A Review of the Powerful Nikon Z 9 Mirrorless Camera

The Nikon Z 9 has arrived, and it has officially brought the company back into competition with Sony and Canon for the most powerful full frame camera crown. So, just how good is the new body? This excellent video review takes a look at what you can expect from it. 

Coming to you from Maarten Heilbron, this excellent video review takes a look at the new Nikon Z 9 mirrorless camera. Nikon included pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in the Z 9, including: 

  • 45.7-megapixel stacked BSI CMOS sensor
  • ISO range of 64-25,600 (native)
  • 30 fps continuous burst rate in JPEG
  • 20 fps continuous burst rate in raw
  • 120 fps continuous burst shooting at 11 megapixels
  • Image buffer of over 1,000 in raw
  • In-body vibration reduction offering up to six stops of compensation
  • Fully electronic shutter speed with up to 1/32,000 s speed
  • Very low rolling shutter
  • 493-point phase-detection AF with sensitivity to -8.5 EV and deep learning technology
  • 8K video at 30 fps with full pixel readout  and 4K at up to 120 fps
  • ProRes and H.265 10-Bit internal recording
  • Four-axis tilting touchscreen
  • Dual CFexpress Type B card slots
  • Dust- and moisture-resistance
  • Backlit buttons

At $5,496, while expensive, the Z 9 offers the Sony a1 and Canon EOS R3 a lot of competition. Check out the video above for Heilbron's full thoughts on the Z 9.
