Nikon Z9 confirmed: Flagship full-frame mirrorless incoming

(Pocket-lint) – Nikon has lastly confirmed that its flagship full-frame mirrorless digicam, the Z9, is “in improvement”.

However apart from it’s scheduled for a 2021 launch, the Japanese camera-maker is not going into minutae element about this incoming top-end digicam.

The press launch says that the Z9 “represents a major leap in know-how and efficiency,” and that it’s going to “ship the most effective nonetheless and video efficiency in Nikon historical past” – together with 8K seize.

There’s another element, such because the inclusion of a “newly developed FX-format stacked CMOS sensor, and new image-processing engine,” however we do not get to know extra concerning the decision or on-sensor applied sciences. 

It feels like an age ago that we wrote about the five things we’d want from a Z9 – because it was, we penned that article back in 2019 – so it has been a protracted highway for the Z9 to get this far.

Within the interim the Nikon D6 top-end DSLR has been introduced which, in the event you take a look at the official Z9 pic on the high of this web page, seems like a fairly related prospect. It is simply the selection between mirrored or mirrorless.

With the D6 in thoughts, our prediction is that the Z9 will not go all-out on decision – it would as an alternative give attention to being a super-fast shooter for professionals, with a later launch specializing in epic quantities of pixels as an alternative. So count on class-leading autofocus to be Nikon’s declare right here.

For now, although, we will solely speculate. However extra info will clearly be incoming over the subsequent few months as Nikon ramps up for the official Z9 launch.
