New Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II Firmware Updates

On 12th July 2023 Nikon announced the release of new firmware update 1.60 for the Z6 II and Z7 II cameras, which introduces several new features and display colours for night shooting.

Just a month after Nikon released firmware updates for the Z9 the brand continues to improve features across their range of mirrorless Z cameras to enhance the user experience with new firmware updates for other models.

Key new features firmware update 1.60 for Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II

When shooting astro photography or other night time content you are able to set the display to RED, which suppresses brightness and helps to preserve night vision. This new option comes in two modes, with one, where everything on the display is changed to red, while in mode two, only the settings information turns red.

Image frame display has also been updated in order for users to choose to display a thin white border in the monitor and EVF, which indicates the area to be captured, making it easier to check the composition of the image. A smaller magnification for the viewfinder (live view) display can now be selected during image playback and video live view.

The new View Mode Setting enables the user to select whether or not the effects of settings remain visible when a flash unit is attached. These settings can be found under view mode, and can be enabled by switching the ‘show effects of settings’ to ‘always: Including the use of flash’. This is optimal for adjusting the exposure of backgrounds and other objects that are not affected by the speedlight.

Additionally, the firmware upgrade further improves the information display in movie recording mode. By introducing a red REC frame indicator in both the viewfinder and monitor during video recording, users are prevented from mis-recording.
