Nikon Z Series Firmware Updates:
- Nikon Z 6 + Z 7 Firmware, Version 3.30:
- Adds the Save Focus Position option that allows the current focus position to be saved when the camera is turned off and restored when next turned on
I would be highly surprised if it would even be able to focus on any bird's eyes. It was never supposed to and it was not promised in this FW update. This sort of upgrade would be a major FW upgrade like v3.0 and even then I would doubt it as I firmly believe it requires a different sensor type.So.....the $64,000 question - can the Z7II now track BIF eyes like the R5?
Now that I've installed the firmware upgrade, the focus point works exactly as before I installed it. It also works exactly the same whether the Save Focus menu item is turned on or off. In all cases, the focus point is saved when turning off the camera and then turning it back on again, as an example in the top left corner of the frame. Very puzzling, to say the least.
Turn off the "Save Focus Position" option, focus on an object about 10 feet away, and turn the camera off. Then turn it back on, look through the viewfinder at the same spot, and see if it's still in focus.
