The Nikon Z 9 is known to be one of the most powerful and versatile cameras in the market for photo taking. Find out how you can leverage its ground-breaking video shooting capabilities to produce content that breaks boundaries.

By now, you would be familiar with the Nikon Z 9, the latest Nikon flagship featuring numerous technologies. On top of having renowned autofocus (AF) scene detection system and fastest still image frame rate of 120 fps, you can also experience the beauty of using the world’s first truly blackout-free electronic viewfinder.

With its ultra-fast frame rate, go from zero to 120 fps with just a click of the shutter, allowing you to capture moments that you might otherwise have missed. To ensure you always nail the shot, the Pre-Release Capture also records the instant right before you snap a photo, meaning eliminating the risk of missing out on hard-to-come-by iconic moments to reaction time.

The Nikon Z 9 isn’t short of innovative features when it comes to immortalising iconic moments. In fact, it is probably one of the best mirrorless cameras available in the market when it comes to photography, but does that mean it sacrifices its video shooting capabilities – absolutely not.

Point #1


Other than its impressive photo taking capabilities, the Nikon Z 9 offers you the freedom to hit record and capture video in:

  • FHD 1080p (24-120 fps)
  • 4K UHD 2160p (24-120fps)
  • 8K UHD 4320p (24-60 fps)

This provides you with the choice to create content best viewed on screens as small as smart phones or as large as projectors or UHD televisions.

To give you with greater flexibility during post-production work, the camera also supports recording in Apple ProRes HQ, Apple ProRes RAW or Nikon N-RAW at 12-bit.

On top of the many different ways and formats you can shoot videos, the Z 9 offers you the freedom every content creator craves for. Whether it is shooting fast action sports or snapping fast-moving wildlife while you are on-the-go, this camera will perform seamlessly with its powerful 5-axis on-sensor Vibration Reduction (VR) system on top of the e-VR. These two functions will prove useful when shooting in tight spaces, where you might not be able to use large and bulky stabilisation equipment for assistance, or when you are shooting in handheld run-and-gun style to catch all the action.

Besides the unique stabilisation technology, when photographing moving subjects such as animals, people, bicycles, trains and planes, the camera uses its breakthrough algorithm, developed using deep learning to automatically detect and track your subject, ensuring that you always keep up. The enhanced Eye AF even tracks the eyes of your subject, differentiating between animal and human with ease, even if they are obstructed by hair, moving or while they are upside down.


With such a powerful camera, you will definitely need a complementary lens to bring out its fullest potential. With the Z 9, you can take your pick from a wide range of wide angle, telephoto, and prime lens available within the NIKKOR Z’s ever-expanding line-up. Coupled with its larger Z mount, NIKKOR Z lenses gather more light, which allows you to shoot comfortably, even in low light environments – offering you countless opportunities to expand your range and hone your craft.

In fact, the latest NIKKOR Z S-Line was developed in pursuit of a higher level of optical performance. Quality is assured as every lens made by Nikon undergoes the strictest of tests and are designed for shooting videos on top of capturing stunning photos.
