Nikon Z 9 8K60p RAW internal (!) update coming soon

Nikon Z 9 8K60p RAW internal (!) update coming soon

[12:05 Thu,14.April 2022   by ]    

With firmware version 2.0, the Nikon Z 9 gets numerous, professional enhancements for filmmakers, including the option to also record video in RAW at up to 8.3K/60p and 4K/60p Ultra HD with 8K oversampling in-camera. Internal 12-bit RAW recording will be possible with Apple ProRes RAW HQ (up to 4K/60p) or Nikon&s new N-RAW format (up to 8K/60p and 4K/120p).

Nikon Z9

So Nikon is making good on its promise and the Z 9 will indeed become the first and currently only camera to offer internal ProRes RAW recording. The new N-RAW format in turn, which handles data streams up to 8k60p, is not an in-house development by Nikon, but is based on TicoRAW from intoPIX, as previously reported.

Nikon N-RAW

In the new N-RAW format it is possible to work in the following resolutions (this information comes from Nikon USA, so PAL refresh rates should be added in this country):
- 8.3K 60p (8,256×4,644), 24p or 4.1K 120p, 60p, 30p, 24p in full frame / FX mode.
- 3.8K 120p with 2.3x crop, or 5.3K 60p, 30p, 24p with DX (1.5x) crop

The file sizes in N-RAW (.NEV) should each be about half of their ProRes RAW HQ counterparts. During capture, an additional .mp4 proxy file is created for quick previews and the like. The new RAW format can be edited in DaVinci Resolve 17.4.6 as well as in EDIUS X ver.10.3.2; only DaVinci Resolve Studio ver.17.4.6 offers an N-RAW readout in 8K (as of April 14, 2022).

More new video features for the Z 9


Other new features include a waveform monitor, an optional red REC recording frame that can be superimposed, and a custom i-menu. This allows the most important video settings (resolution, frame rate, audio settings, codec, bit depth, HDMI output settings) to be displayed simultaneously on the monitor. Resolution and frame rate can also be checked on the camera&s upper status monitor. ISO can be fine-tuned in 1/6 EV steps, and a Fast AF-ON function allows two different autofocus speeds to be set and accessed via dedicated buttons.



In the photo section, AF settings can be customized with up to 20 selectable, highly specialized metering field patterns after the update, and a higher frame rate (up to 120 fps) can be activated for the electronic viewfinder. Other new features include pre-release capture of images and the ability to recall focus position using multiple buttons on the camera.

Here&s our hands-on test of the Z 9 mirrorless professional system camera, and the lab test of the Z9.

Firmware version 1.4 for the Nikon Z 7II and Z 6II


The Z 7II and Z 6II cameras are also getting a new firmware version (1.4), which should improve autofocus performance by better detecting and focusing on foreground subjects in the center of the frame. Linear manual focus support for select Z lenses also allows filmmakers to reproduce A-to-B focus distance with great accuracy and consistent speed. Both cameras will also be compatible with Nikon&s ML-L7 Bluetooth remote control.

Fast 660GB CFexpress Memory Card Announced

Nikon also announced the new 660GB CFexpress memory card (Type B), which is fully compatible with the Z 9 and designed to meet the demands of continuous high-speed shooting and movie recording at over 8K at high frame rates. It is said to achieve read speeds of up to 1700 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1500 MB/s. Pricing and availability details are only available for the U.S., where the card is scheduled for release in June and will cost around .

The new firmware versions 2.0 for the Z 9 and 1.4 for Z 7II and Z 6II are available in the Nikon Download Center from 04/20/22.
