Even if the IQ is the same as the Z9, it would be fun to see some Z8 images.

Probably makes more sense to combine the Z8 and Z9 image/discussion threads since they will be the same sensor and menu system /shrug

Edited. I looked around, and I couldn't find a Z9 image thread either.

Here is the thread - not sure how/why it got archived but maybe that's why it was hard to find:

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1734553/0

Last post wasn't even 2 months ago but maybe that is past some kind of archive threshold.

Picked up my Z8 today and I "dilligently" went through the menu and set it up mostly how I had my Z9 set up (Z9 wasn't with me at the time), AF settings, Lossless Compressed RAW, Copyright, Display etc, etc. Except, just like I did with my Z9, idiot me forgot to set the "Image quality" section to RAW. I don't know if any remember, this is exactly what I forgot to do with my Z9 with my first images that I posted here on FM. As I never alter my camera off RAW I therefore never use the "Image Quality" selection, once I had selected Compressed RAW, I mistakenly just thought it was in RAW.

However, I have to say that the jpegs are simply gorgeous any way. However, I still put them through Capture One Pro and did a few tweaks and some have Topaz noise reduction. Not as good as a RAW image, but not too bad considering.

Anyway, I went to the zoo to get shots as that way I am ensured of subject matter to give the Z8 a decent trial. All I can say is, it is simply a Z9 in a smaller, lighter body as everything seems to work just like a Z9 sans grip section. I shot about 250 images and treating it just I do my Z9, the battery went down 1 bar. So, it should get decent battery life. Lugging around 500gms less is certainly nicer. However, even though the Z8 is good with long lenses, the Z9 is a tad better.

Z8 + 85 f1.2S, 1/800s f/1.8 at 85.0mm iso64







Z8 + 500 f5.6 PF, 1/200s f/5.6 at 500.0mm iso2000







Z8 + 500 f5.6 PF, 1/200s f/5.6 at 500.0mm iso1400







Z8 + 500 f5.6 PF, 1/200s f/5.6 at 500.0mm iso2200







Z8 + 100-400 f4.5-5.6 VR S, 1/60s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso1100

Z8 also with 85/1.2S

























I took a little over 300 shots just trying different things and battery went down one bar.
So far normal everyday usage, I don't think I need to worry much. If I go out for a full day,
I probably won't need more than an extra battery.
Everything felt just like Z9. Surprisingly, with 85/1.2S, I actually prefer using it with Z9 a touch more for better balance.
But I guess if I am going to be walking around all day, the weight and size reduction of Z8 is more than make up for it.

. Yes, Rainbow Lorikeets would have been the right thing with a new camera.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments, Geoff. Much appreciated!

Indeed, this thread is off to a good start. Now why did I make this "deal" in my head that I was going to get a Z8 when I can get $500 off ;-)

I probably missed something, but if I remember correctly, you said, you won't go for it immediately...😂

I was fortunate/unfortunate (depending on how you look at it) that a Nikon rep let me have a play with the Z8 a few days ago. I was weak and buckled.

What if I change the name of the Z9 thread? Will that pull it out of archive I wonder? I guess not,

I stated it a couple of years ago.........at 1bwana1's suggestion.

Robert

Looking forward the the feedback from Z8 shooters.
