Rumored Nikon Z9 professional mirrorless camera specifications


As promised earlier today, Here is an updated set of rumored Nikon Z9 professional mirrorless camera specifications (previously reported here):

  • Newly developed high-resolution stacked FX sensor. Three different sensors were tested: 45-46MP, 50MP, and 60MP. My guess is that they will go with the 60MP or the 50MP version but I could be wrong (the Z II already has a 45MP sensor, there is no need for another camera with the same resolution). I have received the most tips for a 50MP sensor based on what’s inside the new Sony a1 but improved and with even better performance.
  • Integrated vertical grip handle
  • The development announcement should be tonight or tomorrow
  • Nikon Z9 is expected to be released in the fall of 2021
  • No official plans for a Nikon Z8 camera yet
  • Prototype Z9 cameras will be tested at the Tokyo Olympics next year
  • The Z9 is described as a D6 body combined with EOS R5 imaging, α9II AF, and blackout-free EVF
  • Nikon confirmed that the Z9 will be better than the D6
  • 20 fps
  • Multishot-mode
  • 16-bit RAW option
  • 8k30p, 4k120/60/30p
  • New EXPEED processor designed for 8k (newly developed Imaging Pipeline Processor to broaden sensor readout emphasizing speed)
  • Improved AF (Object detection AF)
  • “Stunning” AF tracking (better than the D6)
  • Two XQD/CFX type B memory card slots
  • ISO 64 – 25,600, Hi1, Hi2
  • Improved noise levels and specifically significantly better dynamic range
  • High resolution, blackout-free EVF: probably 5.76 MP or maybe even 9k MP viewfinder, 120 Hz refresh rate (the resolution can be reduced to increase the refresh rate)
  • New user interface (no second LCD screen on the back like the D6)
  • New battery: Nikon EN-EL18x
  • Gbit LAN, USB-C, WiFi, GPS
  • Price: $6,000 – $7,000
