Nikon Z8 to be Announced in April and Released in May 2023?

Exciting news for all you camera enthusiasts out there! The highly-anticipated Nikon Z8 is rumored to be hitting the market soon, and Nikon Rumors has just released some juicy details on this game-changing camera. While nothing has been officially confirmed yet, it appears that the Z8 will share some similarities with its predecessors, the Z7 and Z9. According to the latest rumors, the Z8 will be a hybrid of these two models, featuring a form factor that’s similar to the Z6/Z7, but with significant improvements in both the EVF and autofocus departments.

One of the most exciting aspects of the Nikon Z8 is its expected 8K60p capabilities, which would make it a standout among other cameras in its class. It’s also rumored to feature a USB-C port for power supply and charging, as well as a whopping 9 million dot EVF – a feature that has already been introduced by Sony for their a7S III, a7R V, a1 cameras. While we can’t confirm all of these details just yet, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on the Nikon Z8 as more information becomes available.

So, what else do we know about the Nikon Z8? According to sources, the Z8 will be announced sometime in April, with a potential release date in May. Additionally, it’s rumored to have the same battery as the Z7 (EN-EL15c), which will be compatible with an external battery grip for extended shooting capabilities. As for price, it’s expected to be around €4,500 in Europe, although it’s unclear if that price includes the lens kit or just the camera body. In the US, the price is expected to be slightly cheaper than usual.

While we can’t say for sure what the Nikon Z8 will be capable of, one thing is certain: it’s going to be a major player in the camera industry. With its rumored improvements in autofocus and EVF, not to mention its potential 8K60p capabilities, the Z8 could be the camera to beat in 2023. Of course, we’ll have to wait until we get our hands on it to know for sure, but based on the rumors so far, it’s looking very promising.

As for its place in the Nikon lineup, it’s possible that the Z8 will be positioned somewhere between the Z7 and Z9 models. While it’s not expected to have all the features of the Z9, it could offer a compelling combination of performance and price that appeals to a wide range of photographers. Some speculate that the Z9 will be designed for capturing moving subjects, while the Z8 may be geared more towards landscape and portrait photography, with a focus on visibility of focus position and accuracy. Whether these rumors turn out to be true or not, it’s clear that the Nikon Z8 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting camera releases of the year.
