It’s official, the Nikon Corporation has just confirmed the development of the Z9, the company’s first flagship model that uses the Nikon Z mount. This full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless camera is scheduled for release in 2021, and utilizes the newly developed FX-format stacked CMOS sensor, along with image-processing engine. Whether if you’re a professional, advanced enthusiast or cinematographer, you’ll appreciate the support for 8K video recording as well as various other video specifications.
