2023-12-21 – Nikon Z 8 Experience, v1.0 published. Available at, Amazon, Kobo, Apple, and Barnes and Noble.

2024-02-15 – Figure 3.116 in the book accidentally shows the g2 options for the Lens Fn buttons, rather than the f2 options. This will be corrected in the Firmware 2.00 update version of the book.

2024-02-07 – Firmware 2.00 released. This is a significant update, adding several new features and options for stills and video, some of which are taken from the flagship Z9 model. Additions include Pixel Shift Shooting, Bird subject detection, Auto Capture, new Picture Controls, and Exposure Delay. The accuracy of 3D-Tracking autofocus mode has been improved for certain situations, and you can now also adjust the border width size of the AF Point on the displays, as well as adjust the shutter sound and volume.

You can learn about all the updates, and download the firmware from Nikon, here:

The book has been updated for Firmware 2.00.

2024-03-01 – Nikon Z 8 Experience, v2.0 published. This version incorporates all of the Firmware 2.00 updates to the camera. Available at, Amazon, Kobo, Apple, and Barnes and Noble.

If you have signed up for updates as explained in the book, you should have been notified about downloading the latest version. Please contact me if you need the Firmware 2.00 updated version of Nikon Z 8 Experience.

2024-03-06 – Correction – I mention the MC-CD2 Remote Shutter Release Cord in the text and in the Accessories section. However, I do not believe this accessory is compatible with the Z8. Please see page 863 of the Z 8 Reference Manual for a list of compatible Remote Terminal Accessories

2024-06-02 – Nikon Z 8 Experience, v2.1 published. Several typos corrected.

2024-06-05 – Correction – Chaper 1 states that “The Z 8 uses the EN-EL15c battery, though it is compatible with previous versions of the EN-EL15.” This should be clarified to say that the camera is compatible with the EN-EL15c, EN-EL15b, EN-EL15a, but not the EN-EL15.
