New Nikon Firmware Updates!

  By Ryley Smith

 

A little holiday present from Nikon! New Nikon Z6 & Z7 Firmware 3.20! This new update allows your Z 6/Z 6II or Z 7/Z 7II camera to output ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW footage directly from the image sensor to a compatible external capture device! Get more vibrant colours while transferring and rendering your footage faster!

A little different than your regular firmware update. This one requires you to ship your camera to Nikon with a service fee. It’s super easy though!

  1. Carefully pack and ship your Z 6/Z 6II or Z 7/Z 7II body to Nikon’s Service Department using your preferred carrier.
  2. Nikon will upgrade your camera and perform a free clean and check service within 48 hours of receiving it.
  3. Once the upgrade is complete, you’ll have your camera back within about 3 business days.

Once your camera is back, you will have support for RAW video output as well as support for Blackmagic Design external video recorders!

Are you the proud owner of a Nikon Z6 Filmmaker’s Kit? You can upgrade your camera for free!

For more information, check out Nikon’s website here!

If you already purchased the RAW video output upgrade for your camera, firmware version 3.20 will add support for Blackmagic automatically!
