Nikon releases Ver. 1.1.0 of the NX Field remote shooting system for professional photographers and agencies

London, United Kingdom, 17th February 2022: Nikon is pleased to announce that Ver. 1.1.0 of NX Field, a remote shooting system for professional photographers and news & sports 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*. Support for the Z 9 will be added in a future firmware update.

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. Furthermore, 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.

Nikon will continue to provide updates for NX Field to support professional photographers who are active on the frontlines of reporting and capturing decisive moments.

*WT-7 wireless transmitters must be connected to cameras for use with the NX Field system.
