Camera Firmware updates can offer new and exciting features that can update your camera and boost performance making it feel brand new, but just as importantly, they can fix issues developed after initial release. 

This is the case with the most recent firmware released by Nikon. It fixes a major issue for 3 of the best Nikon cameras where the camera would not turn on if unused for some time. Nobody wants to go to use their camera after spending some time away, only to realize it doesn't turn on! The Nikon Z5, Nikon Z6 II, and the Nikon Z7 II are the cameras benefiting from the update, and the firmware notes can be seen below:
