Nikon Z9 Specifications Compared to Canon EOS R3 & Sony a1

By on

Tony Northrup compares the Nikon Z9 specifications with the Canon EOS R3 and Sony A1. The comparison also includes the Canon EOS R5.

Previous rumors said that the Nikon Z9 had a continuous shooting speed of 20 fps, but the latest details shows that it is 30 fps, which is on par with the Sony a1 and Canon EOS R3.

Tony says the Nikon Z9 has advantages over all of these full frame mirrorless cameras. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because Nikon can realize significant advantages by NOT being the leading-edge innovator they have been known to be. By waiting a year or two to release tech, they let Canon and Sony absorb the bulk of the research, development and marketing costs. Check it out!
