Stabilise your images and videos and take clearer shots. The in-camera VR and Synchro VR can work together to achieve up to 6 stops of VR effect for stills, helping you get sharper images easily.

Your photos can be more vivid than ever. On top of the RAW and JPEG file formats, the Z 8 includes the HEIF format to render 10-bit still images with rich tonal gradation. It works together with the QUAD-VGA panel monitor, the world’s brightest 3000cd/m2 monitor panel to show the true colours of your subject – be it during sunrise, sunset, or midday – with live-view shooting or playback in tones close to an HDR monitor. You can rest assured that the image tone is the one you are after, the moment you capture the shot.

Powered by dual-stream technology, the Z 8 records real-time action and captures it simultaneously as it happens through the blackout-free Real-Live Viewfinder, helping you shoot erratic moments and never skip a beat. 

Made to last.

The Z 8 comes with an extra tough, strong, sturdy exterior. It is built with a new environmentally friendly material that is robust and can withstand temperatures up to -10°C, with effective sealing to each cover such as the battery chamber and shutter release button, to make it dust- and drip-resistant. The sensor shield and the dual coating on the image sensor will prevent dust from entering and sticking to the sensor. The Vibration Reduction lock minimises shakes on the image sensor structure, and thus prevents accidental damage. Enjoy greater peace of mind when you carry your camera along a bumpy drive.
