Nikon is readying what could be assumed is their flagship skilled mirrorless digicam, the Nikon Z 9. An announcement for this digicam is predicted a while within the subsequent couple of months.

It seems like Nikon goes in a really completely different path than Sony’s flagship Alpha 1, and Canon’s EOS R3. The EOS R3 is NOT going to be Canon’s flagship mirrorless digicam, as I count on we’ll hear extra concerning the Canon EOS R1 later in 2022.

The Nikon Z 9 was in use on the Tokyo Olympics, however it seems like all EXIF information had been scrubbed from any pictures taken with the digicam. This digicam seems to be a real flagship skilled mirrorless digicam, over the toy that’s the Sony Alpha 1.

Nikon launched a lackluster flagship DSLR within the Nikon D6, which didn’t supply a lot in the way in which of development from the earlier Nikon D5. It seems like they put lots of R&D {dollars} within the new Nikon Z 9 and different Z mount mirrorless cameras. Canon did give an enormous replace within the type of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, which is able to maintain the professionals over till the Canon EOS R1 hits the market, however I believe lots of these clients will probably be in line for the Canon EOS R3 as their first foray into an expert mirrorless physique.

With out additional ado right here’s what Nikon Rumors is aware of concerning the Nikon Z 9.
