The Z 9 has been constantly evolving since its release via firmware updates. Not limited to still shooting, the possibilities of video expression are also wider than ever before. From internal RAW video recording that supports 8.3K/60p in 12-bit and lets you shoot with beautifully rich tones, Hi-Res Zoom that lets you zoom even with a prime lens while maintaining high image quality, 4K UHD/60p video for oversampling, to support for the MC-N10 remote grip for greater efficiency during video shooting — the Z 9 employs myriad advanced video features. These constant refinements to video performance are designed to unleash the potential of all video creators, from professionals to passionate amateurs.
Empowering everyone to pursue their own expression — that's the goal. With this in mind, Nikon's professional powerhouse Z 9 leads a rich lineup including the Z 7II, Z 6II, Z 5, Z 50 and Z fc. In 2022, we also introduced the Z 30, which lets even younger folk coming to cameras for the first time create vlogs and other full-scale videos easily. Creative Picture Controls, 4K UHD/30p video, and slow-motion video put a wide variety of expressive options right in users' hands. The camera pursues the ease of use by adopting a vari-angle LCD monitor, REC lamp that immediately notifies of recording, and video recording of up to 125 minutes*. By giving shape to users' expressive ambitions, we are creating the new standard in image making. This is the future that the Z series envisions.
*In Full HD/24p/25p at 25°C/77°F. The camera's ability to always achieve the full 125 minutes is dependent on conditions like battery life or the camera's internal temperature. Approx. 35 minutes of recording time is available in 4K UHD.
NIKKOR Z lenses unleash the true value of the Z series cameras, capturing abundant light with the large mount and directly guiding it to the image sensor. This visionary system provides greater freedom in optical design and realizes rendering that exceeds all expectations with highest image quality possible and beautiful, natural bokeh. In addition, NIKKOR Z lenses are proactively designed with consideration for video recording, including focus breathing compensation, quiet design and high-quality operation, which expand the possibilities of video shooting still further. What's more, the newly added NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.2 S produces smooth bokeh gradation with a sense of depth that makes the subject stand out three-dimensionally. Stay tuned for further expansion of the NIKKOR Z lineup and its ever-growing expressive possibilities.
