Rumored Nikon Z9/Z8 firmware updates roadmap

I received this Nikon Z9/Z8 firmware roadmap covering the firmware updates that should appear in the future – I am not sure how legitimate this information is, so treat it as a rumor (you are on NikonRumor after all):

  • 45M 30fps RAW continuous shooting.
  • Continuous shooting speed switching. Continuous shooting in the process of C30 mode and C120 mode free switching, JPG recording only.
  • Pre-capture continuous shooting with RAW.
  • C60-FX Burst Shooting Mode. Working at 60fps, each shot is 45M, followed by two shots of 11M in a cyclical loop. Sufficient frame rate to balance high resolution with the possibility of capturing decisive moments.
  • A new log curve extremely close to LogC4, was created for N-RAW to maximize encoder efficiency and record the sensor’s original color space.
  • 8.3K 120fps burst video mode, shooting only 2.5 seconds. It uses the same high-speed readout mode as still photos.
  • Anamorphic Lens Support. Provides FX-format 45Mp Open Gate 3:2 30fps RAW video recording. Supports 1.33x, 1.5x, 1.6x, 1.8x, 2x de-squeezed display function.

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