Screw it, I'm finally buying the Nikon Z8 now that it's over AU$1,660 off

When the DCW team was picking their favourite cameras of 2023, mine was the Nikon Z8. In fact, I've been lusting after it since it launched, and while I had the opportunity to pick it up with a saving of AU$1,000 over the Black Friday sales last November, I'm glad I didn't.

That's because the price has gone down further and I'm now saying goodbye to my savings. If you head over to Amazon AU, the Nikon Z8 body is now down to AU$5,637.26, plus there's a coupon code you can redeem at checkout that slashes an additional AU$300 from the discounted price. You end up paying only AU$5,337.26! That's a massive discount of AU$1,661.74!

This really is a whopper of a saving on a magnificent camera that can handle anything you throw at it, whether it be a stills shoot or video. In fact, it's a far better discount than what we saw during Black Friday, when the lowest price was AU$5,799. Note that the actual RRP for this camera is AU$6,999 and it's possible to find it for around AU$5,800 with an additional AU$300 gift card from select retailers, but Amazon's discount is currently the best if you hurry.

In addition to looking after they day-to-day functioning of Digital Camera World in Australia, Sharmishta is the Managing Editor (APAC) for TechRadar as well, and helps produce two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. Her passion for photography started when she was wandering the wilds of India studying monkeys (yes, life took a sharp turn somewhere along the way) and is entirely self-taught. That puts her in the unique position of understanding what a beginner or enthusiast is looking for in a camera or lens, and writes to help those like her on their path to developing their skills or finding the best gear. While she experiments with quite a few genres of photography, her main area of interest is nature photography – wildlife, landscapes and macro. She still prefers an optical viewfinder but is utterly fascinated with what mirrorless technology has been able to achieve. 

With an ear to the ground in the Asia-Pacific territory, she is constantly on top of camera news and breaking developments in the Australian region, in addition to sourcing local deals during big retail events like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday / Cyber Monday. 

She’s also a skilled stargazer, always eager to share astrophotography tips such as photographing the blood moon without even using a tripod!
