Nikon has announced that they are working on the full-frame Nikon Z9, which will be the first flagship Z-mount camera and is due to be released this year (2021). They have shared this product shot, although the appearance of the camera may differ. The camera will use a newly developed full-frame stacked CMOS sensor, a new processing engine, and 8K video recording, which means the camera will have a sensor with a resolution of at least 33.1 megapixels (as this is the resolution of an 8K frame). Further information is unknown, and we don't know the expected price or the release date.



From Nikon: London, United Kingdom, 10th March 2021: Nikon is pleased to announce the development of the first flagship camera for the Nikon Z mount: The Nikon Z 9. The full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless camera is scheduled for release in 2021, and represents a significant leap in technology and performance.

The Z 9 brings together Nikon's groundbreaking technologies to deliver the best still and video performance in Nikon history. It utilises a newly developed FX-format stacked CMOS sensor, and a new image-processing engine. In response to the growing needs of professionals, advanced enthusiasts and cinematographers, the Z 9 also includes support for 8K video recording as well as various other video specifications that fulfil diverse needs and workflows.

The Z 9 offers users an unprecedented experience in terms of outstanding performance and operability and exceeds that of previous digital-SLR and mirrorless cameras.

* Information regarding the release of this product will be announced at a later date.

Millions of us are still waiting for the mirrorless camera with an optical viewfinder. If it's not in this iteration we'll have hold onto our money(and our DSLRs) and continue the wait.
