A few days ago, in an interview with the American information service DPPreview, Keiji Oishi, Department Manager of the Imaging Business Unit at Nikon Corp., announced the prospect of introducing a mirrorless full-frame system camera this year that would match or exceed the performance profile of the Nikon D6 DSLR could. Now Nikon has officially confirmed the development of the flagship model Z 9. The camera will be presented later this year and will represent a significant leap in technology and performance, the company said.
The Nikon Z 9 is said to achieve the best imaging performance of any camera in the history of the manufacturer, both when taking photos and when capturing video. To achieve this, Nikon wants to use a newly developed, multi-layer (stacked) CMOS image sensor in FX format and combine it with a new image processor. The Z 9 will enable 8K video recording and offer numerous other video functions for different requirements and workflows.
