A piece of hardware can always be improved in this day and age with the release of better software, or firmware as some others prefer to call it. Nikon Corporation then is pleased as punch to announce that it is right now working on new firmware for its Nikon D4S, Nikon D810, and Nikon D750 digital SLR cameras, where this particular new firmware will deliver support for recording command function with HDMI output to external recorders. As for the exact date as to when Nikon will roll out the new firmware, it has been set for some time later this summer.
When the new firmware is released, it will pave the way for the synchronization of recording start/stop with HDMI output from the D4S, D810, and D750. Since this would mean that video recorders will then recognize camera operations, recording start/stop commands of the external recorder can be set to have it synchronize with recording start/stop commands of the camera.
The new firmware will also deliver a greater level of support for recording of high-definition, uncompressed data which would maximize the superior resolution of the D4S, D810, and D750, as well as take full advantage of the excellent rendering performance of NIKKOR lenses, to external recorders. Blockbuster movies aren’t all there are to look forward to in the summer, you know, as firmware releases such as these would also excite a totally different niche market. [Press Release]
