Nikon has launched a brand new teaser video for the upcoming Nikon Z9 mirrorless digital camera with the title “Z 9 is Coming”, suggesting an announcement could also be imminent. The event of the Nikon flagship was introduced manner again in March with principally zero particulars, besides the identify. In August, alleged specs had been leaked, though how dependable they’re is anyone’s guess.
However now it seems like we could also be near discovering out. The brand new teaser does exhibit a couple of particulars of the brand new digital camera and Nikon has a brand new web page displaying off the teaser and confirming 8K decision functionality.

The video does present us a few issues, although, equivalent to the whole rear facet of the digital camera – and what’s presumably the ultimate button structure. This isn’t the primary time we’ve seen the again of the Z9, as a prototype was claimed to have been seen in Tokyo not too long ago on the Olympics. We are able to see from the rear view of the digital camera within the video, although, that the LCD is just not mounted to it. It’s articulating.

However, earlier than you get too excited and begin speculating an excessive amount of, no, it’s not a flippy out LCD. That is confirmed in one other a part of the video the place it’s clearly proven as a tilting LCD. On the brilliant facet, it tilts each up and down (that’s proven within the video, too). So, it’s not all unhealthy.

This seems to be the primary of 4 teasers, in response to a web page on the Nikon Japan web site, which publicizes this teaser together with a picture suggesting that we should always count on extra.

Precisely how quickly we are able to count on new ones to be launched is unknown. It might be each few days, it may be weekly, it might probably be month-to-month, though it’s anticipated that we’ll hear an announcement for the Nikon Z9 someday earlier than the tip of the 12 months so month-to-month might be unlikely. However that is Nikon, so who is aware of?
