When it comes to event photography, all three cameras from Nikon—the Z9, Z8, and Z6II—have their own strengths and can be suitable depending on your specific needs and preferences. Here’s a breakdown of each camera:

  1. Nikon Z9: The Nikon Z9 is Nikon’s flagship mirrorless camera, designed for professional photographers who demand the highest performance. It features a high-resolution full-frame sensor, advanced autofocus system, and impressive burst shooting capabilities. The Z9 offers excellent low-light performance, fast and accurate autofocus tracking, and high-speed continuous shooting. It also has advanced video capabilities, making it a versatile choice for both stills and video work. If you prioritize top-of-the-line performance and have the budget for it, the Z9 would be a great option.
  2. Nikon Z8 : As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, Nikon had not officially released the Z8 camera. It is a high-resolution model, offering a sensor with a very high megapixel count. If you require extremely high-resolution images for your event photography, the Z8 could be a suitable choice, assuming it meets your other requirements.
  3. Nikon Z6II/Z7: These are a more affordable option compared to the Z9 and potentially the Z8. It features a 24.5-megapixel full-frame sensor, solid low-light performance, and an advanced autofocus system. While it may not have the same level of resolution or speed as the Z9, the Z6II offers excellent image quality and a versatile feature set. It can handle a wide range of event photography situations and provides good value for its price.
  4. Ultimately, your choice among these cameras will depend on your budget, specific requirements, and shooting style. If high-resolution and top-tier performance are essential to you, and you have the budget, the Z9 or potentially the Z8 (if available) would be worth considering. If you prefer a more affordable option without compromising on image quality and performance, the Z6II would be a reliable choice
