Nikon announced its pro-targeted NX Field Remote Shooting System last year, just prior to the deferred Tokyo 2020 Olympics. And it seems the Big N has timed the software’s latest update – with improved Nikon Z9 functionality – while another worldwide sporting event is in full flow, the World Cup 2022.

The remote shooting system is designed for professional sports and news photographers so they can keep up with the on-pitch, on-court or on-track action by capturing or recording from multiple cameras at the same time. If you’ve ever wondered how incredible goal-line or touch-line moments are immortalised at events like the World Cup or Super Bowl – like Richarlison’s stunning bicycle kick in the group stage against Serbia – a remote-controlled body is often the answer.
