Nikon has released a 30-second teaser video about their upcoming flagship Z9 Camera. Though, this video, which is an ad video, does not reveal much about any particular feature but if you watch carefully, it does give a glimpse of the rear LCD that might be very unique and different from their previous cameras.
Almost the entire teaser video focusses on photographer and the model being photographed but whenever it shows the camera it shows the rear LCD and how differently it looks and can be used. Nikon putting focus on the rear LCD does raise eyebrows because it seems Nikon wants to send some hint on the uniqueness of the LCD.
Towards the end of the teaser video, it shows the screen can be tilted inwards and this has not been seen earlier in mirrorless camera designs. We still do not know what type of design it will have, but this video brings back memories of the unique design of LCD in Pentax K1 which had a very unusual claw like attachment on the LCD, which was very useful in moving the screen in any direction or angle with single movement.
Nikon had taped up the screen of Z9 at the Tokyo Olympics and probably now we know why.
While the whole world is waiting for this so called beast from Nikon, this ad has created some buzz around it. If reports are to be believed, the Nikon Z9 will feature a stcked CMOS sensor, and it will be able to capture 8K videos. The camera may feature a 45MP sensor. While the whole world is speculating on its features, Nikon has been very discreet with the features. While Nikon has also been silent on the date by when they will announce and share details, it might happen in a month or two. So until then, lets all keep our fingers crossed.
