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.
