Nikon Releases Z 6 / Z 7 Firmware v. 2.00

From Nikon:
Nikon Z 6 / Z 7 Firmware v.2.00 Changes
  • Added eye-detection AF for use when taking photographs. To enable eye-detection AF, select:
    • AF-S or AF-C for Focus mode in the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU
    • Auto-area AF for AF-area mode in the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU
    • Face and eye detection on for Custom Setting a4 (Auto-area AF face/eye detection) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU
  • Improved autofocus performance for photos and movies shot under low light: -3.5 – 19 EV (low light autofocus -6 – 19 EV) [Z 6] / -2 – 19 EV (low light autofocus -4 – 19 EV) [Z 7], measured in photo mode with single-servo AF (AF-S) at ISO 100 and 20°C with an f/2 lens.
  • The following improvements have been made to the Continuous H (extended) option for Release mode:
    • Not only focus but now also exposure will respond to changes in the subject during shooting
    • The burst shooting display after the memory buffer fills is now easier to read
  • Reduced the length of time the display turns off (the blackout period) when pictures are taken with On or On (monitor only) selected for Image review in the PLAYBACK MENU.
  • Item d5 in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU, formerly Electronic front-curtain shutter, has been renamed Shutter type and offers a choice of Auto, Mechanical shutter, and Electronic front-curtain shutter. If Auto is selected, the camera will automatically choose a shutter type according to shutter speed.
  • Changed the color the focus point turns when the AF-ON button is pressed or the shutter-release button is pressed halfway with Auto-area AF selected and face detection or target tracking active.
  • Edited and revised help text.
  • Fixed the following issues:
    • The camera would stop responding if certain operations were performed while HDMI output was in progress with 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) selected for frame size.
    • The value selected for maximum sensitivity would sometimes be exceeded during movie recording in mode M with On selected for Auto ISO control (mode M) if Active D-Lighting was enabled.
    • The display would sometimes briefly behave unexpectedly in movie mode before or during recording. [Z 7]
    • The items in My Menu would sometimes not display correctly.
