Nikon Z8 Rumored to be Announced in April 2023

Nikon enthusiasts, brace yourselves for the newest addition to the Nikon mirrorless camera line, the Nikon Z8! Although not yet confirmed, rumors about the Nikon Z8 are spreading like wildfire in the photography community. Thanks to Nikon Rumors, we got our hands on some juicy details about this hybrid camera that is said to be a cross between the Nikon Z7 and Z9.

So, what do we know about the Nikon Z8 so far? Well, according to reliable sources, it will have an improved electronic viewfinder (EVF) with a whopping 9 million dots, a feature that was first introduced in Sony a7S IIIa7R Va1  cameras. Additionally, the camera is expected to have improved autofocus capabilities and a USB-C port for USB power supply and charging, making it a more convenient choice for photography enthusiasts on-the-go.

But wait, there’s more! The Nikon Z8 is said to have the same battery as its predecessor, the Z7, and will be compatible with an external battery grip for extended shooting sessions. Moreover, the camera is rumored to have the same sensor as the Z9, which means users can expect high-quality images and videos from this camera.

Now, let’s talk about the camera’s form factor. According to some sources, the Nikon Z8 will have a form factor that is similar to the Z6 and Z7, which is great news for those who are used to handling these cameras. However, it’s important to note that the Z8 won’t have all the features of the Z9, which is the company’s flagship mirrorless camera.

But when can we expect the Nikon Z8 to be released? If rumors are true, we can expect the camera to be announced as early as April and released by May, making it a perfect camera for summer photography sessions. The price of the Nikon Z8 in Europe is rumored to be around €4,500, although it’s still unclear whether this price includes the camera only or the lens kit. In the US, the price is expected to be cheaper than usual.

To sum it up, the Nikon Z8 is a highly anticipated camera that is sure to excite Nikon enthusiasts and photographers alike. Although there’s still a lot of speculation surrounding this camera, the rumors so far have been promising. Will the Nikon Z8 live up to the hype? We’ll have to wait and see!
