Photographic authority DPReview posted their Nikon Z 9 review, and boy are they fond of this camera. They gave it a 94% score (and Gold Award), the highest score they ever gave (if I am not wrong). From their conclusion:
Image quality is excellent, with the tiny dent in dynamic range, compared with the D850 or Sony a1, not making any appreciable real-world difference. There appear to be few downsides to the new Raw compression options, either, which is hugely valuable when you’re capturing twenty 45MP images every second. Autofocus is also frankly phenomenal: combining Nikon’s easy-to-configure usability with speed and performance to match the best we’ve ever seen.
The Nikon Z9 is perhaps the most complete camera we’ve ever tested. It shoots excellent 45MP images at up to 30fps (20 with Raw), it captures 8K video in everything from 8-bit MP4s to 12-bit N-Raw. Its autofocus system is both powerful and easy to use and works well for both stills and video. It’s larger and heavier than some of its rivals, which make it less well suited to some applications, but overall it combines the best of a DSLR and a video camera in a single body.Read the review at DPReview…
Nikon surprised everyone releasing a Nikon Z 9 firmware update that’s so huge it could have been an entirely new camera.
