The Z 8 represents the ultimate in a hybrid camera offering powerful still and video performance in a professional build, with compact and lightweight handling. The Z 8 offers many of the features of the Z 9, in a 30% smaller body, and is 15% smaller the D850.
Experience the intense resolution and freedom provided by 8K60p (N-RAW) and 8K30p, and the ability that this massive resolution gives in post to crop and pan. Expansive 4K UHD video options for when the look you're going for is anywhere from cinematic to slow motion, ranging from oversampled1 24p/30p, all the way to 120p with sound.
The Z 8 can record up to approximately 125 min. in 4K UHD/60p1 and up to approximately 90 min. in 8K UHD/30p2. Internal 12-bit RAW footage can be captured as ProRes RAW 4K60p, or up to 8K60p in N-RAW, Nikon's RAW video format that is approximately a 50 per cent smaller file size. N-RAW also creates a 1080p proxy file for easier editing. Capturing RAW footage allows for the most image data and highest bit rate for maximum range and flexibility.
For more latitude with colour, footage can be captured internally in 10-bit ProRes 422 HQ, while other profile options are available in-camera, including an enhanced N-Log, HLG as well as the easily gradable Flat colour profile.
