Rumored Specifications of the Nikon Z9 High-End Mirrorless
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, October 7, 2020 @ 12:30 AM (EST)

One Nikon Rumors reader’s rendering of a hypothetical Nikon Z9

Ever since Nikon executives confirmed that a pro-level (D6-equivalent) Nikon Z mirrorless camera is on its way, folks in the rumor business have been hard at it. Now, Nikon Rumors has published a list of specs “from a reliable source”:

  • The Z9 is described as a D6 body combined with [Canon] EOS R5 imaging, [Sony] α9II AF, and blackout-free EVF
  • 46MP (previous rumors suggested a 60MP sensor)
  • 20fps
  • 8K30p, 4K120/60/30p
  • New EXPEED processor designed for 8K
  • Improved AF (Object detection AF)
  • Two XQD/CFX type B memory card slots
  • ISO 64–25,600, Hi1, Hi2
  • High resolution, blackout-free EVF
  • New user interface (no second LCD screen on the back like he D6)
  • New battery: Nikon EN-EL18x
  • Gbit LAN, USB-C, WiFi, GPS
  • Price: $6,000–$7,000

Whether this is genuine or more of a wish list is anybody’s guess, but either way, we’ll apparently have to wait till next fall to find out. Announcements of top-of-the-line cameras from Nikon, Canon and Sony are all expected to materialize around the Tokyo Olympics in the summer, delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, with prototypes possibly tested during the Games.
