STOCK UPDATE! With the pandemic and resulting electronic chip shortages causing havoc in the global camera industry, retailers are struggling to stock enough of some of the most popular camera models.

It’s  was fashionably late, but the Nikon Z9 definitely made an entrance. On paper it beats the Sony A1 (opens in new tab) and Canon EOS R3 (opens in new tab) with its blistering 120fps burst shooting, 8K 60p capability, 2 hours of 8K 30p recording, and a price tag that’s hundreds of bucks cheaper – though the A1 still has it licked in terms of resolution. Still, this is a remarkable camera that promises next-level professional performance.

The Nikon Z9 boasts features some truly ferocious specifications…. As it stands we’ve been hands-on with the Nikon Z9 (opens in new tab), and we’ve come away very impressed. 

The Z9 can shoot at an astounding maximum resolution of 8K 60p and 8K 30p can be maintained for up to 125 minutes – significantly longer than that of its rivals. 

It can also capture 4K up to 120fps, with 24-bit PCM audio, in a variety of codecs: 8- or 10-bit H.265, 10-bit Apple ProRes 4:2:2 HQ or 12-bit in-camera ProRes RAW HQ.

As you would expect, the electronic viewfinder offers blackout-free shooting thanks to a dedicated readout from the sensor for an uninterrupted view of the action. In conjunction with the radically redesigned autofocus system, this means you should never miss a shot.

The new system is powered by Deep Learning AF (opens in new tab), which makes the camera capable of nine kinds of simultaneous subject recognition: human eyes, faces, heads and upper-bodies; animal eyes, heads and bodies; and cars, planes, trains and motorbikes. While it has the same 493 AF points as the Nikon Z7 II (opens in new tab), it has 5 times more auto-area AF points to the tune of 405),the  back-side illuminated nature of the new image sensor, which places the electronics behind the photosites, results in superior low light performance – and combined with the native ISO64-25,600 sensitivity (expandable to ISO32-102,400), the Z9 is a formidable low light performer.

So, if you're a professional photographer or videographer, who's after pristine images and you're looking to make the change to a full-frame mirrorless camera – or you like swapping from shooting stills to video – this should definitely be on your shortlist.
