    Nikon today has announced the Z9, a new full-frame camera featuring a 45.7-megapixel stacked CMOS sensor, a new EXPEED 7 image-processing engine, 8K video with extended recording limits, and the complete elimination of a mechanical shutter.

    The new flagship camera offers Nikon’s most advanced autofocus system with a new scene detection system that has been built on deep learning technology that can also sustain fast continuous shooting bursts and is capable of in-camera 8K video recording for extended periods. The company also says the new Z9 has a sensor scan rate that is so fast it has completely eliminated the need for a traditional mechanical shutter, and so the Z9 does not have one.

    The camera has a rugged body that is designed for a professional workflow with an integrated vertical grip and controls and a magnesium alloy chassis featuring a drip and dust resistant design similar to the Nikon D6 but in a 20% smaller body. This design includes a dual coating on the optical filter that has an electro-conductive coating and fluorine coating to repel dust in front of the sensor, in addition to a sensor shield that protects it when changing lenses.
