DPReview had the chance to interview Keiji Oishi, Department Manager of Nikon’s Imaging Business Unit, UX Planning Department. Mr. Oishi has confirmed that new nikon flagship 8K mirrorless camera (Nikon Z9?) with a high-resolution stacked sensor is coming later this year.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

A flagship Nikon Z-series mirrorless camera can be expected within the year, and is being developed with the goal of surpassing the D6. It will respond to the advanced needs of professionals. The upcoming model will debut a newly developed high-resolution stacked CMOS sensor. While this camera will be a major technological leap for still photographers of a wide variety of genres, our engineers are considering powerful video features such as 8K that respond to the needs of all kinds of content creators and professionals.

The next goal is to develop lenses with a focus on more compactness and affordability, [and] make our lenses more accessible to more people.

We welcome the increasing demand for video we have been seeing recently
