Nikon Z8 Rumors.
Even after nearly two years of speculation with no official announcement or reliable specs, some new rumors about the Nikon z8 release date are surfacing.

We’re probably going to see the announcement from Nikon themselves Nikon Z8, Z6 Mark III and Z7 Mark III are long overdue.
So it’s about time Nikon coming up with new models and this event is the right place to announce those.Let’s recap on the rumored specs of the upcoming Nikon cameras Nikon Z8 will mirrorless camera.
- Which will feature a 61.20 megapixel full frame stack CMOS sensor a fully articulated LCD screen and dual CF Express slots are also going to be in the camera to make it more compelling for a semi-high-end camera.
- On another hands Nikon Z6 Mark III will have a 33 megapixel FX format CMOS sensor coupled with the xb7 image processor.
- It will allow the camera to shoot 4K at 60fps without crop a new image recording algorithm and dual memory card slots are also going to be in the body and there is no rumors around in the Nikon Z7 Mark III.
- So probably we won’t see this camera anytime soon Nikon has all the potential to recapture its last Fame.
Nikon Z8 Design.
According to the rumors, the Nikon Z8 camera design is production-ready. The only issue they’re facing right now is the ongoing shortage of paths.
If we look at the previously unconfirmed specs, we see that the C8 will be an SLR-style mirrorless camera. It’ll be a more refined version of the z9 body with no grip, replacing the mighty D8 50, which is ideal for landscape photographers.
Some pictures and mockups of the Z8 are also surfacing, but there’s no confirmation on those yet.
Nikon Z8 specification.
- 61.20 megapixel
- CMOS sensor
- 4K at 60fps
- fully articulated LCD screen and dual CF Express slo
The Z8 will feature a 61.2-megapixel full-frame stacked CMOS sensor. it’s been surfacing for a while that the Z8 will have a higher-megapixel sensor to compete against Sony and Canon.
A fully articulated LCD screen and dual CF Express slots are also expected to be here. On the other hand, the z9 is too big for street photography and traveling, and the Nikon d850 is arguably the best of those scenarios.
So the Nikon Z8 makes sense for Nikon, so it would be the Z version of the d850. However, releasing the Nikon Z63 before the Z8 makes even more sense. because the company needs to compete in the mid-tier camera market before releasing another semi-high-end camera.
It’s been over two years since the z62 was released, so where are the Z8 and z63? Nikon is far behind its competition. The z30 and black CFC are the two big products from them in 2022.
It seems like they’re holding back too much to make the perfect camera, but they need to understand that there’s nothing called a perfect camera, and if there were one, there wouldn’t be any future cameras.
Innovation is about to arrive. Nikon’s R&D is slowing due to a loss in market share; however, if they decide to release successors to popular cameras, they can cover up the losses.
To be honest, most Nikon fans really just need the Z8 to perform at the level that the A7R5 appears to be at if the camera is released, everyone will be disappointed again because it will almost certainly fall short of the rumors.
Nikon Z8 Release Date
Two road maps surfaced on the web a few months ago, and we later learned that they were just some users’ wish lists.
- those roadmaps never came true, and now according to Nikon rumors, Nikon will announce the Z8 in May 2023.
- Previous rumors suggested that the Nikon z8 will release in august 2022 but that not possible and Now fresh tweet from the leaker how2fly @camaetainsider suggested that the Nikon Z8 announcement late in may 2023.
- There not only mention about the z8 but also the Nikon Z7III and the Nikon Z6 III. Which are not announced this year.
which means we can expect an announcement in March of next year. There are no confirmed specs links, but it’s supposed to compete with the Sony a7r5, so we can expect some similar specs in the Z8 now.
