Pole Cat: Meanwhile

AV PRO CFexpress SE Type B Card 512 GB
Read Speed: 1785 Megabytes Per Second

$179 on Amazon

So its about 6 times faster than the card in the article and less than 1/2 the price. Its also not made mostly of cheap plastic.

I have never found SD cards to be very reliable. The little write protect switch is always breaking and the cheap plastic cases split on me more than once.

its a great pus for SD cards that they are so universally used. There is no Canon RF or Sony camera that cant take an SD card. For those use cases where you have need for more data speed then you can use the CF express cards instead in same camera.
Even laptops take the SD cards.

Steve Balcombe: It's great that options like this are becoming available, but I recently bought an Angelbird AV Pro SE 512 GB card for less than half that price. It's considered 'slow' for a CFexpress card, but at 800 MB/s sustained write speed it's several times faster than these V90 SDXC cards.

Here's a wild thought: Maybe professionals can use SD cards!?

R3, R5, R6, Z7ii, Z6ii all have a card slot for SD cards only. So for any professional use with redundancy, or for anyone who wants to use the two card slot they payed for, then they are down to SD card speed and cost.
How can that be ok?

How on earth do cameras like R3, R5, R6, Z7ii, Z6ii survive with an SD card only slot?

Cameras with dual CF Express cards tend to be supersized, just look at the Z9. Possibly with exception of newer Sony cameras who manage double CF Express cards in a more compact camera.

On article Nikon Z9 review: a DSLR-like stills/video monster (3185 comments in total)
In reply to:

Steppenw0lf: When I read the description I get the impression photography was very antiquated and hardly possible before this latest generation of cameras.
In reality I know this is not the case. The improvements are there, but photography has not done a big jump forward.
So this is all just hot air and I wonder what the writers will think about their writings after a few months. (If they will then see how ridiculous this blabla is/was.)

I wonder how much of this will turn into market value, meaning how many of these cameras will be sold. And will these cameras survive or get more and more eclipsed by mobile phones ?

Which photographer needs all these expensive features ? How many have enough of the hype and turn simply to “simpler” technology ? We will soon see...

Who cares if the Z9, A1 or R3 are best ? I don’t.

1.34kg is a heavy camera regardless if you held the Z9 or not.

Does anyone think the R3 is too light so you need to add more than 300g of extra plastic to it?

Just need an FX3 now ...

steelhead3: Good showing Nikon, almost as good as the A1. Now lets see some lenses, making use of that over sized throat.

its not so good by Z9 to arrive one year after A1 and provide worse performance. Given its large size and being a newer product the Z9 should provide better performance.

nice article, and seems to be a nice camera!

davev8: no mention of any thing for Z and R mount

You just stated the FE sales and Canon ML sales, and then you ask me?
The Canon ML sales volume is split between M-mount and RF mount. M-mount has sold large volumes, meaning ...

Most of that was M-mount. As previously discussed, M-mount is irrelevant.
So yes, Canon R has small sales volumes so far.

davev8: no mention of any thing for Z and R mount

its very simple, they are business case driven. It is simply not profitable to develop and produce lenses for a mount with small volumes sold. They cant recap the cost. Its like with A-mount 15-20 years ago - Sigma, Tamron, and others only adapted a selection of their CaNikon lenses to A-mount.
And its not 3rd parties fault that CaNikon dont license the protocols to them. You should whine to CaNikon.

Maybe there should be a conselation prize for unsuccesful mounts?

"Tamron has so many orders for the 35-150 f/2-2.8 that they cannot fill them."

Exactly. The sales volumes for e-mount are big.

Z and RF have smaller sales volumes and they obstruct regarding mount protocols. It would help them a lot if they at least opened up.

Thats it.

Ying Yon: Same resolution as Canon R6, but twice the speed. Not bad!

sure, Canon never had and probably never will have the best sensors, not the fastest and not the best dynamic range. But they can prvide decent sensors. R6 though has really low res for a camera in its class.

Sorry Francis, they do not sell the same volumes between E-mount, Z-mount and RF-mount now, not even close. And they certainley didnt do it for the past decade, so the agregated volume differs even more. This agregated volume of cameras in each ML mount is the adressable market for the 3rd party lens developers.

So Francis, given your theory that Z mount sells so much, I am curious to hear what is your explanation the 3rd party lens developers neglect RF and Z- mount?
