The new firmware brings further improvements, including the addition of Eye-Detection AF, to the Z series full-frame mirrorless cameras
New Delhi: Nikon India, 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation, leaders in imaging technology, is pleased to announce the release of firmware Ver. 2.0 that will further enhance the performance of its full-frame mirrorless cameras, the Nikon Z 7 and Z 6.
Users will enjoy three main additional support features following the Ver. 2.0 upgrade, which includes:
These enhanced shooting functions will further expand the possibilities for visual expression.
Primary features of the new Firmware
The new firmware offers the Eye-Detection AF function that automatically detects and focuses on human eyes in the auto-area AF (AF-S, AF-C) mode. When the eyes of multiple human subjects are detected, the multi-selector or sub-selector can be used to select the eye upon which the camera should focus. This enables focus on the intended individual even when looking through the Electronic Viewfinder. This function is applicable even when the subject’s face is partially covered by another object, and also in the event when human subjects frequently change their pose. Once the photo is taken, the user can directly zoom in on the eye by pressing the ‘OK’ button and easily verify it is indeed in focus.
The new firmware enables even faster autofocusing when capturing dark or dimly lit scenes in stills and videos. It will extend the low-light AF detection range down from −1 EV to −2 EV with the Z 7, and from −2 EV to −3.5 EV with the Z 6. In addition, the Z 6 will be able to autofocus with even darker scenes, as the available low-light AF detection range1 will be extended from −4 EV to −6 EV.
With earlier firmware versions, auto exposure was locked with the first shot in a burst of high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 9 fps (Z 7) or 12 fps (Z 6) in continuous high-speed (extended) mode. Firmware Ver. 2.0, however, adds support for AE tracking in continuous high-speed (extended) mode, allowing the cameras to track exposure just as it does focus (AF tracking). This ensures that all images captured with a burst of high-speed continuous shooting are in focus and exhibit optimal exposure, even when the brightness of the scene changes.
The new firmware can be downloaded (free of charge) from Nikon’s Download Center at the following link:
Users will be prompted to follow the instructions provided to successfully install the firmware.
Nikon will continue to flexibly respond to the evolving needs of our users, and offer next-generation imaging experiences that foster creativity.
