The Nikon Z9 will start shipping on 15 December, according to two of the biggest camera retailers – the first confirmation of when the new body will be hitting mailboxes, after Nikon's nebulous "November 2021" release date. 

This will come as welcome news to those who were blown away by the Nikon Z9's awe-inspiring specifications, including its 8K 60p video, 120 frames per second (yes, really!) burst shooting and 45.7MP full frame image sensor.
