Nikon to add Eye AF, Raw video and CFexpress support to Z-series | | Digital Photo Help
Nikon has announced a trio of features under development for its Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras. First is Eye AF, a feature long found on Sony mirrorless cameras, including the a7 III and a7R III against which the Z6 and Z7 compete. Another significant upcoming feature is the ability to output ProRes RAW video to an Atomos Ninja V. This would make the Z6 and Z7 the first stills/video hybrid cameras to support RAW video output, suggesting that Nikon is very serious about competing in the video space. In that context, the just-announced Z6 Filmmaker's Kit with a bundled Ninja V recorder makes a lot of sense. Finally, the company confirmed that support for CFexpress cards is on the way. CFexpress cards are capable of much higher read/write speeds than current XQD media. More detail on all three features will be announced at a later date.
