The Nikon Z 9 Has Been Equipped With Impressive Technology, Allowing For Advanced Photography Outcomes

Powerful speed 7 for peak performance 

Unleash new levels of performance in the Nikon Z 9 with the advanced expeed image processing engine. Allowing for 10 x faster-processing speed compared to the Nikon 7 II, this device is equipped to take your photography to the next level! The uniquely designed engine processes dual-streamed data from the image sensor separately, taking into consideration the real-live viewfinder, allowing for optimal performance outcomes in both imagery and videography.  

Convenient design and high performing build

The Nikon Z 9 has been designed with comfortable use at top of mind. Being 20% smaller than the previous Nikon Z 6 model, this device is highly portable. Battery life is no concern in the Nikon Z 9 which has been fitted with an impressive EN-EL18 series battery, varying 700 shots or up to 5100 when using burst. 

Persistent tracking makes it easy to focus on your subject 

The Nikon Z 9 is the first device within the Z series to have been equipped with 3D-tracking solutions. In addition to this impressive feature, the Z 9 takes it up a notch.. Paired with subject detection, users can continue to track fast-paced subjects that approach closely and then move away quickly. Looking for a device that will capture performing athletes at the highest quality? Look no further than the Nikon Z 9. 

Track up to 9 unique subject types with impressive range capability 

The Nikon Z 9 has been equipped with an impressive algorithm that allows users to capture up to 9 different subjects while achieving reliable AF. When shooting humans, the camera works to detect and maintain focus on one’s eye, even when wearing accessories such as goggles, providing outstanding quality. In dynamic situations where the AF cannot track a person’s face, it will automatically switch focus to the head or upper body to maintain focus on the subjects.    

Take advantage of the vast AF coverage in the new Nikon Z 9. This device has been equipped with three dynamic-area AF modes: (S) with a focus area equivalent to that of the D6 model, (M) with an area as large as that of the Z 7II, and (L) with a greater focus setting than we’ve ever seen in this range. The incorporation of these advanced AF settings assists users in unpredictable moments, such as sports photography. 

Improved stacked CMOS sensor allows for the world’s most minimal rolling-shutter distortion

The Nikon Z 9 has been fitted with a unique stacked CMOS sensor including 45.7 effective megapixels, working to enable approximately 12 x faster readout compared to the Z 7 II. Equipped with the world’s fastest scanning speed, this device achieves minimal roller-shutter distortion.
