Theme: My first pictures with the Nikon Z9
« on: December 26, 2021, 00:33:36 »
I received the Z9 in late afternoon on Christmas eve. On Christmas day I felt an itch in my hands,  got out for 45 minutes and I took some pictures.
What follows is jpeg out of the camera, with no, or minimal, pp. I bought the Z9 because I shoot, mainly, wild life. My first impressions: I never had a tool like this in my hands, it is my first flagship camera.

Congrats on the new camera. The pictures are beautiful but you would take the same beautiful pictures with your previous camera, I am sure.

Zang, Tim thank you for commenting. Zang, I might, but not with the speed, the ease, and keep rate I can do it with the Z9.

Thank you very much Akira. It is unstoppable. I forgot to mention the lens used, the 500mm PF.
