    Camera Features:

    Compact & Lightweight

    Hold the camera more comfortably and move around more smoothly. Take advantage of a lighter camera system when shooting on a gimbal, with fewer cables and less setup time.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    Skin Softening

    Easily make skin look its best while keeping eyes and hair tack-sharp. Works for up to 3 subjects in a shot.

    Portrait Impression Balance

    Simple, precise control over the hues and brightness, all optimized for skin tones.

    Improved White Balance

    Manual adjustments are faster and more intuitive, and Auto WB has been optimized for human subjects.

    Illuminated Buttons

    Major buttons are softly illuminated for easier operation in the dark.

    Image Frame Display

    Easily confirm your composition with a thin line indicating the image frame.

    Viewfinder Brightness

    Optimize the brightness of the EVF with Lo1 or Lo2 to reduce eye strain.

    Warm Display Colors

    Preserve your night vision with warm red menu tones and reduced brightness.

    Starlight View

    AF detection range expands to -9.0 EV* and display optimizes for confirming of point light sources. *In photo mode, AF-S, ISO 100, f/1.2 lens, 20°C/68°F

    Eye AF for Videos and Stills

    Lock on to the eyes of people, pets and birds, even when they’re small in the frame, covered by hair, glasses or goggles, right-side up or upside down.

    Custom Focus Areas

    Wide-area AF offers 20 custom options for defining your focus area.* Ensure the bride and groom are in sharp focus, even when wedding guests are in the foreground. *12 Wide-area AF C1/C2 options in video mode

    Enhanced Low-light Focusing

    Subject detection and AF work all the way down to -6.5 EV. Activate Starlight Mode, and focus all the way down to -9 EV.

    Edge-to-Edge Sharpness

    With more light reaching the sensor, fine details and textures are captured faithfully across the entire frame, from corner to corner.

    Dreamy Bokeh

    NIKKOR Z lenses transform out-of-focus areas into a smooth, beautiful blur that makes subjects stand out.

    More Light Gathering

    With the largest full-frame mount of any mirrorless system, Z series lenses have larger rear elements that deliver more light to the sensor.

    Reduced Focus Breathing

    Many NIKKOR Z lenses all but eliminate focus breathing, maintaining a consistent viewing angle while pulling focus in videos.

    Faster Lens-to-Camera Communication

    The wide diameter of the Z mount accommodates more communication points, enabling larger amounts of metering and autofocus data to be shared between the lens and camera.

    Two USB Type C Ports

    One USB data connector (SuperSpeed USB) for file transfers and connecting accessories, another dedicated for charging and providing constant power.

    Network Menu

    Dedicated tab giving you quick access to key settings.

    1000BASE-T Wired-LAN

    The USB Type C data connector port supports IEEE 802.3ab gigabit Ethernet with a compatible adapter.
