Today Nikon announced a Nikon d800 Firmware Update. The latest Nikon d800 software upgrade includes the following fixes:
- Support for the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR has been added.
- Subject tracking performance in AF-C (continuous-servo autofocus) autofocus mode with framing using the viewfinder has been improved.
- Gamut for Adobe RGB images displayed in the camera’s monitor has been changed. This enables more vivid display of images.
- With live view photography in [M] (Manual) exposure mode, exposure preview was always on. This issue has been resolved.
- In some very rare cases when certain memory cards were used, movie recording would stop, even when the time remaining display indicated remaining recording time. This issue has been resolved.
- With shooting at an image quality setting of TIFF (RGB) and an image size setting of Small, the right edge of images contained a purple line. This issue has been resolved in the latest d800 firmware.
- In some rare cases, images recorded in JPEG format could not be opened by some software applications. This issue has been resolved.
- In some very rare cases, colors would change with shooting when white balance was set to a specific color temperature, as with Preset manual or Choose color temp. This issue has been resolved.
I downloaded and installed the Nikon d800 Firmware Update without any issue. The download and installation instructions are included on the Nikon site.
