Z 9 the most powerful Nikon ever.

Go From Zero to 120 fps in the Press of a Shutter.

To capture moments you may never have seen before, the Z 9 captures 45.7-megapixel stills at an action-freezing 30 fps1 and press-ready 11-megapixel stills at an insanely fast 120 fps* — all with full AF and AE performance and no blackout.


*At approx. 11MP image output with High-Speed Frame Capture+ (C120) mode.

Capture Every Angle.

Achieve more with Nikon's first 4-axis vertical and horizontal 8cm touch-sensitive tilting monitor that provides a comfortable and easy shooting experience. Enjoy the ergonomic integrated vertical grip that facilitates easier and more comfortable handling when shooting in portrait or landscape.


An Electronic Shutter You Can Trust.

The electronic shutter in the Z 9 achieves minimal rolling-shutter distortion, eliminating the need for a mechanical shutter. Shoot at shutter speeds up to 1/32,000 second in complete silence, with no shutter vibration and no concerns about shutter wear.

Become Invisible.

When you need to be invisible, Silent Mode turns off menu sounds and VR Lock minimises lens drive noises. And since the Z 9 does not have a mechanical shutter, you can shoot without a shutter click — or plug in headphones so only you can hear the simulated shutter sound.*

*A simulated shutter sound and release timing indicator can be set as desired. 


Pro Build. 

Dual card slots.

High-speed CFexpress Type B for maximum capacity and write speed.


Kensington security slot.

Theft prevention when you need to leave your camera unattended. 


Extended battery life.

Works with EN-EL18 batteries and a new EN-EL18d battery that can handle up to 170 minutes of video recording.*


*Based on CIPA Standards. In "monitor only" mode.

Ready When You Are. 

When shooting in dark environments, quickly and easily locate essential buttons with illuminated icons. Capture as much and as fast as you can with dual card slots that are compatible with CFexpress Type B – which support the fastest writing speed available in memory cards preventing lag-time in critical moments, especially shooting 8K videos or 45MP stills.


Rugged Reliability.

For those seeking adventure, or for those who work in the field, the camera's highly robust body is more than capable to handle general wear and tear while withstanding extreme environment condition of up to -10°C. When the weather turns at a moment's notice, the effective exterior sealing prevents the elements from entering the camera with its dust and drip-resistant performance.

The Z 9 also comes equipped with a new sensor shield that further prevents dust or accidental fingerprints from getting onto the sensor when lenses are being changed.


Go with the Flow.
