Looks like the Olympic shooters will get about a half hour to master it. 😂

2 bodies
one with the current FW the 2nd with the new and improved FW. it isn't all that hard.
lots of ways to play this. i do believe there will be support. remember the 5P's

last winter Olympics had a few new items there under controlled usage.

it won't be an issue for me.

Would the Z8 get this?
Yes, I know, just a rumor right now...

Same boat as R1 shooters I guess 😅.
But realistically Im sure the respective pros covering the Olympics are likely already field testing it now, and hence the leak.

Agreed, I should think that Nikon is working with their select group of shooters to iron out any last-minute niggles with a RC (release candidate) or multiple RCs firmware updates at this point. Heck, with Nikon, er, "on-the-move" post-RED acquisition, they might very well be testing the next iteration of prototypes/candidates of Z9-class hardware and/or sensors, of which I expect global shutter to be their new "high end" norm moving forward.

AF is pretty good. Id like to see Nikon do something with the Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA). Im doubtful it can be done with the current hardware, but it would be a nice addition.

To be fair, there's already been a rumor for 4.5/5.0

The question is...what on earth can they possibly spoil us with this time?! Just about everything on my "I this camera had this" list is present as of 4.1

So far, the Z9 is the ONLY body that Nikon is on the record as having hardware support for it.

Nikon is exhibiting the Nikon Z9 specially equipped with its image provenance function

could just be possible equipped with software aka: function. currently the expeed 7 processor is turning out to be quite capable for programmability.

"firmware update with enhanced AF acquisition coming soon"... I wonder if that'll make it to the Z8

I had just said a week ago to expect a Z9 firmware update soon if it's true that the Z6III got improved AF algorithms.

There hasn't been anyone AF wise since the 4.10 update with Bird SD back in April. The 5.0 update was really just for portrait/wedding shooters with new features.

So this isn't unexpected. I would also assume the Z8 will gets this if not at the same time within a couple months of the Z9.

The only 2 things i really care about at this point is pre-capture in Raw. Even at 20fos in HE* would be 100% acceptable to me. The other thing but less important is 30fps. If course I hope there always slight improvements with AF and SD as we go forward

I have been waiting for 2 may be 3 years now since the first demo'ed

A great feature to get some animals to turn their head toward the camera (may be).

...Show more

A 12 bit open gate codec would make a lot of folk happy.
