With the expectation that the official announcement of the Z9 could come as early as this week, details are leaking rapidly, corroborating many of the details rumored previously, and providing a few juicy new ones. Among those are an expected sensor readout of 4 milliseconds, which is 20 percent faster than the Sony A1, allowing for 1/250th flash sync; but it will not even have a mechanical shutter. That’s a bold move for a flagship camera.
The maximum frame rate appears to be corroborated at 20 frames per second. 8K 60p is confirmed.
Shipping is expected in December, which should follow just a few weeks behind Canon’s EOS R3 “not-a-flagship” release.
