Z 8 PRIMARY FEATURES
Weighing at approximately 910g, the new Z 8 allows for agile shooting for an extended period. The camera’s compatibility with an array of videography accessories, including the MC-N10 Remote Grip and wireless video transmitters, and v-mount batteries, significantly reduces the amount of equipment needed during shoots and the set-up time.
The High-Res Zoom allows one to zoom up to the angle of view equivalent to 2x of the focal length, even with a prime lens attached, during 4K UHD (30p/25p/24p) and Full HD video recording in full-frame. The Z 8 can record up to approx. 125 min. in 4K UHD/60p and up to approx. 90 min. in 8K UHD/30p.
Create videos in high-definition 4K UHD/60p, 50p, and 30p oversampled from 8K, providing the opportunity to shoot in high-definition video that can be enjoyed on a large screen. For those requiring higher frame rates, the 4K 120p is also available for greater filmmaking flexibility. Alternatively, amp it up with 8.3K/60P (in N-RAW only) or 8K UHD/30P. Accompanied by N-Log for colour grading, users can tell impressive stories in motion. When using High-Speed Frame Capture+, users can record up to 1 second before the shutter button is fully pressed, or up to 4 seconds after the button is fully pressed.
Subject detection also works in 3D-tracking, auto-area autofocus (AF), or 20 types of custom wide-area AF (12 types in video). Capture night scenes with clarity with the excellent AF detection range down to -7 EV (-9 to 19 EV in starlight view mode) – allowing enhanced detection of subjects under darker conditions. The new support for HLG (HEIF) format also provides an option for 10-bit still images with richer tonal gradation.
Adding on to the robustness of this camera is Sereebo P series, a new environmental-friendly material used on the main body components, which can endure knocks and withstand temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius. Furthermore, the dust-and-drip resistant design helps to prevent dust and liquid from entering the camera. Obtain stable shots with a powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) that achieves an effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 6.0 stops with the in-camera VR and Synchro VR. Electronic VR is also available in video recording.
