Nikon USA press release for Nikon Z6 II/Z7 II firmware update version 1.10


The Google translated version of the press release I posted online last night was horrible – the English version is now available from Nikon USA:

NIKON TO RELEASE Z 7II AND Z 6II MIRRORLESS CAMERA FIRMWARE VER. 1.10 ON FEBRUARY 25

MELVILLE, NY –Nikon Inc. is pleased to announce that firmware Ver. 1.10 for the Z 7II and Z 6II full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras, will be released on February 25.

Firmware Ver. 1.10 will add support for 4K UHD/60p*1 to Z 6II video recording options. Additionally, the performance of Eye-Detection AF on the Z 7II and Z 6II will increase with the update. The eyes of human subjects are detected even when the face of the subject is smaller in the frame than with Ver. 1.00, enabling smoother and more stable shooting.

It will also support RAW video output*2, *3 to Blackmagic Design external recorders*4 *5 for both the Z 7II and Z 6II, enabling recording*6 in Blackmagic RAW format as well as ProRes RAW format.

Firmware Ver. 1.10 supports a variety of video-recording workflows, responding to the advanced video production needs of professionals.

Furthermore, for the ProRes RAW video recorded to the Ninja V external recorder manufactured by Atomos, compatibility with the ISO settings and color temperature controls added to Apple’s Final Cut Pro Version 10.4.9 and later is supported. This expands video editing options when using Final Cut Pro.
