But you need to have a 8K monitor or display to playback 8k video recording if not than it is meaningless.

NIKON Z9 to have 8K@60fps

Video performance is equally impressive. The Z9 will be able to capture 8K at 30p at launch, along with oversampled 4K 30p from an 8K capture that should be incredibly sharp. If you don't mind pixel binning or line skipping, it will also be able to capture 4K at up to 120 fps.

Nikon plans to introduce a future firmware update that will enable 12-bit 8K 60fps capture in a new, proprietary N-RAW format or using Apple ProRes RAW HQ capture at 4K/60p. Nikon promises that you'll be able to capture the oversampled 4K/30p for more than two hours at "normal" temperatures.


The Nikon Z9 has been tested to video record 8K@30fps for about 1.5 hrs continuously without overheat, something which the current Canon and Sony (both 8K@30fps) cameras cannot do. Watch the video below





Key Specifications​

  • 45.7MP Stacked CMOS sensor
  • 30 fps JPEG shooting
  • 20 fps Raw shooting (for over 1000 compressed Raws)
  • 120 fps JPEG shooting at 11MP resolution
  • 8K/30p capture and 4K-from-8K, with ProRes 422 HQ option
  • 8K/60p, 12-bit 8K N-Raw and 4K ProRes RAW to be added with f/w
  • Internal 10-bit N-Log and HLG capture
  • 3.69M dot OLED EVF with reduced lag and greater brightness
  • XM dot rear LCD with multi-directional tilt
  • Twin CFexpress Type B card slots
  • Full-time electronic shutter camera
  • Sensor shield to protect sensor
The Nikon Z9 will be available before the end of 2021 (in the US, at least), with a recommended price of $5500, body only.

Finally more 8K Cameras! Can't wait for them to get more affordable. For now I'm good with my A7s iii.

CANON EOS R5 C also can record in 8K@60fps, but needs an external power supply (e.g. Anker PowerCore+ 26800mAh PD 45W power bank) to do that. By itself, it can record 8K@30fps max. It costs S$6599


Quote

Supports 8K/60P Internal RAW Recording


The 8K sensor and DIGIC X processor produce high-quality video at up to 8K/60P. Use of the Cinema RAW Light format with its high-efficiency mode enables internal card recording without an external recorder.

Unquote




It is lighter, smaller and cheaper than NIKON Z9

FI, NIKON has released its Z9 v2.0 latest firmware which allows users to shoot in 8K@60fps

Got a local quote for the CANON R5 C (w 8K@60 fps video recording)

1) Body - $6149
2) RF Lens 24mm - 70mm f2.8L IS USM - $3019
3) SANDISK 512GB Extreme Pro CFexpress Card Type B - $910 (256GB is $607)
4) SANDISK Extreme Pro CFExpress Card Reader - $77
5) Anker PowerCore+ 26800mAh PD 45W power bank - $189

So, total damage is $10 344

Using the online video calculator below


and keying in the relevant data for the highest resolution of 8K@60 fps

Resolution : 8192 x 4320
Video Length : 30 min
Frame Rate : 60 fps
Bit Rate : 2570 Mbps (https://downloads.canon.com/nw/camera/products/cinema-eos/x-eos-r5-c/EOSR5C_specifications.pdf)

Total file size is 564.26 GB
