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.
People, animals, birds, vehicles. No other AF system can recognise so many subjects in a scene at once. The Z 9 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 Z 9 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.
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.
Blackout-free EVF for real-time views
You have never seen a view like this before. The Z 9 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.
The Z 9 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Z 9 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.
