Nikon has launched RAW video output for its Nikon Z6 and Nikon Z7 mirrorless cameras, but that’s not all. Nikon’s US press room has also announced the much-anticipated support of CFexpress cards via firmware upgrade 2.20, although we’re still awaiting an official release for the UK.

The former offers Nikon Z6 and Z7 shooters the ability to output 12-bit RAW to an Atomos Ninja V – the 5.2-inch on-camera monitor and recorder that comes with the Nikon Z6 Essential Movie/Filmmakers kit. This makes the camera behemoth the only manufacturer (currently) to enable RAW video to be output directly from a full-frame mirrorless camera via HDMI.
