We have known the Nikon Z 9 mirrorless camera is on its way fairly soon for a while now, and specs have been slowly trickling out. Another set of specs have leaked, and it looks like the camera will be quite impressive.
Nikon Rumors is reporting some new specs on the upcoming Z 9 flagship mirrorless camera. So far, we have heard things like a 45-megapixel sensor, a 30 fps burst rate, blackout-free EVF, 16-bit raw, 8K video, and more. The newest reports include more on the camera, and some interesting rumored specs include a lower-resolution burst mode offering up to 120 fps, built-in GPS (likely GNSS), a sensor-protection mechanism that covers the sensor automatically when changing lenses, a car autofocus mode, improved 3D tracking, a third joystick, and more. Most exciting, however, is that the official announcement is expected soon, likely within the next two months. Unsurprisingly, though, due to the ongoing parts shortage, consumers can expect a fairly lengthy wait to receive the camera. Historically, Nikon often experiences delays with popular cameras, and that in tandem with the parts shortage is likely to make it tricky to get one's hands on the camera. That being said, it looks like the Z 9 will be a mightily impressive camera.
