Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 Calibration
Comments on Battery!
From our observations, the battery died part way through calibrating 4 lenses !! Not great battery life at all. We also found even taking extreme care when changing lenses that the sensor became contaminated by the end of the calibration process and thus needed cleaning. The lens mount cavity is large for a mirrorless body and without the shutter box any contaminants will go straight to the sensor.
In May Nikon released Firmware Update 2.0 for the Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 cameras. There is improved low light performance, a few minor tweaks and fixes but most importantly Eye-Detection Autofocus. Sony drove this successful feature so now other manufacturers including Nikon have had to follow suit.
Nikon claims the new Eye-Detection AF feature will detect then focus on the human eyes when using Auto-area AF in both AF-S and AF-C. If there are more than a single pair of eyes you can choose which eye should be focused on. Apparently this feature even works when the selected face to focus on is partially obscured.
Nikon Z6 and Z7 Recall
Early May 2019 Nikon posted a recall for Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras within a specified serial number range.
While Nikon has taken great measures to assure the high quality expected of Nikon products, it has come to our attention that the vibration reduction (VR) feature in some Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 cameras may not function fully. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Nikon has resolved this by making available corrective service for affected Z 6 and Z 7 cameras free of charge, including the cost of shipping an affected Z 6 and Z 7 camera to Nikon as well as its return, even if your Z 6 or Z 7 camera warranty has expired.”
