Nikon Z9 Sensor is Made by Sony

Techinsights reported that Nikon Z9 camera image sensor (IMX609AQJ) is made by Sony Semiconductor (a different company from Sony).

“This report presents a device essentials folder (DEF) of the Sony IMX609AQJ full frame 45.7 MP stacked back-illuminated CMOS image sensor from the Nikon Z9 mirrorless camera.”

Nikon Z9 sensor is a high-performance sensor of the same type as the Sony A1 sensor that has both high-speed readout and image quality, and the DxOMark also had the same score as Sony A1, so  this sensor is also a Sony sensor.

Previously, there was information that Sony would not provide the latest high-performance sensors to other companies, and it was speculated that “camera makers using Sony sensors can not surpass Sony’s camera in performance”.  This seems to have been a melancholy.
