Pre-Record

2. Nikon has no excuse for leaving Pre-Record out of the Z9 Functions - the electronic shutter should make it a doddle to implement, surely.

For some of us shooting wildlife, we know has NO Pre-Record function. This is a powerful feature available already some years ago in RED cameras and very useful for street photography using 8K for stills.

Pre-Record is a very useful feature in Olympus MILCs - at much more affordable RRPs:

If Olympus did this years back, what's wrong with Nikon?

If Nikon offered a pre-record for video function, I'd return to Nikon without a moment's hesitation. Pre-record is an absolutely fabulous feature that is mostly ignored by the industry.
