After thorough testing, the best cameras, lenses and accessories have been revealed at the 2024 AP Awards. Usually, there’s quite a race between various strong contenders across all gear categories for Product of the Year. But this time around, one of the best Nikon mirrorless cameras you can buy now, the Nikon Z 8, left us exceptionally impressed and was a clear standout winner. It took both Product of the Year and Premium Camera of the Year awards at the AP Awards, hosted on 29th February.

You wouldn’t expect less from a camera that’s capable of shooting 45.7MP raw files at 20 frames per second all the while recognising and tracking specific subjects. With staggering buffer speed, built-in image stabilisation and crisp resolution the Z8 will effortlessly tackle any kind of subject. The Nikon Z 8 is the ultimate all-rounder that beats rivals from other brands costing thousands of pounds more. If you want a high-end camera that can do everything, this is it.
