Changes from “C” Firmware Version 2.00 to 2.10
  • • [High-frequency flicker reduction] has been added to the roles that can be assigned to camera controls using Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)]. For more information, see the Supplementary Firmware Update Manual.
  • • Autofocus is now better at tracking small subjects.

  • • Fixed an issue that resulted in the camera focusing on the background when [Single-point AF], [Dynamic-area AF (S)], or [Dynamic-area AF (M)] was selected for [AF-area mode], or when [Wide-area AF (C1)] or [Wide-area AF (C2)] was selected with a custom focus-area size of [1×1].
  • • You can now expect better results from vibration reduction during panning shots taken with the camera pointing up or down and an option other than [Off] selected for [Vibration reduction].
  • • Fixed the following issues:
    • – With certain Z mount lenses, choosing [Focus] for Custom Setting a1 [AF-C priority selection] with [Continuous AF] selected for [Focus mode] would sometimes disable the shutter release even when the subject was in focus.
    • – [Aperture lock] could not be selected for Custom Setting f4 [Control lock] in modes M and A when an F mount lens was attached.
    • – Assigning [Recall shooting functions] to a control using Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)] would render [Save current settings] unavailable when an F mount lens equipped with an aperture ring and power contacts was attached.
    • – Auto distortion control would sometimes not be applied to pictures taken with [ON] selected for [Auto distortion control] in the [PHOTO SHOOTING MENU].
    • – The camera would not recognize custom Picture Controls saved to a memory card using the Mac edition of Picture Control Utility 2.

    • ▸ ISO sensitivity was set to a fixed value in mode M,
    • ▸ an option other than [Exposure maintenance off] was selected for Custom Setting b7 [Keep exp. when f/ changes], and
    • ▸ [Recall shooting functions] or [Recall shooting functions (hold)] was assigned to a control using Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)] both with no option (or mode M only) selected for [Shooting mode] and with no check next to any of [Shutter speed], [Aperture], and [ISO sensitivity settings].
    • – When [Recall shooting functions] or [Recall shooting functions (hold)] was assigned to a control using Custom Setting f2 [Custom controls (shooting)], subject detection would not function as expected if the setting for [AF subject detection options] recalled by pressing the control differed from the option currently selected for [AF subject detection options] in the [PHOTO SHOOTING MENU].

    • – Using menu items that offer only ON and OFF options would sometimes corrupt the menu display when a lens that supported Custom Setting a14 (Manual focus ring in AF mode) in the CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU was attached.
    • – The colors in HLG or N-Log would not be correctly adjusted for display in the viewfinder when ON was selected for Custom Setting g8 (View assist) in the CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU.

Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.00 to 1.10

  • • Added support for NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S lenses.
  • • Increased the burst length for dual-format (NEF/RAW + JPEG or JPEG + JPEG) pictures taken at 20 fps in continuous high-speed release mode.
    • “C” firmware version 1.00:
      • – NEF/RAW (high-efficiency★) + JPEG basic (large): Approx. 3 seconds *
      • – JPEG Slot 1 – JPEG Slot 2 (Slot 1: JPEG fine (large); Slot 2: JPEG basic (small)): Approx. 3 seconds *
    • “C” firmware version 1.10:
      • – NEF/RAW (high-efficiency★) + JPEG basic (large): Approx. 8 seconds *
      • – JPEG Slot 1 – JPEG Slot 2 (Slot 1: JPEG fine (large); Slot 2: JPEG basic (small)): Approx. 8 seconds *

    * The length of the burst that can be taken before the frame advance rate drops. Figures are reference values obtained via in-house measurements performed using a NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8 S lens and a ProGrade Digital COBALT 1700R 325GB CFexpress memory card. Burst length will drop in some circumstances, including if:

    • – Backup is selected for Role played by card in Slot 2 or
    • – ON is selected for Auto distortion control.
  • • Options highlighted in the Filtered playback criteria list in the PLAYBACK MENU can now also be selected and deselected by pressing the multi selector right.
  • • Fixed an issue that prevented optional SB-5000 flash units synchronizing with the shutter when all the following conditions were met:
    • – A shutter speed faster than the flash sync speed was selected with 1/200 s (Auto FP) or 1/250 s (Auto FP) chosen for Custom Setting e1 Flash sync speed in the CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU.
    • – The SB-5000 was controlled via radio AWL using an optional WR-R10 or WR-R11a wireless remote controller mounted on the camera.
    • – The flash unit was not mounted on the camera accessory shoe.
  • • Fixed the following issues:
    • – Using menu items that offer only ON and OFF options would sometimes corrupt the menu display when a lens that supported Custom Setting a14 (Manual focus ring in AF mode) in the CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU was attached.
    • – The colors in HLG or N-Log would not be correctly adjusted for display in the viewfinder when ON was selected for Custom Setting g8 (View assist) in the CUSTOM SETTINGS MENU.
