This technology enhances the photographer experience with accurate and zero lag reality-to-viewfinder display.
Nikon had mentioned about this Dual-Stream technology to be introduced in Z9. As per Nikon, this new technology was possible because of their stacked CMOS sensor and EXPEED 7 image-processing engine. Their combination allows images to be displayed on the electronic viewfinder and record the image data to memory card in real time.
This new technology ensure “blackout-free” experience. Nikon says, “Unlike conventional blackout-free shooting that displays the same frame to prevent interruption of the finder image, this viewfinder continues to display the actual movement of the subject within the scene, so that every single moment can be smoothly and continuously confirmed with no skipped frames or loss of view.” “Because this is achieved even when continuous shooting is repeated over a short period of time, it is ideal for scenes in which tracking of quickly moving subjects is required, such as during sports, allowing users to reliably capture the finest moments without missing any shutter opportunities.” Nikon further adds, “Dual Stream technology processes data for live view and recording separately and simultaneously which makes this real-time experience a reality.”
The Nikon Z9 has 45.7 megapixel stacked CMOS sensor with 8K video capabilities. It will probably be the first ever full-frame mirrorless camera to be launched without physical shutter. It is scheduled to be available in December.
