Speculations: the upcoming Nikon Z9 sensor will be made by Tower Semiconductor (former TowerJazz) and not by Sony


I usually do not report on speculation from the Dpreview forums, but this one is interesting and I think it is worth mentioning here – the upcoming Nikon Z9 camera sensor could be produced by Tower Semiconductor (former TowerJazz) and not by Sony. Both threads on Dpreview are very long (see here and here) – here are the main points:

Here is a quote from the original Dpreview forum post:

“Because of these recent, contemporaneous developments, it seems reasonable to conclude that the Z9 will not be an “also ran” mirrorless camera, but a “better than,” new-level offering. It appears Nikon is making a paradigm shift for its future, developing its own sensors completely, utilizing its own innovations, rather than “personalizing” existing Sony sensor design offerings.

While all of this is speculation at this point, admittedly, the evidence does seem to be funneling in this direction. Therefore, the Z9 will quite possibly be another benchmark for Nikon, in a whole new way. If the facts ultimately pan out as speculated, then the advent of the Z9 should be exciting for those utilizing other brands as well.”
