NIKON ANNOUNCES LATEST FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR THE Z 9
Nikon is pleased to announce the release of firmware version 2.10 for its flagship, full-frame mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z 9.
The update introduces a new High-Frequency Flicker Reduction function which, when enabled in photo shooting mode, allows the shutter speed to be fine-tuned in smaller increments. Previously, shutter speeds could be adapted to 1/3 or 1/2 EV, however, the new advancement allows users to adjust shutter speeds to those as small as 1/96* EV.
The ability to adjust shutter speeds more precisely than ever before makes it possible to control the effects of flicker – even when signboards and high-frequency LED lighting are in view whilst shooting.
The update will also improve AF tracking performance, particularly when shooting small subjects – especially those that take up a tiny portion of the frame. Further to this, the focus accuracy has been refined for when eye or face-detection AF is used with continuous-servo AF (AF-C). These updates will help photographers and videographers with more stable shooting.
Nikon continuously strives to meet users’ needs through regular firmware updates, providing useful functions.
* When High-Frequency Flicker Reduction is enabled, shutter speed can be fine-tuned in very small increments at speeds between 1/8000 and 1/30s.
