Nikon releases firmware update for D3

If you are using the Nikon D3 for shooting office or personal photos, you should be aware that there is a firmware update available. Thanks to the Crunchgear team for digging up the details:

Here’s what the latest firmware will do for your D3. Be sure to upgrade both A and B.

A “Vignette Control” item has been added to the ” Shooting Menu”.

A focus point brightness item has been added to the “a6: Focus point illumination” setting in the “Autofocus” category in the ” Custom Settings”.

The ” Highlights” playback display option has been moved from “Display mode > Basic photo info > Highlights” in the playback menu to “Display Mode > Detailed photo info > Highlights”.

When shutter speed and/or aperture are locked when shooting in LiveView mode, using the “L” (command lock) button, an “L” icon is now displayed in the camera monitor.

The size and color of “Demo” displayed in the monitor with playback, when “No memory card?” in the “Custom Settings” is set to “Enable Release”, have been modified.

The range of settings available for “ISO sensitivity settings > ISO sensitivity auto control > Minimum shutter speed” in the Shooting Menu has been increased from 1/250th - 1s to 1/4000s - 1s.

When a compatible Speedlight or Wireless Speedlight Commander is used, the AF assist illuminator now lights regardless of focal length.

When shooting in hand-held LiveView mode and the frame is magnified prior to autofocusing, operation has been modified so that display returns to the magnified display rather than full-frame display.

In some rare cases, white balance was not accurately calculated for images captured at a shutter speed of around 1/4s in P and A exposure modes. This issue has been resolved.

When attempting to crop images at an aspect ratio of 4:3 using the “Trim” option in the “Retouch” menu, the cropped image did not have an accurate 4:3 aspect ratio. This issue has been resolved.

Windows update.
Mac update.
