The best still and video performance in Nikon history. That’s the reasonable promise made by Nikon on the upcoming Z9, its highest-end mirrorless camera to date and the first in the Z-mount line that the company describes as a flagship.
According to the brand, the Z 9 brings together Nikon’s groundbreaking technologies to deliver the best still and video performance in Nikon history, meeting the advanced needs of professionals in a wide range of genres. It utilizes a newly developed FX-format stacked CMOS sensor and new image-processing engine, making it part of a new class of mirrorless cameras that matches high sensor resolution with burst shooting speeds that beat plenty of pro sports DSLRs.
In response to the growing needs of professionals, advanced enthusiasts and cinematographers, it includes support for 8K video recording as well as various other video specifications that fulfill diverse needs and workflows. The Z 9 embodies ultimate usability as a tool, offering users an unprecedented imaging experience from capture to workflow exceeding that of previous digital-SLR and mirrorless cameras.
The Nikon Z9 is set to be available later this year, with some rumours pointing to early Q4 2021.
