As well as updating the two full-frame mirrorless cameras, Nikon has also introduced a firmware update for the Nikon Z50 which modifies the camera’s controls when recording self-portraits in movie mode.
Currently, when self-portraits are recorded in Movie mode, the focus mode is locked at AF-S mode. With the update to Ver. 1.10, the focus mode will be locked at AF-F mode. This change improves operation by allowing the camera to maintain focus on the user’s face in movie recording.
Nikon Z50 with 16-50mm Lens: $996.95 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.00 to 1.10
- • Added support for the focus limit switch available on certain Z mount lenses (as of February 12, 2020, only the NIKKOR Z 70–200mm f/2.8 VR S). The lens Fn2 button is not supported.
- • Movie footage shot in self-portrait mode is now filmed using AF-F (full-time autofocus), regardless of the option selected for autofocus mode.
