Well, I finally did it! I am all in with the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera and Z lenses! Yes, I have to admit, I had some trepidation jumping ship and rowing out of the DSLR era. I suppose, I had similar feelings leaving behind my trusted Nikon F series film cameras for the digital format all those years ago. As professionals, we get use to what we know, what works. And that’s a good thing! But Nikon is not a company to rest on its laurels, always moving forward with technological advances in cameras and lenses, which inspire and bring out the best in us as photographers.
I have been shooting with the Nikon Z9 for a few weeks now, and I could not be happier! Transitioning from my beloved Nikon DSLR D850’s was smoother sailing than I would have imagined. While this camera is a dream come true for all types of fast action photography, it also sails right along with any subject of a more or less static nature.
It truly is a ‘camera for all seasons’! The Nikon Z9 has put everything in place to assist the artful photographer in creating images that are only limited by their imagination.
Personally, the window of my imagination has been flung open with the Z9. New, artful possibilities are presenting themselves.
Primarily, as a fine art and travel photographer I now have an amazingly advance tool that will allow me to explore new, creative pathways that had not been open to me before. My photographic ship as set sail for new, uncharted waters . . . and isn’t that wonderful!
In future posts, I will be extolling the tangible features of the Nikon Z9 camera and Z lenses during my shooting forays.
