A New Nikon arrives, the Z9!

Mark Cruz, Nikon's senior manager for digital cameras and interchangeable lenses joins the podcast this week to discuss Nikon's new flagship camera, the Z9. This new body is significant and different in many ways from its predecessors or even the competition.

Many of the things about these cameras that Nikon fans have come to know, love, and rely on are still there — but with a few “enhancements”. One of those enhancements is a new approach to autofocusing tech that includes the incorporation of artificial intelligence and machine learning to bring a new level of accuracy to an already rock-solid autofocusing system.
