So there is no harm in better understanding these cameras or their functionality. The type of image sensors, shooting modes, wireless functionality are some of the specifications that users may be aware of.
Speaking of sensors, sometimes camera manufacturers produce sensors in-house and sometimes borrow them. For example, in 2018, there was a time when Sony took great credit for the quality of its image sensors included in Nikon cameras. There have been reports that Nikon spends a lot of time designing sensors despite Sony making them. There is a dedicated team of sensor engineers who have been working on image sensors from the very beginning. There are cameras that include internal Nikon sensors, including Nikon D4, D5, and D700.
But yes, there are also some cutting edge sensors that Nikon is asking Sony to produce. The company works on the design, and then Sony makes it. Courtesy of Nikon Rumors, the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera has been found to use one of these sensors made by Sony. The code name of the image sensor is Sony IMX309BQJ.
