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

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.
