New Nikon Z8/Z9 firmware updates rumored to be released soon (new pre-capture in RAW feature?)

New Nikon Z8/Z9 firmware updates are rumored to be released soon – most likely in December. One possible new feature that could be released is “pre-capture in RAW”. Pre-capture for JPG already exists in the Z9:

“How Pre-Release Burst works. Once Pre-Release Burst is set, you can confirm everything is working by looking into your viewfinder. At the bottom of the viewfinder there will be a ‘Pre’ symbol indicating Pre-Release Burst is activated. When you press the shutter half-way down (or press the AF-ON button if you’re set for back button focus), a green dot appears, indicating the camera is buffering images. When you take the shot, one second of images will be recorded before you actually hit the shutter.”

Stay tuned for updates.

Reminder: the Nikon Z8 camera is still now $300 off at Amazon | Adorama | B&H Photo.
