Nikon Z9 'Dual-Stream' Tech Records and Displays Images with No Lag

It can display and record data simultaneously with no lag.

The Dual-stream technology is part of Nikon’s technology for what it bills as a “real-live” viewfinder experience in the Z9. The company says that the tech is only made possible thanks to the combination of the newly-developed stacked CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 7 image-processing engine, which allows photos to be displayed on the electronic viewfinder or LCD monitor (whichever is being used to monitor capture) as well as record that still-image data to a memory card at the exact same time.

Nikon Unveils the D6 with the 'Most Powerful AF System in Nikon History'

After a development announcement last year and a lackluster teaser campaign, Nikon has finally unveiled their latest flagship full-frame DSLR for sports

At its core, the D6 uses the same 20.8MP resolution full-frame CMOS sensor as its predecessor that maxes out at the same 4K/30p when shooting video, and you won’t find any on-sensor phase detect points for improved Live View capabilities. Instead, the hero-feature of this new camera is the new 105-point all-cross-type AF system that Nikon is calling “the most powerful AF system in Nikon’s history.”
