A powerhouse for video. Internal 8K/60p and 4K/120p video

Up to 8K/60p and 4K/120p: All the depth and detail of 12-bit RAW in a file half the size of ProRes RAW HQ files.

Up to 4K/60p: A professional go-to for its flexibility, consistency, and practicality when editing footage taken by different types of cameras all using this codec.

Up to 4K/60p: An industry standard for its rich depth and detail, easy grading, and flexibility to edit on-the-go from a laptop.

Full HD Proxy Files: Simultaneously created in-camera when shooting in ProRes RAW and N-RAW, making editing footage a quicker and smoother process

N-Log Profile: Utilizes extensive color depth and dynamic range to give more control over the look of your final footage.

Compact & Lightweight

Pro Audio

Capture 24 bit linear PCM sound right to the memory card alongside your footage. Compatible with professional XLR microphones using Tascam’s digital adapter CA-XLR2d-AN (sold separately).

Expandable with Accessories

Nikon proudly partners with leading innovative brands to minimize the gear you need for a shoot and bring the best experience to the Z 8.

A dream for photography. 45.7MP stills, more flexible than ever.

RAW 14-bit: Capture the full dynamic range, color and image information captured by the Z 8’s exceptional 45.7MP full-frame sensor.

High Efficiency RAW 14-bit: Retain the outstanding image quality of traditional RAW with approximately 1/3 smaller file size.

HEIF 10-bit: Richer tonal gradation than JPEG with increased luminance at a comparable file size. Great for stills and creating 8K HLG time-lapse videos in-camera.

Blazing fast frame rates.

With unrivaled burst speeds and a seemingly bottomless buffer the Z 8 gives you the edge when photographing birds, sports, weddings and once-in-a-lifetime moments. Features 20 fps RAW and JPEG, 30 fps JPEG Fine, 60 fps JPEG Normal DX Crop Mode and 120 fps 11MP JPEG.

All-electronic shutter with no moving parts.

Performs at lighting-fast speeds with no vibration, noise or wear and tear and virtually no rolling shutter distortion.

Recover the shots you missed with Pre-Release Capture. The Z 8 can record the moments before and after you actually press the shutter release button, saving shots that would otherwise have been missed.
