Nikon announces new firmware Ver. 2.0 for better imaging experience of the Nikon Z7 and Z6

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:

 

  • Eye-Detection AF with still-image shooting;
  • Extension of the low-light AF detection range;
  • Addition of AE tracking capability to the continuous high-speed (extended) mode.

 

These enhanced shooting functions will further expand the possibilities for visual expression.

 

 

Primary features of the new Firmware

 

  1. Eye-Detection AF with still-image shooting

 

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.

  1. Improvement AF performance improvements in low-light situations

 

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.

 

  1. AE tracking in continuous high-speed (extended) mode

 

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.
