If you're a Nikon Z9 owner then you are used to having one of the best mirrorless cameras on the market, and possibly the best camera for sports photography too, but you will be familiar with its firmware updates that have slowly been adding new features to the camera since its launch.

Well, today Nikon dropped firmware 5.0 for the Nikon Z9 and this firmware is so massive that it even came with its own press release – a sign, at least, that there are some features worth mentioning, so I'll go out on a limb and say it makes the Nikon Z9 even better!
