Nikon Z9 Specifications

Rumored Nikon Z9 Specifications

Tony Northrup compares the specifications of the Nikon Z9 to those of the Canon EOS R3 and Sony A1. The Canon EOS R5 is also included in the comparison.

Previous speculations said that the Nikon Z9 featured a continuous shooting speed of 20 fps, but new information indicates that it is 30 fps, which is comparable to the Sony a1 and Canon EOS R3.

The Nikon Z9, according to Tony, has benefits over all of these full-frame mirrorless cameras. This isn’t always a bad thing because Nikon can get major benefits by not being the cutting-edge innovator that they have been known to be. By delaying the availability of technology for a year or two, they allowed Canon and Sony to absorb the majority of the research, development, and marketing costs.
