Nikon's New Flagship Mirrorless

/ Categories: My Blog, My Reviews, Reviews

A defining moment occurred @ 08:00 EST on October 28 2021 the Nikon Z9 is here and I am excited to offer my pre-order on this day of 2021 October 28th - I hope to see my Nikon Z9 soon.

Nikon has a true pro-level camera in fit, finish, and performance. The Nikon Z9 is a beautiful camera that embodies our growing Nikon Family - You!

I am a lifelong Nikon customer having had a very nice experience with all my Nikon purchases such as my Nikon Microscope, Nikon Monarch Binoculars, Nikon Cameras, and Nikon Lenses everything from the Mighty Nikon 600mm ED FL to the 8-15mm and almost every lens in between. Not to mention a heap of DSLRs from the D5, D4, D850, D500, D7200, etc and now three Nikon Mirrorless Cameras and most of the Z lenses (except the NOCT). Yes, I am a Nikon user.

Why do I make the statement above? Because I want Nikon to succeed and for Nikon to "resume" a spot for my continued partnership of their products. When I pre-ordered the Nikon Z7 and then received it I was let down by Nikon and mislead through Nikon's Marketing. Nikon is with the Z9 delivering promises in spades and is worth every day I waited for this day to come. Thank You, Nikon!

Can Nikon deliver a new camera before 2022? No! Realistically speaking the Nikon Z9 will not ship en-mass until the late 1st Quarter of 2022.  The best Nikon will be able to do is ship a handful of Z9 to "promoters". I was very surprised at the pricing of the Z9 and was expecting $6K+ but had a pleasant surprise, less than a Nikon Z6.

Historically, this is where I would normally mention all the previous Nikon announcements and their promises, and pre-order delays but what's the point - it will be what it will be. I am just glad Nikon has pulled the Z9 from the camera oven after 3+ years of baking. WoW, what a camera!!!

8K. I don't see too many people sporting 8K screens right about now, but nice for those who use it. Making great video is very important in today's photography market.

Flower Photography

I have a couple of photographic weaknesses, Birds and Flowers.  Whenever I am out doing some photography shooting regardless of what my intentions are if I run across a great-looking flower I stop and take a photo or try to incorporate the flower into my scene. The great thing about flower photography is you really don't need any specialized equipment.  I have even taken flower photos with a fisheye lens. If you want to discover more about flower photography read on...

Nikon 800mm f/6.3 VR S Thoughts and Considerations

The evolving Nikon Z line of cameras and lenses gets more and more complicated when trying to make buying decisions in the Nikon Z Mirrorless ecosystem, which is a good thing. Now the Nikon 800mm PF 6.3 is available to tempt you into the world of Super Telephoto photography. You too may be tempted to take the plunge, considering the closest super-telephoto is over 10k, 7.5 pounds, and has a shorter focal length, the new Nikon 800mm PF F/6.3 might just be the killer lens.

Northern Cardinal - Photography

I am lucky to live in an area that has Northern Cardinals year round to perk up my backyard and when I go out for Bird Watchers day. These medium-sized birds frequent my backyard on a daily basis throughout the year and especially during the colder months when I put out food. Not too pushy at the feeder and shares the feeding areas with smaller birds without any fighting. If there is a perfect backyard bird the Cardinal just might be it.

Improve Focus for a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera

Improve Focus For a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera: When I first reviewed my new Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera two years ago I was somewhat critical of the focus performance in an otherwise excellent camera. Now after 2 years, and several firmware updates I am much happier with my Nikon Z mirrorless cameras for sports and wildlife photography. Why? It starts with understanding Nikon's Focusing system and applying settings for your photography needs.

Nikon Z7 for Landscape Photography

Nikon Z7 For Landscape Photography: I used my Nikon Z7 for a few days of Landscape Photography - It was an amazing experience using the Nikon Z7. Overall it is an excellent camera better suited for landscaped than the mighty D850 - everything you need in a small, portable, lightweight, high-resolution mirrorless camera for your landscape needs.
