Nikon Working on 8K Mirrorless Camera - Nikon Z9 ?

According to latest rumor Nikon already have working prototypes 0f 8K capable fullframe Mirrorless camera. At Apple’s WWDC 2019 event we have seen Canon working 8K cinema camera. Now in the same event, to demonstrate the video editing capabilities of new new Mac Pro. Apple team used a 8K movie created by Ami Vitale. We all know that Ami Vitale is a National Geographic photographer and also a brand ambassador for Nikon.

The video shown was described as 8K ProRes raw footage originating from a documentary shot in Kenya, which was said to have been captured and edited in HDR. Every single frame of 8K camera was of 33 MP. It clearly indicates that upcoming High-End Nikon Mirrorless camera Nikon Z9 may carry a 36MP FF CMOS sensor and a option to record 8K videos.

Update – The Video was Shot by RED Monstro not Nikon Z9

Update by one of Readers Bob

Guys, most of that Africa footage was shot by my buddy Mark Toia on an 8K RED. It was indeed transcoded from R3D files to ProRes because the new system isn’t optimized to decode native Red files…. yet!

EOSHD website confirms this information

– the documentary was shot on RED Monstro in 8K by Kiwi cinematographer Mark Toia of ZOOM Film and Television.

    What a waste of effort. 8K is an idiotic feature at this stage. 4K60p 10 bit internal recording would be far more useful as would making AF performance the highest priority. D850 class AF-C performance is a must and realistically they should do better given they’ll be up against Sony’s next-gen cameras when this ships.

    Also, you cannot do 8K with a 36MP 3:2 format sensor, you need 39MP minimum since 8K is 16:9

    It sure looks like Nikon is finally throwing down on video. First they announced external 10-bit recording — no Panasonic, but better than Sony — and then the raw external recording.

    8K makes plenty of sense for anyone delivering in 4K, just as 4K makes perfect sense for HD delivery. But any system capable of full 8K processing will have plenty of 4K fun. 8Kp24 would consume roughly the same bandwidth as 4Kp60 in 12-bit raw. And you’d kind of hope, given their force feeding XQD cards, that they actually support in camera 10-bit or even raw recording.

    Unlike Sony and Canon, Nikon doesn’t have to worry about “protecting” a cinema camera line. They do have to worry about Panasonic coming to video full frame with nearly full Varicam quality and features.

    Of course, rumors always speak about perfect cameras. But it would be dandy to not be hit with disappointment at the reveal.
