The Flagship Nikon Z9 Full Frame Camera Will Shoot 8K Video

Nikon has just announced the development of their next flagship full-frame mirrorless camera. The Nikon Z9 will feature a newly-developed FX-format stacked CMOS sensor along with a new processor that will be capable of recording internal 8K video, thus officially joining the club of mirrorless 8K shooters like the Canon EOS R5 and Sony Alpha 1.

The Z9 will deliver ultimate usability as a tool, offering users an unprecedented imaging experience from capture to workflow exceeding that of previous digital-SLR and mirrorless cameras, Nikon states. The full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless camera is scheduled for release in 2021 and represents a significant leap in technology and performance.

Other features of the upcoming flagship model that are still not confirmed include a 16-bit RAW video output, N-Log profile, improved noise levels, a new user interface, and enhanced dynamic range.

According to Nikon, content creators should also expect various other video specifications that fulfill diverse needs and workflows “offering users an unprecedented imaging experience, from capture to workflow”.

It is still unclear, though, when the new model will be rolled out. Odds are, we won’t see the official release of the Nikon Z9 until the fall of 2021.
