Nikon Z9.With an advanced autofocus system, 8K video resolution, fast and powerful processing engine, and more, the Nikon Z9 full-frame mirrorless camera is Nikon’s newest flagship camera. The durable and feature-packed Z9 is a perfect tool for photo and video creators looking to take their imaging to the next level.
Faster Than Ever.The Nikon Z9 now allows you to lock onto any fast-moving object and track them for effortless capture of even the hardest subjects. Its ultra-fast scanning speed has the quickest data readout available. You can expect spectacular image quality in stills and 8K videos alike.
More Powerful Than Ever.Additionally, the Z9’s next-generation EXPEED 7 image processing is Nikon’s most powerful engine yet — at 10x faster than previous models. This means the Nikon Z9 presents an increased AF speed, burst rate, buffer capacity, and video resolution. You can capture those quick sports action shots or fast-moving wildlife creatures with ease.
Subject Detection From Deep Learning.A breakthrough algorithm developed using deep learning enables the Z 9 to automatically detect and track the world’s largest range of subjects —people, dogs, cats, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trains and planes—in stills and video with no menu changes.
Ultra Fast, High-Powered AF For People & Animals.Speaking of fast-moving, Nikon Z9’s advanced autofocusing system means you can keep track of your subjects with no problem. It utilizes a new subject detection algorithm with the largest range of potential subjects — including animals, humans, birds, and cars, and airplanes. Nikon’s famous 3D-tracking mode also makes its first appearance in a mirrorless camera with the Z9.
3D Tracking & Subject Detection.The power of Nikon’s acclaimed 3D Tracking is now available with deep learning subject detection. Effortlessly lock onto fast-moving subjects and track them moving toward you, away from you and everywhere in between.
Focus In The Dark.Subject detection and AF works all the way down to -6.5 EV. Activate Starlight Mode, and focus all the way down to -8.5 EV. And since you’ll be spending more time in the dark, the Z 9’s buttons are illuminated.
A Groundbreaking New Processing Engine.EXPEED 7. The most powerful Nikon processing engine ever. 10x faster than previous generations. Handles complex AF and AE calculations at 120 cycles per second. Separately processes dual-streamed data from the stacked image sensor. Enables next-generationfeatures like 120 fps still shooting, 8K video recording, a blackout-free viewing experience and more.
Keep Your Finger Down. 1000 Image Buffer Capacity.With a seemingly bottomless buffer, the Z 9 shoots continuously for more than 1,000 frames at 20 fps as full resolution High-EfficiencyRAW or JPEG (L) fine files.
The Fastest Write Speeds, Dual CFexpress Tybe B.Under a newly designed latching door are two matched slots optimized for high-performance CFexpress Type B cards. The slots are independent from each other, so you can load cards with different write speeds—including XQD cards.
Silent Mode. Become Invisible.When you need to be invisible, Silent Mode turns off menu sounds and VR Lock and minimizes lens drive noises. And since the Z 9 does not have a mechanical shutter, you can shoot without a shutter click—or plug in headphones so only you can hear the simulated shutter sound.
Steady Handheld Shooting. Enhanced Electronic VR.The intelligence and processing power within EXPEED 7 improves electronic VR for video recording, correcting trapezoid distortion from wide angle lenses and allowing you to create smooth handheld walking shots.
Stacked CMOS Sensor, 45.7 Megapixels. Full Frame.Designed by Nikon specifically to bring ultra-high-resolution image quality to high-speed shooting applications. Achieves the world’s fastest scanning speed, 12x faster data readout than the acclaimed Z 7II and absolutely spectacular image quality in stills and 8K videos.
Durable, Rugged Build.Great for travel, this camera body works to dissipate heat to avoid overheating, and you can rest assured the Z9 will fit nicely in your camera bag with an optimal feature set to match. The Nikon Z9’s camera body features dual CFexpress Type B memory card slots and the four-axis tilting touchscreen LCD monitor is about 3.2” inches. The ergonomic build and vertical grip allow for easy on-the-go shooting, and the absence of a mechanical shutter means silent mode and VR Lock make you nearly invisible in any situation.
Brilliant 8K Video Recording.The Nikon Z9 also has an impressive array of video features for your upcoming production. It can support frame rates and resolutions of 10-bit 8K/30p for up to 125 minutes internally. Further, Nikon has equipped the Z9 with 4K/120p slow motion video playback. Videographers can also record 10-bit 4K/30p from oversampled 8K, all of which will be captured in-camera as ProRes 422 HQ or H.265.
