Nikon officially announced the previously rumored firmware updated version 1.10 for the Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II mirrorless cameras. The new firmware will be released on February 25. Here are the details (Google translated):

Firmware Ver.1.10 Changes

Firmware Ver. 1.10 supports 4K UHD / 60p * ​​1 when shooting “Z 6 II” movies.
In addition, the pupil AF performance of the “Z 7 II” and “Z 6 II” has improved pupil detection performance. Eyes can be detected even when the person’s face is smaller than before, supporting comfortable and stable shooting.

In addition, “Z 7 II” and “Z 6 II” will be compatible with RAW video output * 3 * 4 to an external recorder * 2 manufactured by Blackmagic Design * 5. You will be able to record * 6 not only with ProRes RAW but also with Blackmagic RAW.

Firmware Ver. 1.10 supports a variety of video recording workflows to meet professional full-scale video production needs.

In addition, for ProRes RAW videos recorded with Atomos’ external recorder “NINJA V”, the ISO settings and color temperature adjustments added in Apple’s Final Cut Pro version 10.4.9 or later are supported. This further expands the range of video editing in Final Cut Pro.

For cameras that have already provided the paid setting service, the RAW video output function to an external recorder made by Blackmagic Design will be enabled only by upgrading to firmware Ver.1.10.

On Nikon CP + 2021 Online, we will introduce explanations and examples with the same firmware upgrade β equipment by delivering the appearance stage of Mr. Koji Ueda and Mr. Hideki Kohno.
