Nikon releases Ver. 1.3.0 of the NX Field remote shooting system
Support for video recording with Nikon Z 9
With Ver. 1.3.0, a tablet can also be used with Z 9’s video recording to check the live view displays of multiple cameras that are connected to NX Field at the same time. One can also configure camera settings and perform operations such as starting and stopping video recording with a single screen.
NX Field Ver. 1.3.0 also displays the view from multiple cameras connected to NX Field in main/secondary view, making it easy to perform precise operations such as focusing and selecting focus point with video recording. The ability to control and check video recording by multiple cameras via a single tablet helpfully creates a more efficient workflow.
In addition, support for the Z 9 includes new functions that allow the master camera at hand to take over the control of remote cameras from the current master camera, as well as to display the status of remote camera connection and the connection between remote cameras and FTP server in its viewfinder and live view display for increased usability. Fast and highly secure FTPS is also supported. The types of images that can be uploaded have been increased to enable selection of “JPEG” or “NEF (RAW) + JPEG” in accordance with network conditions.
Nikon will continue to provide updates for NX Field to support those who are active on the front lines of reporting and capturing decisive moments.
