I tried to upgrade my D800E with the new firmware. I waited a few days just to make sure all was well. I charged my battery fully and started updating.
I made however a fatal mistake. I used a wasabi battery. It seems that the new and a transcendant CF card. Both, I read afterwards, not compatible.
I now have a bricked D800E and to make it worse I am in Rio de Janeiro.....not a chance to have it fixed here.
So lesson is:
use Nikon Battery and Sansdisk cards
or you risk getting bricked camera
By the way.... what needs to happen to unbrick it? any one knows?
