Testing the Nikon Z9 at High ISO Against the Z6 II and D850

After I bought my Nikon Z6 II a couple of 12 months in the past I discovered it to outperform my Nikon D850 relating to ISO. That was anticipated because it has a decrease decision (24.5MP vs 45.7MP). So now that I’ve bought my 45.7MP Nikon Z9 I believed it could be fascinating to see the way it performs towards each the Nikon D850 and the Nikon Z6 II.

I did 4 exposures with every digital camera, every publicity was 60 seconds lengthy and was taken utilizing ISO 1600, 3200, 6400, and 12800. All of the exposures have been performed at room temperature with lossless RAW 14-bit format. All photographs have been exported by means of the newest model of Adobe Digicam Uncooked with all noise discount turned off. I elevated the publicity compensation with a price of +3 on every picture to make the noise extra seen.
