CFexpress Memory Card Support: Updating Z 7 and Z 6 firmware to Ver. 2.20 enables the use of CFexpress memory cards, which has a similar form factor to XQD, eliminating the need to physically modify the Nikon camera or its memory card slot. After upgrading, users will be able to use CFexpress as well as XQD cards in their camera interchangeably.
The firmware update Ver. 2.20 which enables CFexpress compatibility is available now, free of charge. Please visit the Nikon Z series firmware update page to download and find more information.
RAW Video Output Function (4K UHD and Full HD): With this upgrade, 12-bit 4K UHD or full-HD RAW video can be recorded to select models of Atomos video recorders connected to a Nikon Z 7 or Z 6 camera via a HDMI connector. As RAW video is not subjected to in-camera processing, all information that is outputted from the image sensor is preserved and can be used later in post-production. The RAW video output upgrade is available now and will require installation by a Nikon Service Center, plus an $199.95 fee will apply.
