Nikon Z6 & Z7 Firmware Updates

How to update the firmware in a Nikon Z mirrorless camera

Nikon has released updated firmware version C 2.10 for the Z6 and Z7 mirrorless digital cameras. In addition to bug fixes, this firmware update also adds support for the two new DX format Z-mount lenses, the 16-50mm and 50-250mm zooms released with the Nikon Z50 mirrorless camera.

Updating the firmware on a Nikon Z mirrorless camera is fairly straightforward. To do so, you’ll need:

  • A formatted XQD memory card
  • An XQD card reader for your computer
  • A fully charged EN-EL15 battery
  • Nikon firmware update file

After downloading the firmware update, copy the binary (.bin) file to the ROOT (main) directory of the XQD card. Put the card in your camera and navigate to the Firmware Version option in the Z6 or Z7’s SETUP (wrench icon) menu. Follow the on-screen prompts to update your firmware to the current version (currently 2.10).
