Nikon has released firmware updates for its Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras that makes it possible to recored external Blackmagic RAW (BRAW) over HDMI to a compatible recorder.
Firmware version 3.20 for both the Z6 and Z7 features two major changes regarding Raw video workflows. The first is that both the Z6 and Z7 can now output Blackmagic Raw video to the Video Assist 5” 12G HDR and Video Assist 7” 12G HDR, released in September 2019. In order to make use of the feature, Z6 and Z7 owners must have purchased the Raw video output upgrade from Nikon, which costs $199 requires the camera(s) to be sent into a Nikon service center.
The second Raw-related change in firmware version 3.20 is that you can now use ISO and Kelvin color temperature Raw controls when editing ProRes Raw video in Final Cut Pro X (version 10.4.9 or later). Other changes in the updates include new support for the Nikkor Z 50mm F1.2 S lens and an array of bug fixes.
Nikon has also released an update for its Nikon Webcam Utility for macOS (version 1.0.1) that adds support for macOS Big Sur version 11 and Apple’s new M1-powered computers.
