Nikon Z 9 Review


Stacked sensor eliminates need for mechanical shutter ; 45MP full-frame imaging leaves room to crop ; Reliable 3D tracking autofocus ; Intelligent subject recognition ; Ample wired and wireless connectivity options ; Big, gripped body for pro SLR fans...

Large body style not for everyone ; Banding may appear in scenes with digital signage ; Z lens system isn't fully built out

The pro-level Nikon Z 9 is a big, fast-focusing camera that features a full-frame Stacked CMOS sensor, reintroduces the beloved 3D Tracking focus system, and offers class-leading support for ProRes Raw video.

DPReview TV: Nikon Z9 Review


The Nikon Z9 is one of the best cameras we've ever tested. But is it the best of the best? Chris and Jordan have been testing the Z9 with the new 2.0 firmware for a while, and they have the answers.

Nikon Z9 review


Nikon takes a leap forward with its most powerful camera ever

Powerful Stacked 45.7MP sensor ; Reliable tracking AF ; Shoots lengthy 8K video clips ; Rugged build quality ; Dual-axis tilt screen ; Excellent battery life ; Dual-axis tilt-screen

Some features need firmware update ; Bulkier and heavier than rivals ; Flash sync only 1/200s

Nikon Z9 review


Demanding image-makers get everything but the kitchen sink provided by Nikon's new flagship full frame mirrorless camera

Whopping 45.7-megapixel resolution ; 8K video ; It can do everything ; Ergonomics ; It's a workhorse

Chunky build, partly due to dual handgrips ; Add a telephoto lens and we may as well be carrying four bags of sugar

Much hyped and much anticipated, the range-topping Nikon Z9 combines 45.7-megapixel resolution stills with up to 8K video to make this a powerfully enticing all-in-one option for pro snappers being called upon to play ‘content creator’ in both...

Nikon Z9 Review


The Nikon Z 9, known hereafter as the Nikon Z9 for naming convention consistency on our site, has been a long time coming. Nikon announced the development of the camera nearly a year ago now, back in March 2021.

Nikon Z9 review


The Nikon Z9 is late to the pro mirrorless party – but with 120fps bursts and 2½ hours of 8K video, it may not matter

120fps burst shooting! ; 8K 60p video resolution ; 2½ hours of 8K 30p video ; Unbeatable value

120fps files are only 11MP ; RAW shooting only 20fps ; Screen not fully articulating ; Some features not till 2022

It's fashionably late, but the Nikon Z9 makes a heck of an entrance. It blitzes the Sony A1 and Canon EOS R3 with its blistering 120fps burst shooting, 8K 60p capability, over 2½ hours of 8K 30p recording, and a dramatically lower price price tag...

Nikon Z9 im Test: Autofokus jetzt noch besser!


Bye-bye, Spiegelreflex: Die Profi-Systemkamera Nikon Z9 ist einfach besser und setzt sich an die Spitze der Bestenliste. Alle Details hat der Test!

Sehr hohe Bildqualität bei Fotos und Videos ; Sehr schneller und sehr genauer Autofokus ; Verzögerungsfreier und sehr heller Sucher ; Sehr hohes Serienbildtempo ; Filmt Video in 8K

Teuer ; Groß und schwer

Die Nikon Z9 ist ein echter Brocken, aber einer, der es in sich hat: Die Top-Profi-Systemkamera kann alles – und alles richtig gut: Egal ob Bildqualität bei Fotos und Videos oder Tempo bei Autofokus und Serien, die Z9 punktet immer. Eines der vielen...

Il ruggito di Nikon con la Z9: in prova la regina assoluta della raffica con la forza di un autofocus pazzesco


Prova di forza di Nikon, che lancia la Z9, un "bestione" che vuole mettere la testa davanti alla Sony A1 e alla Canon R5 ed entrare nel cuore dei professionisti del digital imaging. L'abbiamo provata per qualche giorno, a colpi di raffiche superveloci,...
