Setting Up the Nikon Z9 Menus

Nikon Z9 how to set up menus custom settings tips tricks

The flagship mirrorless Nikon Z9 offers far more menu items and customization options than most previous cameras in the Z line-up, and they continue to be updated and expanded with firmware updates. In order to take full advantage of this sophisticated camera, you are going to need to dig into the Menus and Custom Settings, and set up the camera to work best for how you shoot and for the type of situations you are shooting.

To assist you with this, I have created a detailed and comprehensive Nikon Z9 Menu Setup Spreadsheet, which lists suggested settings and starting points for the Photo Shooting Menu and the Custom Settings. It has complete and separate camera setup recommendations for different types of shooting, including:

General / Travel / Street
Landscape / Architecture
Action / Sports
Moving Wildlife / Birds
Studio / Portraits
Concert / Performance

The Nikon Z9 Setup Spreadsheet has been updated for Firmware 5.0. It can be downloaded from my website here. Printing instructions are also included on that page.

For explanations of all the menu items, controls, features, functions, and autofocus system of the Z9, have a look at my clear and comprehensive guide for the Nikon Z8, Nikon Z8 Experience. While I don’t yet offer a Z9 guide, the functions, features, autofocus system, menus, and custom settings of the Z9 and the Z8 are nearly identical. This user-friendly guide will help you to take control of your camera, and the images you create. Learn more about it and purchase it at my website here:

What Readers of Nikon D7000 Experience are Saying:

It’s the first guide I’ve read which has taken me through all the settings in an understandable way. I now feel that I have control over the camera.
-Peter S.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a quick start to using the D7000.  Manuals are nice, but this eBook highlights the important information and gives a quick easy to understand explanation of most all of the functions and controls.
-Ray M.

This manual is a clearly written, concise and useful explanation of the rationale for the seemingly infinite and often confusing settings options for the D7000. Used in conjunction with the Nikon manual I feel a bit more confident in understanding how to at last proceed in getting better photographs.
-WLS

I found the Nikon manual good for understanding how to set things up but not much on the why – this book really focuses on the “why.”
-Benoit A.

This book, together with the manual that came with your camera, is all you need to start discovering the full potential of the D7000.
-Max M.

It’s clear, concise and gets to the heart of the camera’s multiple and often confusing options. Very highly recommended – for experienced user and beginner alike.  As previous reviewers have remarked, the official manual is very good on what to do, but not so clear on why.
-GSA
