Is the Nikon Z8 the best mirrorless camera yet?

TwitterTweet on Twitter FacebookShare on Facebook PinterestPinterest

Nikon’s newest $3,999,95 mirrorless camera, the Z8, has a full-frame 45.7MP Stacked CMOS sensor that, thanks to the Expeed 7 Image Processor, can shoot RAW photos at 20FPS for over 1000 frames. There is also auto-focus readings up to 120FPS and impressive video specs: 12-bit N-RAW at 8k 60FPS or 4k 120FPS. And if all of that sounds very familiar it’s because the Nikon Z8 is almost the exact same camera as the Nikon Z9, but in a much smaller body and even lower price.

The new Nikon Z8 will be available on May 25, 2023 for $3,999.95 and the external MB-N12 battery grip will be available in May for $349.95.
