Nikon launches Z9 camera with 45.7 megapixels

Nikon has officially launched its new flagship mirrorless camera, the Z9, for $5,500, 45.7 megapixels, with 8K video and RAW capture speeds of up to 20 fps. It is the first Nikon camera to use an integrated storage battery sensor that can achieve very high read speeds.

And the company appears to be so convinced of electronic blinds that it has given up on mechanical roller shutters entirely. Therefore, the Z9 is the first high-end professional camera without a mechanical shutter that takes autofocus speed and performance to a new level.

This camera could be the first step towards a large format camera that enhances the computer intelligence that smartphone cameras have been using for many years.

Nikon didn't mention periodic caching for HDR photo photography or smartphones that take up to 9 or 10 photos at a time and combine them with every press of the shutter button. But the basic design of the 45.7MP CMOS sensor hasn't strayed far from cell phone sensors for many years.

This type of architecture uses a limited architecture for sensors, logic boards, and dedicated RAM. This results in a high read speed.

This allows the Z9 to use a permanent electronic shutter with the fastest shutter speed of 1/32000 sec. Fast and continuous shooting.

It can record 20fps in RAW/JPG format at full resolution or 120fps at 11MP, all without sound.

The new Expeed 7 processor and two CFexpress/XQD card slots enable the Z9 to effectively store 1,000 FHD images in compressed RAW files. However, the high readout speed of the stacked sensors could be key to calculating imaging problems.

Nikon's new sensor marks the beginning of a major revolution in photography

It was the first major camera manufacturer to dispense with a mechanical shutter. This puts Nikon one step ahead of the competition in digital photography.

The move to an all-electronic shutter is the camera's next logical evolution. While Nikon has yet to prove that its electronic shutter meets the needs of professional photographers, it still exists.

Until now, camera manufacturers' efforts to achieve computer imagery have been limited to features such as Olympus Live ND and Panasonic's internal focus stack.

Nikon's deep learning system, used in the Z9's new object recognition AF system, improves AF tracking performance. However, mirrorless cameras that take a single shot are still limited by the dynamic range of the sensor.

The new AF system can track a variety of subjects. Including human eyes, face and body. There are also dogs, cats, birds, planes, trains, and bicycles.

Unlike other AI cameras, you don't have to tell it what you're recording. If you set it to automatic (or you can set the target type manually), the camera will detect it.

It also offers a 3D tracking system like that found in Nikon DSLRs.
