A Review of the Nikon Z 9 Mirrorless Camera for Wildlife Photography

Nikon's Z 9 mirrorless camera is here, and it challenges the supremacy of the Sony a1 and Canon EOS R3 at the top of the professional mirrorless camera race. One of the genres that often demands such cameras is wildlife photography, and this awesome video review takes a look at how the Z 9 performs. 

Coming to you from Morten Hilmer, this excellent video review takes a look at the new Nikon Z 9 mirrorless camera for use in wildlife photography. The Z 9 has some of Nikon's most advanced technology, including:

  • 45.7-megapixel stacked BSI CMOS sensor
  • 20 fps raw shooting speed (30 fps using JPEG) with image buffer of over 1,000 images
  • 120 fps shooting speed at 11-megapixel resolution
  • ISO range of 64-25,600
  • Fully electronic shutter with speeds up to 1/32,000 s, with very low rolling shutter
  • 493-point phase-detection AF with focusing down to -8.5 EV and Deep Learning Technology
  • 8K video at 30 fps and 4K video at up to 120 fps
  • ProRes and H.265 10-Bit internal recording
  • Four-axis tilting touchscreen
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant construction
  • In-body vibration reduction with up to six stops of compensation
  • Backlit buttons
  • Dual CFexpress Type B card slots

Altogether, the Z 9 looks like quite the impressive camera. Check out the video above for Hilmer's full thoughts.

I'm curious to see a review using the camera in a hot environment that might overheat the sensor and shut the camera down.

Should be fine. It's not a Canon.
