For some time now I have been wondering whether I should try and update the body software assuming nikon issued some.
Neve did it as with me these kind of things always result in problems meaning that I have less of a camera afterwards than before the update.

Is there a need for it and if so where could I find some reviews and user experience stories?

Nikon has a huge data base for UK customers.
There is a 2011 update available. The link below explains what it does, how to download it etc.

Quote:Is there a need for it


The bottom line.....!!!

It costs time and money to produce updates for anything, The very fact that companies go to the bother of spending that time & money, To produce " FREE " updates for their respective products, Should give you a clue.....Grin

ie: If they where not needed, These profit making companies would " NOT " spend the time/resources & more importantly " Money " to provide " Updates " of any kind, Especially when they are giving them away for " Nothing "......Wink

That said any or all updates for anything hard/software wise, Are an option, You are not forced to install them, However its a wise idea to " Read " what the update is addressing, If its aimed at a specific issue, One that you yourself have experienced, Then it might be a good idea to apply the update......Grin


Quote:always result in problems meaning that I have less of a camera afterwards than before the update.


All I can say is read the instructions and follow them to the letter, If your always having issues with updates, You must be doing something wrong.....!!!!!!

Speaking for Canon & Nikon, We have never had any problems with updates provided over the last 10 years......Wink
