Nikon Z9 Overview

By B&H Photo's
Nikon Z9 Mirrorless Camera
Nikon Z9: Unstoppable
Delivering speed, image quality, and connectivity, the Nikon Z9 is a professional-grade camera characterized by its newly developed sensor, advanced AF performance, and high-resolution 8K video recording. Their first mirrorless flagship camera, the Z9 stands out as a camera that appeals to photographers and filmmakers working across a wide variety of applications.
Stacked Sensor and Powerful Processing Engine
45.7MP Stacked BSI CMOS Sensor
The core of the Z9 is the newly developed FX-format 45.7MP BSI stacked CMOS sensor. Its stacked design offers fast readout speeds and helps to reduce rolling shutter, and the BSI design contributes to impressive clarity and minimal noise when working at higher sensitivities. At 45.7MP, it's also a high-resolution chip that benefits landscape, portraiture, and other detail-oriented genres, as well as enables recording video at resolutions up to 8K. The full-frame BSI design is known for exquisite color and detail rendering, too, and this sensor offers a native ISO 64-25600 range, that can be expanded to ISO 32-102400.
EXPEED 7 Image Processor
Complementing the sensor is an advanced processing engine, the EXPEED 7, which offers speeds approximately 10x faster than a Z 7II. This engine works in conjunction with the stacked sensor design to realize impressively fast AF speeds, burst shooting rates, a high buffer capacity, fluid video performance, and quick all-around handling.

  • Top continuous shooting speeds of 20 fps when shooting in raw, 30 fps when shooting in JPEG, and an impressive 120 fps shooting rate when recording 11MP stills, with all rates supporting full AF/AE performance.
  • Able to buffer over 1000 raw images in a burst, meaning raw image sequences can be recorded for approximately 50 seconds continuously. Also, during playback, you can skip to the first shot of a given burst to expedite the on-camera review process.
  • Pre-Release Capture helps make decisive moment shots easier by recording frames in a burst for up a second prior to actually releasing the shutter. When this feature is activated, burst shooting will commence when the shutter is half-pressed and the buffer will retain up to a second's worth of frames prior to fully pressing the shutter.
  • Electronic shutter affords a top shutter speed of 1/32,000 sec for working in the brightest conditions with wider apertures.
  • Stacked sensor design reduces rolling shutter distortion so fast-moving subjects, like a golf club, tennis racket, or baseball bat, do not appear distorted when working with shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 sec.
  • AF calculations are done at a 120 fps rate to keep up with fast continuous shooting speeds.
  • New High Efficiency RAW file format maintains image quality akin to uncompressed raw files but with file sizes approximately 30% smaller for faster reading/writing to the memory card.
  • Motion Blend Retouch feature can be used to produce an in-camera composite that depicts a series of subject movements within a single frame.
  • Added with Firmware 2.0, an enhanced Long Exposure display includes a live exposure timer on the rear LCD, along with the ability to dim the viewfinder to better preserve your night-adjusted vision.
Electronic Shutter-Only Design
Relying on the speed and stacked design of the sensor, the Z9 completely forgoes a mechanical shutter and uses just an electronic shutter for all capture modes. The speed of the sensor enables recording at up to 1/32,000 sec and the stacked structure reduces motion distortion for accurate depiction of fast-moving subjects, like golf clubs, baseball bats, and automobiles. Also, despite the absence of a mechanical shutter, flash sync up to 1/200 sec. is still supported as well as high speed sync functions.

By removing the mechanical shutter, the Z9 can also operate completely silently and there is no worry over mechanical shutter wear or breakdown. A shutter release sound can be added for awareness when a photo is being taken, and the volume can be adjusted to suit different working scenarios.
Fast and Intelligent AF
493-Point Phase-Detection AF
Covering the full sensor area, the Z9 uses a 493-point phase-detection AF system to realize fast and accurate focusing performance. This system is benefitted by the high-speed communication of the Z interface along with the speed of the sensor that enables AF readings to occur at up to 120 fps. This focusing system also supports working in low-light conditions with a Starlight mode that permits focusing down to -8.5 EV to greatly benefit astrophotography, concert, and other nighttime shooting applications.
Subject Detection with Deep Learning Technology
Utilizing a new algorithm and deep learning technology, automatic Subject Detection can now recognize nine distinct subject types, ranging from humans to animals to airplanes to bicycles. When working in Auto-Area AF, these subjects will automatically be detected, focused on, and tracked to ensure sharp focus when the subject is moving across the frame. Eye-Detection AF, specifically, has been tuned for improved accuracy and refined recognition of eyes in the scene regardless of how small or large they are within the image frame.
The Z9 also sees the debut of the 3D Tracking mode in a Nikon mirrorless camera. This popular focusing mode from Nikon's DSLRs pairs with subject detection to lock onto fast, erratically moving subjects that move parallel and perpendicular to the camera. Additionally, there are three Dynamic-Area AF modes, with a range of focus area sizes, for capturing a broad variety of moving subject types.

Firmware 2.0 has also introduced 20 types of custom Wide-Area AF selection patterns, 12 of which are supported during video recording, for more precise AF and subject detection within a given area of the frame.
8K and 4K Video Recording
Up to 8K Recording Supported
Matching the high-end photo attributes, the Z9 is Nikon's most capable video camera as well, with a variety of resolutions and frame rates available up to 8K. Using full pixel readout, UHD 8K 30p video can be recorded with continuous shooting possible for approximately 2 hours 5 minutes.

Full-frame 4K recording is available, too, up to 120p for slow-motion playback. Using an 8K area, oversampled UHD 4K recording is possible at up to 60p for increased sharpness and detail. Also, high-resolution frame grabs can be recorded in camera from 8K and 4K videos, for producing 33MP or 11MP stills, respectively.
Internal N-RAW and ProRes RAW Video
Added with Firmware 2.0, the Z9 is capable of internal 12-bit raw recording at up to 8.3K 60p in the N-RAW format, as well as support for ProRes RAW recording. Raw recording offers greater tonal and color latitude and can improve dynamic range, benefitting color grading needs and post-production flexibility.
  • N-RAW is Nikon's own raw recording format that offers impressively small file sizes compared to other raw formats as well as the ability to create MP4 proxies for more efficient previewing or transferring.
  • N-RAW recording is available at up to 8.3K at 60p or 24p; 4.1K at up to 120p; 5.3K at up to 60p with a 1.5x crop; and 3.8K at 120p with a 2.3x crop.
  • ProRes RAW recording is also available at up to 4.1K and 60p.
ProRes and H.265 10-Bit Internal Recording
Internal recording with 10-bit color and 4:2:2 sampling is possible in the ProRes 422 HQ and H.265 codecs, and H.264 and 4:2:0 color can be used depending on workflow needs. For more latitude when color grading in post, there is also a 10-bit N-Log setting as well as a Flat color profile. Additionally, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) can be used for creating HDR-ready content straight from the camera.
Firmware 2.0 Video Upgrades
Elevating the cinema capabilities of the Z9, Firmware 2.0 introduced a series of production-related updates for the camera:
  • Red REC frame indicator on EVF and LCD during recording to easily recognize when recording is being captured.
  • Waveform monitor for realtime exposure analysis.
  • Dedicated video info display indicates various recording settings, such as frame size, frame rate, audio settings, codec, bit depth, and HDMI output settings. Some of these settings will also be visible on the camera's top control panel.
  • Fine ISO control in Manual mode for adjusting exposure in 1/6-stop increments.
  • Fast AF-ON function can be assigned to Fn buttons; it is now possible to assign two different AF speeds to different buttons.
  • Slow shutter speed video is supported, slower than 1/frame rate, for working in extreme low-light conditions or for creating intentionally blurred effects.
Professional Body Design
Real-Live Viewfinder
  • Real-Live Viewfinder is a an advanced EVF utilizing a 3.69m-dot OLED panel with adjustable luminance up to 3000 cd/m2 for clear visibility in bright conditions. This EVF also works in conjunction with dual-stream technology for blackout-free viewing when shooting continuously. Firmware 2.0 has further improved the finder's performance with a high fps function, which ups the EVF's refresh rate to 120 fps for even smoother, lifelike viewing.
Four-Axis Tilting LCD
  • A first for Nikon, the Z9 incorporates a 3.2" 2.1m-dot four-axis tilting touchscreen LCD that better supports working from high and low angles, regardless if shooting in the horizontal or vertical orientation. This screen's four-way tilting design allows for easier viewing from a variety of positions and the user interface orientation will also shift depending on how the camera is held.
Tough, Durable Construction
  • Dual CFexpress Type B memory card slots allow for flexible file saving and promote high-speed reading and writing to keep up with the fast continuous shooting and high-resolution 8K video recording. Both slots are also compatible with XQD memory cards.
  • Optimized for a professional workflow, the Z9 is characterized by its ergonomic form factor and inclusion of a vertical grip for easy switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
  • Built to the same dust and moisture resistance standards as the D6, the Z9 has a highly durable and rigid magnesium alloy chassis that manages to be 20% smaller than the former flagship DSLR body.
  • Included EN-EL18d battery offers approximately 700 frames per charge. The Z9 is also compatible with other EN-EL18-series batteries.
  • In-body Vibration Reduction now supports Synchro VR to achieve up to 6 stops of camera shake compensation when used with select Z lenses.
  • VR safety lock secures the sensor and VR mechanism in place to prevent damage caused by movement while traveling.
  • Helping to cut down on dust reaching the sensor, the Z9 incorporates a sensor shield that protects the sensor surface when changing lenses. For additional dust prevention, there is also a dual electro-conductive and fluorine coating on the optical filter covering the sensor.
  • Kensington security slot helps protect against theft when the camera is left unattended.
  • Backlit buttons offer easier navigation and button recognition when working in low-light conditions.
  • Voice memo function for recording short spoken notes while shooting.
Versatile Connectivity
Matching the professional build quality, the Z9 is fitted with a variety of connectivity options to suit various workflow needs:
  • Full-size HDMI port for outputting video to an external recorder or monitor
  • USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port supports tethering, data transfer, and in-camera battery charging
  • Ethernet port supports 1000BASE-T wired LAN connection for transferring files over FTP
  • 10-pin port offers wide accessories and remote connectivity
  • PC sync port for flash sync
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5 GHz) permit wireless transferring of files, remote camera control via a mobile device, and works in conjunction with the NX Mobile Air app for file management
  • GNSS for in-camera geotagging and recording of location info while shooting
Nikon FTZ II Mount Adapter

Featuring a streamlined design with minimal projections, the Nikon FTZ II Mount Adapter offers the same functionality as the original FTZ but with a sleeker design to suit its use on cameras featuring a battery grip. This adapter removes the tripod mount and has a reduced overall size for more comfort when shooting with cameras with a built-in or attached grip or wireless transmitter.

As an adapter, the FTZ II enables the use of nearly any F-mount lens on Z-mount mirrorless camera bodies. While compatible with approximately 360 distinct F-mount lenses, this adapter is especially ideal for use with over 90 AF-S and AF-P type D, E, and G-type lenses, where it fully maintains autofocus and auto-exposure capabilities for seamless use of the SLR lenses on the mirrorless body. The adapter is built from magnesium alloy and is weather-sealed.

the long awaited Z9,,,,,,,, it is not inexpensive, but it is the supreme best camera I own... images are out of this world


By Douglas
Rated 5 out of 5

I ripped apart the Z6 II I bought while waiting on my Z9. Then - thinking it would be forever before it came in - I bought a Z7 II which I like a lot more than the A7R4 I have used. Then less than two weeks after buying that camera - my Z9 arrived. That was 4,900 images ago and now it is time for a review. First - the bad. Okay - now that the bad is over with (which was easy since there is none), let's get to the good. I have been fortunate to own many of the Nikon game changers over time - F3, F5, D750 and D850. This camera is not a game changer for anyone except Nikon. But that is okay. I have used the Sony A1 and debated about purchasing that camera prior to deciding to go back to Nikon for wildlife photography. I rented one for a week and took around 9,000 shots and - that is a great camera. The Nikon is a better video camera, the Sony in the real world probably has a tiny edge in FPS with photography. The remaining differences are just 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. Again - not game changing. Why this camera matters and why I chose it boils down to a few things: - Nikon is in the camera business and is incented to continue serving pros and developing new products as its very survival depends on it. Some of the conglomerate based competition has a history of bailing when a market gets tough and the camera market will get very tough now that Nikon and Canon have gotten mirrorless right and long-term shooters such as myself are able to make the move. - This camera does everything extremely well. I tracked a Tricolored Heron that was around 200 feet away through my old, adapted 600 f/4 and the reticle stayed pinned to the eye the entire way. So - autofocus - check. I have shot bursts at full resolution that play back like a movie. So - speed - check. I have brought back 900 photos from a day long wildlife shoot and every one of them has been in focus with beautiful color and reflected completely what I saw in the viewfinder. So - consistency - check. - I am able to set custom sets of configuration parameters with this camera that allow me to shift back and forth based on the types of shooting I am doing. This isn't completely seamless as somethings I have to go to more than one menu to bring back banks of settings - but this still makes it incredibly easy to change a huge number of parameters on the fly. I got so used to this with my Fuji gear and hope this trickles down to the Z7 II (my Z6 II is now gone thankfully). Ultimately I have nothing bad to say about this camera. It could be better in low light I suppose - but with a dense, 45MP sensor and an ability to clean up nicely in post it hasn't mattered so far. I don't know how you can go wrong here. Nikon has to get some of this tech trickled down to its lower end cameras quick - but once it does any concerns about their relative competitiveness expressed over the last few years should just disappear. This camera shows every sign that it will be worth every penny. Looking forward to the next 5 years or so with this at my side.

Extraordinary camera!

By Jo-David
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-16

This is truly a remarkable camera. My standard go-to camera is a D850, which I still believe to be an excellent camera, but the Z9, coupled with Z lens, far outperforms even the D850 and f2.8 Nikkor lens. I received the Z9 two weeks ago, just before leaving for a trip to the Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon, and used both the Z9 and D850. Not having yet an L-frame for the Z9 to sit on my tripod, I used it solely as a handheld camera. The shots were superb in clarity and color. Having the histogram visible in the viewfinder, compared to the need to use Live View on my D850, was by itself a game changer. The photographs taken in the poorly lit Upper Antelope extremely surprisingly sharp, as were the colors captured in that cavern, despite the need for high ISO settings. Based on my experience this past week, I plan on using the Z9 as my primary camera from now on. Ergodynamically it feels great and the weight is insignificant, given the weight of the Z lens. Of note, I bought a Z7ii last year and never really liked it as much as my D850, so I plan on selling it as soon as I can find a buyer. It can't compare functionally with the Z9. I don't believe that you can go wrong on buying this camera. Admittedly it's expensive, but the quality of its output, as well as its design and all of its built-in features, is extraordinary. The battery, by the way, is light years better than the ones for the other Nikon cameras. I used the same battery the entire week and had to charge it only once (and even then, it was when the battery still had half of its charge remaining).

Like most everyone, I suppose, I had to wait a while to receive this camera. Finally it came - and in time for a fall trip I had planned in Colorado. Great timing. After about 12,000 images in 12 days I can say there is a lot to like (and yes, some things to really love) about this camera and that, invariably, it was worth the wait. I am a nature and wildlife photographer - mostly. In my short experience this camera has done a brilliant job by bridging the gap between providing speed for the wildlife side of my photography and some grace for the landscape side. I have been able to set up menus which help me to transition to each discipline in a reasonable way without much additional fussing about. I cannot say the NIKON menu systems are without flaw because that would be untrue - in my opinion. Both the z7ii and the z9 have some work to do to catch up with the Sony a1 and a7iiii menu systems. The NIKON menus don't seem to have as intuitive a structure as the SONY menus and it would be helpful if the menu bank feature would capture ALL settings for each bank and transition between banks without additional corrective steps. With that said I have still been able to land on a workable system using function button assignments and i-menu assignments that compliment all my shooting needs. I can say I love the color science NIKON has been incorporating into their recent digital platforms starting with the D850. To my eye the colors produced by the recent Z series cameras have been nearly spectacular. The z9 is not an exception to this statement because I love the color it is able to capture and render to the digital files. I also appreciate the deep dynamic rage the z9 is able to preserve for high contrast scenes. My initial experience has been great with this camera and it seems a great deal more rugged than the z7ii's which I have been using since their introduction. The z9 is heavier but the weight has been worth the effort given the results I have gotten from the camera. The protective shutter installed on the z9 which closes during lens changes has been a real joy. I have noticed a significant reduction in the amount of dust and moisture spots collecting on my sensor. Big bonus! Many thanks to B&H for being a continuous partner in my photographic journeys for the past 30 or so years!

it's a little longer than I anticipated, but works great. I'll continue using it until I slowly replace my F glass for S glass. it turns out that the S lenses offer a few more features. I have a 500mm f/4E lens that i really like and use a lot. It sure would be nice to see a new version of this to come out. But, I don't see anything on the horizon.

Is there computer software that we need to use with the Z9? What is it and can it be downloaded before we have the camera (still waiting on the backorder)? Thanks
Asked by: Mr.
You can go to the Nikon site and down load software. If you are shooting raw on the Z9 you will need that or another brand. This is the link to the Nikon down load page, . Scroll down to software.
