Major Firmware Upgrade for Nikon Z8

Recommended Posts

Heads up, Z8 shooters! Apparently Nikon has just released firmware 2.0 for the camera, and it's a major upgrade packed with a number of brand-new features that go well beyond those of the Z9. Among the major new features is dedicated "Bird Detect", which presumably will work with fish? 


As you know, @MatthewSullivan and @Alex_Mustard have featured Z8 content on their new Underwater Photography Show. Perhaps they'll make a new video exploring the new features contained in firmware 2.0 and which of them are especially relevant to underwater photographers.


In the meantime, here are a couple of videos exploring the hot-off-the-presses features in the new firmware update:

  • The title was changed to Major Firmware Upgrade for Nikon Z8

I really like the fact that Nikon keeps updating their cameras in such a way for free!


The new firmware introduces the bird detection AF, as well as a new shift mode (up to 180MP) and Auto-Capture features as well as some new options/customization features. Nikon also claims to have improved AF-Performance.


And very important for underwater photographers: we get new shutter sound options 😆
