Nikon Z50 firmware update adds Eye-detection AF for video

Best Nikon cameras for beginners


Nikon has released new firmware for the Nikon Z50 APS-C format mirrorless camera that adds Eye-detection AF capability during video recording.

Nikon Z50 firmware version 2.40 also adds improvements to eye-detection performance for Auto-area AF. What’s more, it boosts the refresh rate for the focus points displayed in live view during subject-tracking and face/eye detection AF.

Nikon Z50 firmware version 2.40 is available to download now from Nikon’s downloadcenter.

Despite now being almost three years old, the camera still ranks as one of the best APS-C cameras in our round-up, owing to its great image quality, small form factor and flexibility as a hybrid camera for both stills and video. For our full verdict, check out our Nikon Z50 review.
