(Pocket-lint) – Nikon has revealed what it describes as the “most sophisticated flagship camera ever made” by the company.
The Nikon Z9 will be discussed in great depth during a virtual event that will take place on November 5 between 12 PM and 8 PM BST; meanwhile, a video showcasing the camera’s capabilities may be viewed on YouTube right now (and below).
The CMOS sensor within the camera has a resolution of 45.7 megapixels, and it also has EXPEED 7 processing. Its autofocus system has 493 points, including 405 auto-area AF points, and it uses deep learning AI to enable simultaneous identification of up to nine distinct subject categories.
Additionally, there is support for 3D tracking, which is a first for a mirrorless camera produced by the company.
Video may be recorded in resolutions of up to 8K at 60 frames per second and 4K at up to 120 frames per second. In addition, time-lapse photography is accessible on board.
The maximum number of full-resolution RAW photos captured in a single burst is 1,000. The total frame rate is 20. When shooting at 11 megapixels, the burst mode may be raised to 120 frames per second.
The Z9 has an ISO range ranging between 64 and 25,600. (expandable to the equivalent of 32 to 102,400).
The body is twenty percent more compact than the Nikon D6, and it features a weather-sealing system that enables photography in various environments.
The body only of the Nikon Z9 will be sold separately for £5,299, €6,299, or $5,499 when it becomes available “during the winter of 2021.”
