Updating firmware nikon d800
Hi, I updated my D800 to 1.10 yesterday, with very "little soul" about functionality of Sigma 500/4,5 EX, and Tamron 24-70 VR.
And of course Meike grip and many many third party batteries. That last bug got me an annoying number of times: "In some rare cases, the memory card access lamp remained lit for longer than usual, and some time was required before any operations could be performed" Turn it on and the yellow light stays on for what seems forever, especially when you are in a hurry. Finally, proof that the internal commander mode was flakier than a good croissant.
Nikon added a new menu item, custom setting f13, that allows you to add functionality to the movie recording button and use it as another programmable button on the camera. For my own photography, I will be programming f13 so that the movie record button activates shutter speed and aperture lock capability.
This will allow me to lock shutter speed or aperture in order to prevent myself from mistakenly changing it during a shooting event.
For example, quite frequently when I’m photographing sports I find myself accidentally rotating a command dial, which then changes my aperture from something like f/2.8 to f/5.6.
Being able to lock myself out of mistakenly making that change is a welcome update. The next big change to the firmware involves the back button focus capability of camera.
On the other hand, if you chose release priority, then the camera will allow you to take photographs if they were in focus or out of focus.
In the real world you need this capability when shooting sports or studio photography so that your camera settings don’t change in heat of the moment.Nikon also updated firmware for the UT-1 communication unit, two Coolpix models and Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras. IMPORTANT NOTE: To enable support for these functions, Communication Unit UT-1 firmware must be updated to Ver.When camera firmware is updated, network profiles specified with earlier firmware versions cannot be used. Just updated my D800E with this firmware and it appears to have fixed the issue of slow recognition of the camera when tethered to computer (in my case MBPr).2.0 or later, and the Wireless Transmitter Utility must be updated to 1.5.0 or later.
When camera firmware is updated, network profiles specified with earlier firmware versions cannot be used. – When AF-ON only was selected for Custom Setting a4 (AF activation) and the AF-ON button was pressed to initiate autofocus during viewfinder photography, focus remained locked even after the user took their finger off the button, and the shutter could be released at any time.Nikon has released firmware version 1.10 for its full-frame D800/D800E camera.
