Nikon Isn’t Dead Yet: Flagship Z 9 Mirrorless Camera Specs Emerge

Home Gear

Now that the Canon EOS R5 is here to match step with the Sony a9 Mark II, eyes are turning to Nikon in anticipation of a possible powerhouse mirrorless camera from their side. It seems that that camera, the Z 9, is on its way next year, and its specifications look quite impressive.

With Canon expected to release a flagship R1 next year and Sony also in line for a new powerhouse camera, Nikon Rumors is reporting that Nikon will also be getting into the action with the Z 9, which according to a “reliable” source, will likely have the following specs:

  • 46-megapixel sensor
  • 20 fps continuous burst rate
  • Blackout-free EVF
  • 8K video at 30 fps
  • 4K video at up to 120 fps
  • Improved autofocus
  • Dual card slots
  • Native ISO range of 64-25,600
  • Gigabit LAN, USB-C, Wi-Fi, and GPS

Unsurprisingly, with its flagship specs, the Z 9 is expected to command a flagship price in the neighborhood of $6,000 to $7,000. Nonetheless, it is likely to be a welcome camera for Nikon shooters waiting for a mirrorless equivalent to the D6. The Z 9 is expected in fall of next year and may be tested alongside a new Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 lens during the rescheduled Olympics.
