NIKON RELEASES V. 1.1.0 OF THE NX FIELD REMOTE SHOOTING SYSTEM FOR PROFESSIONAL AGENCIES
Support for Nikon full-frame mirrorless cameras including the Z 7II and Z 6II, and features such as silent photography and Face- and Eye-detection AF
MELVILLE, NY – Nikon is pleased to announce that Ver. 1.1.0 of NX Field, a remote shooting system for professional agencies, has been released today. This update adds support for the Z 7II, Z 6II, Z 7, and Z 6 full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras.1
The support for mirrorless cameras added with Ver. 1.1.0 enables remote operation of the silent shooting function unique to mirrorless cameras. This enables remote cameras to be used even in places and situations that require silent operation, such as concert halls and chess matches. Ver. 1.1.0 also adds support for Face- and Eye-detection AF, featured in Nikon mirrorless cameras, for more reliable focus on the subject’s face and eyes during remote shooting. Further, the focus points positioned throughout a broad area of the frame make it easy to acquire focus on subjects that are positioned at the edges of the frame for more freedom in composing shots.
In addition, NX Field Ver. 1.1.0 adds support for interval timer shooting with both compatible digital SLR and mirrorless cameras. Specifying the shooting interval and number of shots on the remote camera enables automatic shooting, even from a distance.
At the 34th Ryuo Shogi (Japanese Chess) Tournament and the 46th Kisei Go Tournament, Nikon worked with the Yomiuri Shimbun to photograph the matches using NX Field. Silent shooting enabled capture of the most exciting and intense moments in the matches without disrupting the players’ concentration.
Nikon will continue to provide updates for NX Field2 to support professional photographers who are active on the frontlines of reporting and capturing decisive moments.
