I never jump in & update straight away, but tend to wait to see if an update is actually needed (eg for the new 800mm lens) but also to make sure there aren't any issues caused because of the updates.

I read on Nikon rumors that some are reporting issues with their third party/non Nikon EN-EL14 batteries, which no longer work since a firmware update.
It also seems to have another knock on effect, which makes it impossible to use genuine Nikon batteries in third party grips on some camera models.

Looks like this could possibly be `rolled out` with any/all models eventually, so might worth checking any updates offered in the future, if you use any third party gear.

Can't blame manufacturers for trying to protect their products though, I suppose.

Carlos, do you know if you can roll back to the previous update, I installed the new up date with nothing wrong with the camera operation. As I use elements the updated version is not supported and now elements will not upload raw files as it used to, maybe a coincidence.

I can get around this by using Nikon's software but it’s a bit of a nuisance.


Cheers

Apparently Nikon does offer older firmwares you can download. Linked on the post itself.

They advice caution though, as there is the possibility of turning your camera into a brick.

Replacing the camera with a possible brick is not an option for me. Although I still have the previous version update file, I’ll stick to what I have and be careful next time. :shock:

Thanks for the info Popo, Carlos.

Cheers
