Nikon Z6II and Z7II firmware updates version 1.30 released


Nikon released new firmware updates version 1.30 for the Z6II and Z7II mirrorless cameras – here are the details:

Nikon Z6II firmware update version 1.30

  • Portrait impression balance items have been added to the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU and MOVIE SHOOTING MENU.
  • The monitor now shows the shooting display at all times while tilted when On is selected for Image review in the PLAYBACK MENU.
  • Voice memo has been added to the options available for Custom Setting f2 (Custom controls) > Movie record button in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU. In this role, the movie-record button can be used during playback to record and play voice memos up to 60 seconds long.
  • Fixed the following issues:
    • Custom Setting f4 (Aperture lock) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU was not available when an FTZ mount adapter was attached.
    • Although focus would normally remain locked if the AF-ON button was kept pressed while the shutter-release button was used to take a series of pictures, the camera would refocus without input from the AF-ON button if shooting was suspended with:
      • Custom Setting a6 (AF activation) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU set to AF-ON only with Enable selected for Out-of-focus release,
      • Continuous L or Continuous H selected for Release mode,
      • Single AF selected for Focus mode, and
      • Single-point AF selected for AF-area mode.
    • The flash-ready light on SB-5000 flash units would not light if a WR-R10 or WR-R11b was used for wireless remote flash photography.
