World’s best AF scene detection system.
Best-in-class 8K video resolution and internal recording.
World’s fastest still image frame rate of 120 fps.
World’s fastest scanning speed.
World’s first truly blackout free electronic viewfinder.
First Nikon camera with 4-axis vertical and horizontal tilting monitor.
Until now, achieving a blackout-free view meant repeating certain frames within the viewfinder. The Z 9 is the first camera with a viewfinder that reveals every single moment1—including those previously blocked by conventional EVF or DSLR systems. Smoothly follow every movement of your subject, even when capturing at 120 fps.
World’s brightest; adjustable to 3000cd/m2.
Choose what settings and information appear in the EVF.
Reduces display size so the whole frame is visible.
It goes up. It goes down. It goes left. It goes right. Shoot from nearly any angle—high, low or sideways—and maintain a clear, bright view of the frame. When you rotate the Z 9 for vertical shooting, the user interfaces within the monitor and the Real-Live Viewfinder also rotate to a vertical orientation*.
*When using the camera in photo mode.
3.2 inches (diagonal), bright and beautiful.
Tap, swipe and flick and pinch.
All moving parts are sealed against dust, dirt and moisture.
Go from “off” to “shooting” in less than half a second.
Customizable and placed to prevent misoperation.
Because the world doesn’t fit in just one orientation.
High-speed CFexpress Type B for maximum capacity and write speed.
Theft prevention when you need to leave your camera unattended.
Works with EN-EL18 series batteries and a new EN-EL18d battery that can handle up to 170 minutes of video recording.*
*Based on CIPA Standards. In “monitor only” mode.
The Z 9 maintains a button layout and integrated vertical grip similar to the D6, but it’s 20% smaller.
Automatically closes when you remove a lens. Blocks out dust and accidental touches.
An electro-conductive coating repels dust while a fluorine coating makes it easy to wipe the sensor clean of dust.
Locks the sensor securely in place to prevent jostling when traveling over rough terrain.
Deliver your images to your editor faster than ever with built-in 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi for over-the-air transfers and 1000BASE-T, the fastest wired LAN protocol, for faster wired transfers.
In venues where Wi-Fi access is spotty or in high-demand, get an edge over the competition by transferring images at high speed with a 4G or 5G smartphone. Automatically transfer shots in real-time, or add IPTC information, voice memos, crop and rotate with the smartphone before sending.
By simply flicking upward or downward in fullscreen playback, images can be sent, protected or rated, voice memos can be added and images can be prioritized to skip the queue during large transfers.
The most impressive optics ever created by Nikon. Overwhelming sharpness, excellent point-light reproduction, beautiful bokeh and minimum aberration. Optimized for video recording with quiet operation, suppressed focus breathing and a control ring for smooth aperture, exposure or ISO adjustments. The perfect match for the Z 9.
A breakthrough algorithm developed using deep learning enables the Z 9 to automatically detect and track the world’s largest range of subjects—people, dogs, cats, birds, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trains and planes—in stills and video with no menu changes.
AF and AE calculations are made at 120 cycles per second with rapid, constant communication between the lens and the camera through the Z mount. Even small, erratic subjects like birds in flight are tracked with ease.
Eye Detection AF automatically tracks the eyes of people, dogs, cats and birds (and similar creatures) even when they’re small in the frame, covered by hair, glasses or goggles, right-side up or upside down.
The power of Nikon’s acclaimed 3D Tracking is now available with deep learning subject detection. Effortlessly lock onto fast-moving subjects and track them moving toward you, away from you and everywhere in between.
Subject detection and AF works all the way down to -6.5 EV. Activate Starlight Mode, and focus all the way down to -8.5 EV. And since you’ll be spending more time in the dark, the Z 9’s buttons are illuminated.

EXPEED 7. The most powerful Nikon processing engine ever. 10x faster than previous generations. Handles complex AF and AE calculations at 120 cycles per second. Separately processes dual-streamed data from the stacked image sensor. Enables next-generation features like 120 fps still shooting, 8K video recording, a blackout-free viewing experience and more.
With a seemingly bottomless buffer, the Z 9 shoots continuously for more than 1,000 frames at 20 fps* as full resolution High-Efficiency RAW or JPEG (L) fine files.
*When using the recommended memory card: ProGrade Digital CFexpress™ Type B 2.0 Cobalt 1700R.

Under a newly designed latching door are two matched slots optimized for high-performance CFexpress Type B cards. The slots are independent from each other, so you can load cards with different write speeds—including XQD cards.
When you need to be invisible, Silent Mode turns off menu sounds and VR Lock and minimizes lens drive noises. And since the Z 9 does not have a mechanical shutter, you can shoot without a shutter click—or plug in headphones so only you can hear the simulated shutter sound.*
*A simulated shutter sound and release timing indicator can be set as desired.
The electronic shutter in the Z 9 achieves the world’s most minimal rolling-shutter distortion2, eliminating the need for a mechanical shutter. Shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 second in complete silence, with no shutter vibration and no concerns about shutter wear.
The intelligence and processing power within EXPEED 7 improves electronic VR for video recording, correcting trapezoid distortion from wide angle lenses and allowing you to create smooth handheld walking shots.
Designed by Nikon specifically to bring ultra-high-resolution image quality to high-speed shooting applications. Achieves the world’s fastest scanning speed2, 12x faster data readout than the acclaimed Z 7II and absolutely spectacular image quality in stills and 8K videos.
The Z 9 delivers advanced Vibration Reduction (VR) with Synchro VR* where 5-axis in-body VR and 2-axis lens VR work together, achieving an effect equivalent to a shutter speed up to approx. 6.0 stops** faster.
*Compatible with the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S, NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S and NIKKOR Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 VR S. The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S requires firmware update.
**Based on CIPA Standards. When using the telephoto end of the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S with NORMAL mode.
Turn your shutter speed all the way up to 1/32,000 second and shoot wide open in harsh light. Enjoy the beautiful bokeh of NIKKOR Z lenses in more situations than ever.
New RAW format retains the same high image quality, dynamic range and flexibility as conventional RAW files with approximately 1/3 smaller file size. Speed up your workflow.

If you want to buy a new camera, Photo-Op is the one. Ever since we were planning to buy the Nikon Z9 months ago, they were still giving me updates about when will a new stock will arrive. From planning to go there to going on a road trip just to buy the Z9 on-hand was an experience I'll never forget. They were very accomodating, you'll feel comforable in their office, the staff were very knowledgeable about the cameras and what my relatives would ask, they will answer. The unboxing of the Z9 was really exhilarating to be honest. It was an experience of a lifetime to get my very first Mirrorless Full Frame Flagship Camera. And kung gusto mo talaga bumili ng bagong camera, mag rent ng lens, mag pa cleaning, at iba pa, sa Photo-Op ka na. Kasi sa Photo-Op, andyan talaga ang tunay na "Photo Opportunity." Till next time uli, Nikon PH☺️❤️📸
Only one word can describe the Nikon Mirrorless Z9, INSANE !!!! I also have the Z7II body 45.4 megapixel. INSANE one less notch compared to the Z9 !!!
Honest review about the product I got from nikon philippines was amazing. At first, I had doubts about online shopping. But these company Thinkdharma Inc. was true to it's business. I was heading all possible questions about the product and also for the online payment transaction. They did a great job about answering ur inqueries and throughout transaction. They're staff are warm accommodating. And took video while packaging my order. So far it's legit. Don't hesitate to buy high' end cameras in these company photo-op/ nikon phil. Now, that I have it, all I can say is I am content with product and service. Thank you nikon phil. Hope to continue good service and value customers most of the time. 🙂🙂🙂
