Nikon Z9 is a true flagship full-frame mirrorless camera to come.

The Z9, Nikon’s flagship full-frame mirrorless camera, has finally been verified to be “in development” by the camera manufacturer.

However, other than stating that it would be available in 2021, the Japanese camera manufacturer is not providing any further information on this next high-end camera.

The press release says that the Z9

“represents a significant leap in technology and performance,” 

and that it will 

“deliver the best still and video performance in Nikon history” 

including 8K capture.

Other details include using a “newly created FX-format stacked CMOS sensor and new image-processing engine.” Still, we are not given any further information on the resolution or the technologies included in the sensor.

It seems like ages ago that we wrote about the five characteristics we’d like from a Z9; in fact, it was back in 2019 that we composed the post, so it’s been a long trip for the Z9 to get to this point.

In the meantime, Nikon has introduced their top-of-the-line DSLR, the D6, which appears to be a comparable prospect if you look at the official picture of the Z9 at the top of this page. Simply choose between mirrored or mirrorless, depending on your preference.

With the D6 in mind, we forecast that the Z9 won’t go all-out on resolution; instead, it will focus on being a super-fast shooter for professionals, with a subsequent release focused on epic numbers of pixels. This prediction was made because the D6 was released. Therefore, you can anticipate that Nikon will claim that this camera has the best autofocus in its class.

However, for the time being, all we can do is conjecture. But as Nikon prepares for the Z9’s public debut, more details will become available over the following several months.
