Nikon Z9: Firmware update 3.00 with improved AF tracking, Hi-Res Zoom for video and more

Nikon Z9: Firmware update 3.00 with improved AF tracking, Hi-Res Zoom for video and more

[11:01 Wed,26.October 2022   by ]    

Nikon has just released a comprehensive firmware update with version number 3.00 for its full-frame flagship Nikon Z9. The approximately 20 new features for video and photo are so comprehensive that Nikon has published an 80-page accompanying PDF in which the individual innovations are described in detail once again.





For video users, the main new features are as follows:

- Added[High-frequency flicker reduction] to the[VIDEO RECORDING MENU].
- Added[Hi-Res Zoom] to the[VIDEO RECORDING MENU].
- Added[Reset using remote] under[Timecode] in the[VIDEO RECORDING MENU].

In addition, a number of autofocus functions have been improved, which should also benefit video users:

- Improved autofocus accuracy.
- Improved low-light autofocus performance, lowering the minimum level of illumination required by 0.5 EV.
- Reduced the sensitivity of[3D-tracking] to objects passing between the subject and the camera.

The new Hi-Res Zoom feature consists of a digital in-camera zoom that is said to work without loss of resolution and is available for both 4K and HD recording. In the accompanying PDF, the new Hi-Res feature reads as follows:

(see also the Nikon video linked above for this).
Here's the complete list of comprehensive new features:

- The playback display now shows the color temperature for pictures taken with[Preset manual] selected for[White balance].
- Options are now available for handling as a group each series of photographs taken in continuous-release modes.
- Added[File info] to the options available under[Playback display options] in the[PLAYBACK MENU].

- Reduced the sensitivity of[3D-tracking] to objects passing between the subject and the camera.
- Improved focus performance when[Animal] is selected for[AF subject detection options] during[3D-tracking].
- Reduced the tendency of the camera to focus on the background during subject detection when[Wide-area AF (S/L/C1/C2)],[3D-tracking], or[Auto-area AF] was selected.
- Focus peaking, electronic rangefinding, and the focus distance indicator are now available when focus is adjusted using the lens focus ring, not only in manual focus mode but in other focus modes as well. In addition, adjustments have been made to the length of time the focus distance indicator is displayed.
- Shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity will now be displayed if exposure is adjusted while the live view display is zoomed in.
- Improved manual focus response in video mode and when silent mode is selected during still photography.
- The shooting display now shows synchronized release connection status. Improvements have also been made to the display in the remote camera list accessed via[Connect to other cameras] >[Remote camera list] in the[NETWORK MENU].
-[Português (PT)] has been added to the languages available via the[Language] item in the[SETUP MENU] for Z 9 cameras sold in Canada and the United States.

Fixed the following issues:

- If (a) AF-S was selected for focus mode, (b) an AF-area mode that supported subject detection was selected via a control to which[AF-area mode + AF-ON] had been assigned using Custom Setting f2[Custom controls (shooting)], and (c) an option other than[Subject detection off] was selected for[AF subject detection options] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU], then pressing the custom control would sometimes fail to activate subject detection.
- If (a) 3D-tracking was selected for AF-area mode, (b) an option other than[Subject detection off] was selected for[AF subject detection options] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU], and (c) the shooting settings recalled via a control to which[Recall shooting functions] or[Recall shooting functions (hold)] was assigned using Custom Setting f2[Custom controls (shooting)] had[3D-tracking] selected for[AF-area mode] and[Subject detection off] chosen for[AF subject detection options], then subject detection would continue during AF-ON after the custom control was pressed.
- If (a) AF-C was selected for focus mode, (b) an option other than[3D-tracking] was selected for AF-area mode, (c) an option other than[Subject detection off] was selected for[AF subject detection options] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU], and (d) the shooting settings recalled via a control to which[Recall shooting functions] or[Recall shooting functions (hold)] was assigned using Custom Setting f2[Custom controls (shooting)] had[3D-tracking] selected for[AF-area mode], then subject detection would not be performed where expected when AF-ON was initiated via the custom control.
- Shutter speeds of 1/320 s to 1/640 s would produce uneven exposure across the frame in pictures taken with SB‑800 flash units using auto FP high-speed sync.
- Choosing a different Custom Settings bank in the[CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU] after selecting a non-default setting for[Auto bracketing] >[Increment] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU] would cause the value for[Auto bracketing] >[Increment] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU] to revert to 1.
- Shooting information would in rare circumstances disappear from the viewfinder.
- Attempting to record 8K video with a NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4S lens attached and an option other than[Off] selected for[Vibration reduction] in the[VIDEO
RECORDING MENU] would sometimes cause the camera to stop responding.
- Tracking small or low-contrast subjects against a solid-color background such as a blue sky would sometimes cause the focus area to move to the top of the display.
- Selecting[C30] or[C120] for release mode when an option other than[Off] was chosen for[Active D-Lighting] in the[PHOTO SHOOTING MENU] would cause monitor or viewfinder brightness to change.
- The camera would in rare circumstances fail to record 8K video correctly.
- In video mode, the camera would fail to increase the aperture (lower the f/-number) after reaching the upper limit for ISO sensitivity in modes P and S if the value selected for[ISO sensitivity settings]>[Maximum sensitivity] in the[VIDEO RECORDING MENU] was below[12800].
