Nikon releases firmware v2.01 for the D3  
Tuesday, January 20, 2009 | by Rob Galbraith
Nikon has released firmware v2.01 for the D3. The update expands GPS support, implements several minor bug fixes and feature tweaks, promises improved autofocus responsiveness when tracking dark subjects and corrects an instance of black dots appearing in long exposure photos.

More information is in the release notes below. Note that both the A and B versions of the camera's firmware are updated.

Modifications enabled with upgrade of A and B firmware to v.2.01

  • Geodetic information is now displayed in ViewNX 1.2.0 or later and Capture NX 2 2.1.0 or later shooting information for images captured with the GPS Unit GP-1 mounted on the camera.  
  • Autofocus-response performance in focus mode C (Continuous-servo AF mode) with relatively dark subjects has been increased.
  • When the AF-ON button is pressed, the monitor turns off and a focus point can now be selected using the multi selector.  
  • Photo information displayed in full-frame playback has been modified as follows:  
    • HI-, LO- has been changed to Hi, Lo
    • WARM TONE has been changed to WARM FILTER
    • COLOR CUSTOM has been changed to COLOR BALANCE
  • Manamah, displayed in the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu, has been changed to Manama.  
  • An issue that, in extremely rare cases, resulted in noticeable black dots in images captured with Long exp. NR in the shooting menu set to On has been resolved.
  • When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to Distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and then the exposure meters were reactivated or the camera was turned on, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed.  This issue has been resolved.
  • An issue that, in some rare cases, caused images captured with the following lenses to be under-exposed, has been resolved.  
    • AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
    • AF VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED (5.0x)
