Introducing the Nikon Z8, the latest addition to Nikon's esteemed lineup of mirrorless cameras. With the Z8, Nikon has delivered an exceptional device that combines the powerful features of the acclaimed Z9 with a more compact and affordable design.

Building upon the success of its predecessor, the Z9, Nikon has managed to condense its remarkable capabilities into a smaller and lighter body, making it a practical choice for photographers on the go. The Z9's impressive specifications were a testament to Nikon's commitment to excellence.

Now, with the Nikon Z8, those awe-inspiring features have been ingeniously incorporated into a more portable package. Equipped with a formidable 45.7MP stacked CMOS sensor, the Z8 leverages the power of the Expeed 7 image processor to deliver astonishing performance.

This dynamic duo allows the camera to capture RAW photos at an impressive rate of 20 frames per second, with a staggering buffer capacity of over 1,000 frames. Furthermore, the autofocus readings reach an outstanding 120 frames per second, ensuring unparalleled precision in capturing fast-paced action.

But that's not all—the video capabilities of the Nikon Z8 are equally impressive. With the ability to shoot 12-bit N-RAW at either 8K 60fps or 4K 120fps, videographers will find themselves equipped with a versatile tool that enables them to unleash their creative vision in stunning detail and clarity.

    I am disgusted by commercial blog!
    I also laughed at its wildly overblown hype.

    In its home country of Japan, Nikon is a relic of the past, “Nikon is finished”.
    Nikon is a very conservative manufacturer, incapable of innovation, its optical technology is at the level of 40 years ago, and it has no lens variations. They are also unable to design lightweight and compact bodies. No one in Japan pays attention to Nikon any more.
    Cannon, Sony, Olympus, and Panasonic are the winners.

    Such over-hyped articles damage the credibility of Ghacks.
    This author is indeed not good enough!
