    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.

    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
