Nikon releases Ver.1.2.0 of the NX Field remote shooting system for professional agencies


The latest update adds support for the acclaimed Z 9

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – 20th April 2022 – Nikon in South Africa is pleased to announce that Ver.1.2.0 of NX Field, the latest version of its remote shooting system for professional agencies, has been released today. This update adds support for the Z 9 full-frame/FX-format mirrorless camera.

Support for the Z 9 added with Ver.1.2.0 enables detection of the world’s largest variety of subject detection types1: people, dogs, cats, birds, bicycles, motorcycles, cars, trains, and airplanes, for more reliable acquisition of the intended subject, even with remote operation. In addition, support for the Z 9’s High-Speed Frame Capture+2 feature that realises the world’s fastest1 frame rate of 120fps enables the remote capture of decisive moments that cannot even be seen with the naked eye.

Furthermore, the Dual-Stream technology built into the Z 9 enables live view display on a smartphone or tablet with very little delay and no freezing during continuous shooting, providing reliable capture of compelling moments with a variety of subjects even with remote operation.

Featuring a body design eliminating the need for a mechanical shutter, the Z 9 enables extremely quiet operation and is therefore useful in situations that demand silent shooting.

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.

1 Among mirrorless cameras available as of October 28, 2021, based on Nikon research.
2 With AF/AE tracking. JPEG normal image quality only. The number of frames that can be shot is lower than that of high-speed continuous shooting. Use of a recommended card is advised. With C30 setting, approx. 45-megapixel images can be shot at 30 fps.
