Nikon NX Field V1.3
With version 1.3.0, photographers can now use a tablet during Z 9 video recording to check the live view displays of multiple cameras connected to NX Field at the same time. They can also use it to configure camera settings and perform operations. These operations include starting and stopping video recording on a single screen.
What’s more, NX Field version 1.3.0 displays the view from multiple cameras connected to NX Field in the main/secondary view. As a result, it is easier to perform precise operations, such as focusing and focus point selection with video recording.
In addition, the ability to control and check video recording by multiple cameras via a single tablet makes for a more efficient video workflow than was possible with conventional multi-camera recording by a single photographer/videographer or small crew.
Furthermore, support for the Nikon Z 9 now includes new functions that allow the primary camera at hand to take over the control of remote cameras from the current primary camera. It also displays the status of the remote camera connection and the connection between remote cameras and an FTP server in its viewfinder and live view display for increased usability.
Fast and secure FTPS is also supported by the latest update. The types of images that photographers and videographers can upload was also increased. Consequently, the new version enables selection of “JPEG” or “NEF (RAW) + JPEG” according to network conditions.
Nikon also stated that it “will continue to provide updates for NX Field to support professional photographers and imaging creators who are active on the front lines of reporting and capturing decisive moments.”
