Nikon Firmware 3.0.

For those of you photographing with Nikon Z cameras, update your firmware to 3.0 if you haven’t already done so.  There are major autofocus improvements — with respect to both implementation (ease of choosing a subject) and efficacy (ability to “hold on” to a subject).

This update is making me question why I’m holding on to my Nikon D500 for sports… the improvements are that significant.

Well done Nikon!

    I couldn’t agree more. It is challenging, I’m used to back button focus and recompose. I am having to learn a different way of auto focusing. But the camera is so smart, with eye detection and face recognition, that I have to learn to trust the camera more. I’ve been following Monochrome Memoirs on YouTube. He has a great setup and tutorial on how to get the most out of the Z autofocus.

    Awesome! I’m glad you looked into it. He has some solid advice.
