We brought you news yesterday that Nikon wants us to be excited about the future.
In case you missed it, you can read that here.
But today we’re bringing you a glimpse of some of the reasons why we should get hyped for Nikon’s future products – and fast.
That’s because we’ve got the specs for the new mirrorless Z9 and do they impress.
Of course, whether or not you agree with that or not is a matter of debate. After all, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
Yet 2021 should have one beautiful Nikon model in the form of the Z9 with a 46MP sensor, a 20 fps continuous burst rate, blackout-free EVF, 8K video at 30 fps, 4K video at up to 120 fps, improved autofocus, dual card slots, Native ISO range of 64-25,600, Gigabit LAN, USB-C, Wi-Fi, and GPS, FStoppers reports
And it’s going to need that huge laundry list of features, too, if it expects to compete with the flagships coming from Sony and Canon next year.
As far as pricing is concerned, FStoppers and Nikon Rumors are reporting a $USD 6,000 to $USD 7,000 price tag for Z9. In terms of when the unit will actually release, we have a bit of a wait it seems. Most online outlets are pegging the release date for sometime in Fall 2021 with the Tokyo Olympics acting as a kind of testing ground for the new model and its capabilities. When we get more concrete information, you will be the first to know.
