The latest firmware introduces a new High-Frequency Flicker Reduction function for precise shutter speed adjustments
MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA – Nikon Middle East FZE. is pleased to announce the release of firmware version 2.10 for its full-frame/FX-format mirrorless camera, the Nikon Z 9.
Firmware version 2.10 introduces a new High-Frequency Flicker Reduction function. When High-Frequency Flicker Reduction is enabled in photo shooting mode, the shutter speed can be fine-tuned in increments from the normal 1/3 or 1/2 EV to those as small as 1/96* EV. The ability offered by this new function to adjust shutter speed more precisely than ever before makes it possible to suppress the effects of flicker, even when signboards and lighting that use high-frequency LEDs are included in the angle of view with shooting.
Several autofocus (AF) modes have also been improved, increasing AF tracking performance with small subjects (those that take up a very small portion of the frame) as well as focus accuracy when eye/face-detection AF is used with continuous-servo AF (AF-C). These improvements realise further ensuring and more stable shooting.
Nikon will continuously meet users' needs through timely updates of firmware versions with various useful functions.
* When [High-frequency flicker reduction] is enabled, shutter speed can be fine-tuned in very small increments at speeds between 1/8000s and 1/30s.
