Jan 29th, 2007

Nikon has today announced firmware updates for both the Nikon D80 and Nikon D40 digital SLR.


Nikon D80 Update Information

Modifications enabled and issues addressed with Nikon D80 A and B firmware Ver. 1.0.1

  • The electronic analog exposure display will be displayed in the viewfinder when the brightness of the subject exceeds the range that can be controlled by the D80, whether too bright or too dark, in the following shooting modes:

  • Shutter-priority auto (S) or Aperture-priority auto (A) exposure modes with the built-in flash up

  • Programmed auto (P) exposure mode

  • Effects of processing performed when the Long exp. NR item in the shooting menu is enabled have been improved.

  • When attempting to edit images, which had already been edited using a computer, with options in the Nikon D80ís retouch menu, the camera sometimes froze. Therefore, images that have been edited using a computer can no longer be edited using the D80.

  • Errors in English, Polish, Swedish, and Traditional Chinese menus have been corrected.
