    Firmware 1.10 out for D300

    Get it from Nikon. Am I the only D300 user left here?

    Not sure but glad you posted it.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I am an user (or abuser?). Not sure what an update would do for me though.

    Re: Firmware 1.10 out for D300

    Carlos, I still have my D300 and I'm so happy with it that I have no plans right now about upgrading it to one of the very popular FX models.
    In fact I'm not much into photography at all for the moment, I'm sort of taking a break because of too much work on a huge project. Around spring I hope things have changed so that I will again be able to find more spare time for perceiving the world through a viewfinder.
    I wonder what Nikon has revealed by then, though I'm actually a bit tired of the equipment race. All I want is making pictures with some good glass. I don't need the latest and greatest camera technology and I think I will keep my D300 for some years, e.g. I'm sure it will make a perfect cropped sensor camera for birding with a new Nikon AF-S 4/300 VR - hopefully in 2009, please Nikon

    Another D300 user here - actually just replaced my D200 with one (to convert my D200 to IR, since my old IR D70 has gotten flaky).

    Do you know what has been updated in 1.10?

    Re: Firmware 1.10 out for D300

    Here's the list of fixes:

    The following improvements have been made in version 1.10
    - 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.
    - 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 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.
    - Images captured with Rotate tall, in the playback menu, set to On are not automatically rotated for display immediately after capture (image review).
    - A Copyright information item has been added to the setup menu. When Copyright information is enabled, the copyright symbol () is shown in the shooting info display.
    - Recent settings can now be displayed in place of My Menu.
    - Custom Setting e3 Flash cntrl for built-in flash (e3 Optional flash when an optional Speedlight is mounted on the camera) can now be added to My Menu using the Add items option in My Menu from Add items > Custom setting menu > e Bracketing/flash.
    - The degree of the High ISO NR setting can now be confirmed in the shooting info display while the High ISO NR setting item, in the shooting menu, is being applied.
    - Ankara, Riyadh, Kuwait, and Manama have been added to the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu.
    - When a GPS device is used and no heading information is available, ---.-- is now displayed for the Position > Heading option in the GPS item in the setup menu.
    - When shooting in live view mode using Camera Control Pro 2 (Ver. 2.2.0 or later) with a PC-E lens, the aperture setting can now be adjusted from the computer.
    - Focus acquisition performance in dynamic-area AF mode has been improved.
    - Focus acquisition performance with contrast-detect AF has been improved.
    - Auto white balance performance has been improved.
    - The fourth digit in seconds display for GPS latitude and longitude information is now rounded off rather than omitted.
    - The current MB-D10 battery type setting can now be confirmed in the shooting info display when R6 / AA-size batteries are used with the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10.
    - An issue that caused an increase in noise with shooting in [M] exposure mode at a shutter speed setting of bulb with the shutter held open for less than 8 seconds and Long exp. NR enabled has been resolved.
    - An issue that prevented shutter release at the specified shutter speed when no operations were performed for 30 seconds in mirror up mode has been resolved.
    - An issue that caused abnormal image display when Image review was set to On and the playback zoom in button was pressed immediately after shooting at the following settings has been resolved.
    . Image quality: NEF (RAW ) + JPEG
    . NEF (RAW) recording: Lossless compressed or Compressed
    . Image size: S or M
    - When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and the camera recovered from standby mode triggered by the auto meter off function, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved.

    And here is a link to a PDF version.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Carlos. Seems like there are still a few of us (D300 users/abusers) left. Even though I now have a D700, I'm holding on to my D300 -- the APS-C sensor's extra depth of field can be handy sometimes.

    Thanks, Carlos.

    In my case, I've stuck with the D200/D300 series instead of upgrading to the D700 line because I love the smaller size and weight of the DX lenses.
