Decisive moments. Extreme conditions. Still or video, captured with confidence.

Nikon's first mirrorless flagship, the Z 9 offers image-makers the power and sophistication to overcome challenges and reliably capture the crucial moment. The Real-Live Viewfinder reveals every single moment*1. 12-bit RAW video recording up to 8.3K/60p can be recorded in-camera, for an incredibly agile video solution. The 4-axis tilting monitor lets you comfortably explore diverse angles. All these are packed into a durable, magnesium-alloy body with integrated vertical grip, that can function down to -10°C/14°F. The Z 9 ensures you won't miss any decisive moments even in the most difficult situations, and together with NIKKOR Z lenses' outstanding rendering power, enables you to put them into the most creative, beautiful images.

Powerful AF system that detects the world's largest*1 range of 9 different subject types for both stills and video while also featuring 3D-tracking.

Real-Live Viewfinder connecting photographers to every single moment in motion with no skipped frames or loss of view*2.

High-Speed Frame Capture+ up to 120 fps*3 for FX-format and 60 fps for DX-format, as well as Pre-Release Capture further assist in nailing the decisive moment.

World's fastest*4 scanning speed minimizes rolling-shutter distortion while realizing a design without need for a mechanical shutter, making massive amounts of still-photo shooting possible.

In-camera recording of 12-bit RAW up to 8.3K/60p makes it possible to produce ultra-high-resolution video with a small staff and without extra gear, which can also be oversampled for 4K UHD/60p, 50p and 30p videos.

Hi-Res Zoom allows photographers to effectively extend the telephoto range beyond the lens' potential for up to 2x, while creating amazingly sharp hi-res zoomed video in 4K by real-time cropping from 8K recording.

High-Frequency Flicker Reduction for still images is available in video recording mode.

Timecode sync among multiple cameras via Bluetooth facilitates postproduction, allowing more flexibility to use the Z 9 in a wider range of scenes.

Highly ergonomic, 4-axis vertical/horizontal tilting monitor offers diverse angles.

Solid body with robustness and drip- and dust-resistance equivalent to the D6 now functions down to -10°C/14°F.
