Nikon Z7 Firmware Update Brings Eye AF

Get Nikon Z7 at B&H Photo.

Given the unacceptable hit rate of Panasonic S1R Eye AF, I’m not assuming that Nikon Eye AF is as good as Sony Eye AF. It’s got to have a 95% hit rate on the iris of the eye, not the frustrating “eyelash focus” of the Panasonic S1R.

In general I trust Nikon to take its time to do things right, but I’m in favor of “trust but verify” for companies that have done a reliable job before.

Nikon’s description of the Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 firmware update 2.0 below.

Firmware 2.0: Eye-Detection AF & More

Superior image quality is the foundation of the Nikon Z series. Now, the all-new Firmware 2.0 upgrade builds upon that foundation with key feature enhancements developed in direct response to user feedback. Among the exciting improvements are the highly-anticipated Eye-Detection AF feature for still shooting, improved AF performance in low light and AE tracking capability in continuous high-speed (extended) mode. Firmware 2.0 ushers in the next era of a camera system designed to never stop evolving.

Eye-Detection AF

  • Continuously tracks eyes, even when subjects move within the frame
  • Works in AF-S and AF-C focus modes.
  • Intelligently recognizes the eyes of multiple people in the frame, giving you the freedom to choose which person and eye to focus on.
  • Remains locked on the eyes even when face is partially or temporarily obstructed .
  • Built on a legacy of Nikon autofocus and facial recognition innovations.

Even Better AF Performance in Low Light

  • Faster, more accurate focusing indoors and for night portraits.
  • Reduces the need to switch to Low-Light AF mode to acquire focus.

AE Tracking in Continuous H+ (extended) Shooting

  • Auto Exposure (AE) continues to track in every shot throughout the entire burst sequence
