Re: New innovations in Z9 compared to Canon R3 and Sony A1?

I think, if anything, it’s more about how things are implemented or working, rather than something that’s on a spec sheet. The recent DPR article about how the Z9 feels the most DSLR-like, or Jared Polin saying that the startup/shutdown time is so much faster than an A1, gives some insights into that.

Some Z9 specs are better than the competition, some are worse. No shutter may be considered innovative, but from what I read, you don’t have to use the shutter on the A1 either. And if you do, you get a 1/400 flash sync speed. Why isn’t that innovative?

I do like the sensor shield. But that’s a separate thing.
