Firmware 2.0: Eye-Detection AF & More

Superior image quality is the foundation of the Nikon Z series. Now, the all-new Firmware 2.0 upgrade builds upon that foundation with key feature enhancements developed in direct response to user feedback. Among the exciting improvements are the highly-anticipated Eye-Detection AF feature for still shooting, improved AF performance in low light and AE tracking capability in continuous high-speed (extended) mode. Firmware 2.0 ushers in the next era of a camera system designed to never stop evolving.

Available now for the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7

Eye-Detection AF

  • Continuously tracks eyes, even when subjects move within the frame
  • Works in AF-S and AF-C focus modes
  • Intelligently recognizes the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on
  • Remains locked on the eyes even when face is partially or temporarily obstructed
  • Built on a legacy of Nikon autofocus and facial recognition innovations

Even Better AF Performance in Low Light

  • Faster, more accurate focusing indoors and for night portraits
  • Reduces the need to switch to Low-Light AF mode to acquire focus

AE Tracking in Continuous H+ (extended) Shooting
