After careful consideration and thoroughly reviewing the specs of the recently released Nikon Z9 flagship mirrorless, I have officially taken the plunge and ordered one. I have done several posts on the Z9. One prior to release “Nikon Z9” and the other on the release date itself “Nikon Z9 Released“. In the latter I was on the fence about ordering the Z9 as I already had the Nikon D6 and was very happy with the results produced by that camera.
I don’t randomly order new bodies just for the sake of having new bodies, the camera or gear has to fulfill a need for me and this does base on my style of photography. The increased in FPS was one reason for the switch, but not the only one. I primarily like the 1000 image buffer, the AF down to -8.5 EV and the black out free EVF setting while shooting stills and video. The added bonus was the fact that it is 20% lighter than the D6 and it doubles the megapixels of the D6 which my clients will love.
All around this decision was made with my bottom line in mind and I believe that this camera will pay for itself in a very short time based on the improved specs, picture quality and the ability to capture photos once thought impossible. I am excited to get this in my camera bag.
