New cameras and lenses!

After a long build-up, Nikon has finally launched the Z9 flagship full-frame mirrorless camera with a 45.7MP BSI stacked CMOS sensor and EXPEED 7 processor that the company claims to be 10x faster than the Nikon Z II. Nikon says that the camera is able to achieve fast and accurate AF calculations at up to 120 cycles per second even between frames during continuous shooting. It also received benefits of better colors, broad dynamic range and impressive low light performance with a native ISO range of 64 to 25,600. 

The Z9's body is made of a Magnesium Alloy with an SLR style mirrorless form factor. The camera has a max resolution of 8256 x 5504 and features up to 6-stops of sensor-shift image stabilization and can produce images in JPEG and NEF RAW 14-bit. 

For video, it can record up to 8K at 30fps without crop and up to 4K at 120fps. Nikon claims that the cooling technology is good enough to allow for 8K at 30fps recording continuously for up to 2 hours.

At the back is a tilting 3.2-inch 2.09M dot touch screen and a 3.69M dot electronic viewfinder with 100 percent coverage. The camera is able to capture up to 30fps in continuous drive and it supports 1/200 sec flash sync.

For ports, it features USB-C 3.2 Gen with USB charging, HDMI, microphone-in, and headphone out. It connects wirelessly thru WiFi 2.4GHz and 5GHz and can be remotely controlled via the app. It supports GPS, GLONASS and QZSS.

It uses the EN-EL18dd battery that is rated for 740 shots. The body is weather-sealed with a measurement of 149 x 150 x 91 mm and weighs 1.34Kg.

Nikon has also announced the latest version of its F-mount to Z-mount adapter that offers the same functionality of the original but in a smaller form factor with the removal of the tripod mount.

US price with direct to PHP conversion (no taxes and duties yet):

Nikon FTZ II adapter - USD 249.99 (or around PHP 12.6K)
Nikon Z9 Body only - USD 5499.99 (or around PHP 277.5K)

Both the body and the adapter will be available in the United States within the year. There is no word yet on Philippine pricing and availability.
