The Nikon Z9 is anticipated to be introduced this week and all of us suspected that there would most likely be not less than a few leaks main as much as the official announcement. What most likely none of us anticipated is that it will be Nikon themselves who leaked it. However that seems to be precisely what’s occurred.
Nikon India unintentionally posted the Z9 promo video a little bit early. It’s since been eliminated, though it’s been downloaded and reposted in a bunch of areas and it confirms a few of the specs for the upcoming digital camera.
It looks as if the video was an inner edit that ought to have by no means been turned unfastened on the general public, because the music nonetheless has the “Audio Jungle” voice overlay all through it. Even when Nikon was utilizing Audio Jungle music they’d have licensed the unhindered piece for the ultimate launch of the video. Nevertheless it confirms a couple of particulars concerning the new digital camera.
For a begin, it confirms that the Nikon Z9 is able to capturing 8K video at as much as 60 frames per second, though there does look like not less than a few caveats to that. Precisely what these caveats could also be is unknown, however I’d count on that one in every of them may be the bit depth and the opposite is probably the bit price/codec accessible for this format.
It has a “double coat” on the optical low go filter – IR and AR? – on the sensor. And it’s a sensor that Nikon says supplies the world’s quickest (this, too, comes with a caveat) scan price and is able to 120fps steady capturing. I think that this price gained’t be utilizing each pixel of your complete sensor.
Relating to steady uncooked stills capturing, it supplies as much as 20fps, which is considerably sooner than the 14fps discovered on the Nikon D6 – as additionally steered by Nikon’s third teaser, launched final week. There doesn’t look like any caveats with this one, so, it could really be 20fps with the mechanical shutter. Nikon has posted two different teasers. Right here’s the primary and right here’s the second.
Proper now, the official announcement is rumoured for October twenty eighth and not one of the rumours at present counsel a value for the upcoming digital camera (but). However we don’t have lengthy to attend now to search out out all the small print.
Replace: I didn’t spot this, however Nikon Rumors did. This video additionally offers us our first actual have a look at the upcoming Nikkor Z 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 S lens.
