The camera of the year just got better.

Z 9 Firmware 2.0

Unlock revolutionary video and
photography upgrades in the Z 9.

12-bit RAW video.

Now you can record pristine 12-bit ProRes RAW HQ or new N-RAW video straight to the Z 9’s memory cards—no external device required. To speed up in-camera playback and edits, a smaller Full HD companion file is created, too.

Introducing N-RAW:
Half the file size.
All the flexibility.

Nikon’s groundbreaking new N-RAW video format packs all the depth and detail of 12-bit RAW video into a file that’s half the size of equivalent ProRes RAW HQ files. Work at increased resolutions, frame rates and bit depths without slowing down your edit.

ProRes RAW HQ.
Workflow optimized.

Firmware 2.0 also unlocks the Z 9’s ability to record 12-bit 4.1K ProRes RAW HQ footage up to 60p in-camera. ProRes RAW HQ makes it easy to move between multiple cameras and editing platforms with a consistent workflow.
