.... Nikon rumours are stating 45 Mps for the Z9 ......... using Global shutter tech or a fast mechanical shutter one asks oneself ? ...... with ES as a sort of get out of jail card for situations where camera noise is forbidden ....
....... I hope the Nikon Z9 has 45 Mps ....... it's just what wildlife shooters are looking for ..... it could also prevent the inevitable direct head to head with Canon's R1 if the cameras have the same specs!
Combining a global shutter with 45mp worth of data and a high frame rate will be a bridge too far for a Nikon Z9.
This will be good for Nikon ...... as Canon have to keep down the Mp count to 21 Mps to accommodate the electronics .... while the Z9 will be able to satisfy sports and nature photographers with plenty of spare resolution/pixels for cropping.
