TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2022
Nikon Z 9
Combine the instincts and reflexes of a pro photographer with the imaging tools available in the Nikon Z 9 and you have a combination that’s hard to beat. Delivering 45.7MP stills via its Stacked CMOS sensor, images hold up even when cropped, making it an ideal camera for wildlife, landscape and portraiture work. One major design change of great interest to TIPA members is the elimination of a mechanical shutter, which makes this a very fast camera, with up to 30 fps shooting in JPEG and 20 in Raw, plus it can buffer up to an incredible 1000 RAW images in a burst. A wide variety of resolutions and frame rates, including 8K/30p video for a bit over two hour continuous shooting time, makes it a very viable video camera as well. Numerous firmware updates, such as 12-bit Raw 8K/60 in-camera capability, will continue to add to this camera’s appeal.
