Nikon has announced its new flagship camera, the Nikon Z9 – a mirrorless camera featuring the Z mount, a full-frame stacked CMOS sensor and 8K video capability, which will be available this year. 

The Nikon Z9 was revealed in a short development announcement, so full specifications were not revealed, though its 8K functionality will put it in the same technical wheelhouse as the Canon EOS R5 and Sony A1. The official image reveals that It bears the 'pro DSLR form factor' of the Nikon D6, with a built-in vertical grip (and, presumably, an extra-large battery with increased capacity).
