After the last Nikon D3 firmware fiasco, Nikon is not taking any chances and has finally released a new firmware update for the D3. As expected the new update fixes the photo corruption problem, which was experienced by a number of Nikon users.

The following improvements have been made in version 1.10.

  • A Vignette control item has been added to the shooting menu. For information regarding supported lenses, see the supplemental manual.

  • A Focus point brightness item has been added to the a6: Focus point illumination setting in the Autofocus category of 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 with shooting in live view 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 1/250–1 s to 1/4000–1 s.

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

  • When shooting in hand-held live view 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, the image area visible through the viewfinder and the image area actually recorded differed when Image area>Choose image area in the shooting menu was set to DX format (24x16). This issue has been resolved.
