Description

Take a quantum leap forward

Astounding speed. Unparalleled precision. Phenomenal detail. Stills or video—the Nikon Z9 flagship mirrorless camera will help you achieve flawless images without fail. Whether it’s news, sports, fashion, reportage, events. Take the most advanced camera we’ve ever made. To places only you can reach.

The Z 9 will take you as close to perfect as you can imagine. The new, stacked 45.7 MP full-frame CMOS sensor and ultra-fast EXPEED 7 processer deliver astonishing image quality. Nikon’s most advanced AF system ever re-defines tenacious. Day-long shoots. Hours of 8K video. The most extreme locations. The fastest action. The Z 9 stands up to the toughest professional demands—and then some.

Class-leading, mind-blowing AF

Continuous AF calculations performed at unheard-of speeds. Simultaneous subject recognition powered by advanced AI algorithms. Real-time views with absolutely no EVF blackout. There might not be an algorithm for luck—but there’s a whole system for precision.

Deep-learning AI

People, animals, birds, vehicles. No other AF system can recognise so many subjects in a scene at once. The Nikon Z9 can lock onto eyes no matter how small the subject is within the frame and recognise faces—even if they’re upside down!

Advanced auto-area AF

The phenomenal 493-point AF system includes 405 auto-area AF points—five times more than the Z 7II. Subject tracking across the frame surpasses even that of the acclaimed D6. 10 AF-area modes let you optimise your AF setup for any job.

Advanced 3D tracking

The pitch. The sky. The track. The Nikon Z9 follows subjects with ferocious precision. Our most advanced 3D-tracking system understands what you’re shooting and reacts instantly to changes in subject position, orientation, or velocity.

Blaze ahead—fast

Blistering speeds of up to 120 fps with full AF/AE put the Z 9 firmly in a class of its own. You can also shoot at 20 fps and capture over 1000 full-resolution images in one high-speed burst. Lens choice is vast, with over 100 fast Nikon lenses supporting shooting at up to 120 fps.

No visible rolling shutter

The world’s fastest sensor-scan rates and super-fast shutter speeds virtually do away with rolling-shutter distortion. Images won’t look warped. Straight lines will look straight.

Fast shutter speeds

Shutter speeds of 1/32000 combine with the camera’s ability to shoot at ISO 64 for incredible depth of field when shooting with fast NIKKOR Z lenses, even in extreme bright-light conditions.

Tireless buffer

Shoot without interruption. The deep, high-speed buffer won’t slow you down, and easily handles shooting at up to 120 fps. Dual slots accept fast CFexpress Type B cards that easily keep the buffer clear.

Blackout-free EVF for real-time views

You have never seen a view like this before. The Nikon Z9 boasts the world’s brightest³ (3000-nit) electronic viewfinder display—and there’s absolutely no lag. You get a genuine continuous real-time view. If your subject moves or there’s the slightest change in the scene you’re shooting—you’ll see it.

Four-axis tilting monitor

Adapt to the moment with fast, flexible framing. The large, responsive monitor tilts 90 degrees from a horizontal or vertical shooting position. You’re free to let the action lead, and nail extremely low or high angles with ease.

Intuitive information display

The info display automatically rotates when you switch to shoot vertically. The clean interface makes settings quick to confirm in landscape or portrait orientation, and the i-menu and ISO buttons are easy to reach when shooting vertically.

Advanced on-the-spot customisation

The Z 9 lets nothing come between you and the image. You can have the info display show a pure view, or customise display elements for the scene you’re shooting. Scrolling through shots on the touchscreen monitor is quick and seamless.

 

Shoot like it’s not even there

Like all truly exceptional tools, the Nikon Z9 has been built to disappear. Instant start-up. Balanced weight. Robust build. This camera is as tough as you’d expect a Nikon flagship to be—and as agile as you want it to be. You’ll feel so comfortable with it in your hands, you won’t have to stop and think about anything—except what you’re shooting.

Spacious

Intuitive

The Nikon Z9 is 20% smaller than the D6 but it still handles beautifully on extended shoots. A deep grip allows a secure hold for horizontal and vertical shooting. Smart button placement enables two-handed operation when reviewing images. Every inch the professional’s tool, the main control layout will be so familiar to Nikon flagship DSLR users that you can just keep shooting. A new AF mode button lets you switch AF mode and AF area mode during viewfinder shooting.
   

Rugged

Dependable

Knocks. Drops. Surprises. The skeleton of the Nikon Z9 is forged from magnesium alloy for the ultimate balance of strength and lightness. On an extended shoot? The camera maintains high electromagnetic-shielding and heat-emission performance. Come rain. Come shine. Come dust storm. The Nikon Z9 is built to withstand extremes of temperature and humidity. Extensive weather sealing keeps both the camera—and Z series lenses and mount adapters—working as long as you do.

 

Sensor shield

A new sensor shield protects the sensor from dust and fingerprints when you’re changing lenses. Lens after lens after lens, your gear has you covered—literally.

Dual-sensor coating

A conductive coating creates a magnetic field that actively repels dust particles from the sensor. While a fluorine coating makes it simple to wipe dirt away.

Illuminated buttons

On a night shoot? The top and rear LCD control panels and key buttons illuminate with a flick of the power switch. Easily change camera settings in the dark.

 

Game-changing images

Astonishing detail. Pin-sharp precision. The quality of the files coming straight from the camera is where you win or lose. With the Nikon Z9 — you win. Maximum colour depth is astounding. Dynamic range in stills and video is truly staggering. Images are exceptionally clean. File sizes are revolutionary.

Extraordinary in any light

A native ISO range of 64 to 25600 (expandable to 32-102400, equivalent) couples with an advanced noise-reduction algorithm—and in-camera flicker reduction. Nail exceptional results under the toughest lighting conditions.

Intelligent AWB

From diverse skin tones to sunsets. New AI algorithms offer exceptional Auto White Balance accuracy when shooting portraits or working in natural light. Dedicated algorithms ensure faces are properly exposed when using iTTL fill flash.

A new way to deliver RAW

Go all in on image quality without compromising transfer speeds. The Nikon Z9 lets you work with a new high-efficiency RAW file format. Files retain the same level of detail as uncompressed RAW—at one-third of the standard RAW file size.

 

Faster, smoother workflow

The Nikon Z9 adapts to any workflow. Dual card slots accept CFExpress Type B cards, giving you approx. 2x the write speed of cameras that use Type A cards. Perfect for ultra-high-speed shooting or recording 8K video. In-camera GPS records UTC time stamps in the image data, and advanced network options make short work of large files. Transfer speeds are the fastest in the field.

Remote production made easy

FTP that syncs with your workflow

Seamlessly sync shutter release and send feeds between a master Nikon Z9 and a series of remote cameras. You can also sync clock time—for quick review of critical moments in post, and perfect audio and video syncing at the destination server. Deliver right from the pitch. The Nikon Z9’s in-camera Wi-Fi lets you transfer images directly to an FTP server without the need for a separate wireless transmitter. If PCs are prohibited, you can connect your Z9 to a 5G smartphone via USB.
   

Record-breaking network speed

Reliable support for NPS professionals

Connect a network cable and the Nikon Z9 will transfer images directly to a PC or FTP server at unparalleled speeds. The camera’s wired LAN supports 1000BASE-T standard and all connection options can be controlled from a single menu tab. Major sporting events. Newsworthy locations. Big commercial shoots. Onsite or at a service centre, Nikon Professional Services is there to support your work with technical advice, repairs, and even loan equipment.

 

Exquisite 8K video—in-camera

The Nikon Z9’s incredible imaging power lets you record exquisite full-frame 8K video and time-lapse movies in-camera. You can record hours of 8K video footage at 30p—or go all the way with a firmware update and record RAW 8K video in ultra-smooth 60p. You get full AF/AE and Eye-Detection AF when filming. Files are beautifully clean, and Nikon’s new N-RAW format keeps file sizes manageable.

 

Cinematic 8K flexibility

4K video at up to 120p

Nikon’s N-RAW lets you use the full width of the Z 9 sensor to internally record ultra-high-resolution 8K video. The Nikon Z9 also records thrilling 4K UHD footage, using the full width of its sensor. You get absolute clarity in every pixel, and more client-friendly file sizes. Choose from frame rates, including 120p for silky-smooth slow motion.
   

24-bit sound

Flexible codec selection

With 24-bit sound available in linear PCM recording, the Nikon Z9 lets you record footage with beautifully dynamic audio. You can also turn off power to the microphone connector, diminishing unwanted noise from unused components. You can record at an 8-bit/10-bit depth in-camera using H.265 (HEVC), or 10-bit Apple ProRes 422 HQ. Expand your range to 12-bit in-camera recording with a firmware update that supports ProRes RAW HQ and Nikon’s new N-RAW format.

 

Perfect exposure

The camera’s Zebra display doesn’t just show you zebra patterns. Now you also get an indication of mid-tones—ideal for checking the exposure of skin tones.

Perfect focus

Know you got the shot. When playback is paused, the Nikon Z9’s video display can be enlarged so you can more easily confirm focus.

Low HDMI latency

See the action, catch the action. HDMI latency has been reduced to noticeably bring down the lag between live action and monitor display.

8K still frames

You can extract high-resolution still frames from 8K footage, and save them as individual JPEG files. Ideal if you need to deliver video footage and stills.

 

Lenses. Re-framed.

No canvas too big. No detail too small. No action too fast. The professional range of NIKKOR Z–S-Line lenses is ready for everything you ask of it—and more. Extraordinary resolution. Vast depth of field. Elaborate bokeh. Pair the Nikon Z9 with an S-Line NIKKOR Z lens and achieve what you never thought possible.

Extreme apertures

Hone your creative vision with the growing series of f/1.2 primes that begins with the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S. Transcend limitations with the NIKKOR Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct, the fastest NIKKOR lens ever.

Super-fast focusing

Combine the range of fast Z mount lenses with the range of F-mount lenses compatible with the Nikon Z9, and you have more than 100 lenses capable of supporting the Z9’s fast 20 fps shooting speeds.

Thrilling stabilisation

When used with NIKKOR Z lenses with built-in VR, the Nikon Z9 can offer up to 6 stops of image stabilisation in up to five directions (pitch, roll, yaw, X, and Y). Shoot handheld at slower shutter speeds without sacrificing sharpness.

Legendary F-mount lenses too

The second-generation Mount Adapter FTZ II makes it extremely comfortable to use an F-mount lens with the Nikon Z9. You get plenty of room to position your fingers when shooting vertically—even if wearing gloves.

 

Unparalleled creative lighting

Red-carpet events. High-concept fashion shoots. Fast-paced urban sports. The Nikon Z9 is compatible with Speedlights and Speedlight systems suited to any location and every assignment. The camera’s electronic shutter means you can work with a flash in complete silence when needed. New AI algorithms remove the risk of over-exposing people’s faces by accurately controlling the volume of light fired.

Advanced Wireless Lighting System

Flagship camera. Flagship flash.

Command single or multiple flashgun setups with ease. Nikon’s renowned lighting system lets you place up to three groups of remote Speedlights to creatively light shots with almost no interference from obstacles or ambient lighting. Always ready, always reliable. The SB-5000 is the perfect partner to the Nikon Z9. This iTTL radio-controlled flash does not require a direct line of sight and allows over 100 rapid-fire shots with the flash operating at full power.
