Nikon D800 in Digital Cameras

Nikon has announced firmware updates for the D800 and D800E DSLR cameras, and new firmware for all mirrorless cameras along with the UT-1 Communication Unit.

The D800/D800E update includes renamed functions, minor features tweaks and bug fixes. Updated is the following:
  • Custom Setting f13 has been changed to Assign Movie Record Button.
  • With Custom Setting f13 changed to Assign Movie Record Button, Assign MB-D12 AF-ON is now Custom Setting f14.
  • Custom Setting f15: Assign Remote Fn Button has been added.
  • The following functions have been added or renamed when the D800 is used with the Communication Unit UT-1 running firmware Ver. 2.0. A Network (UT-1) option has been added to, and Wireless transmitter has been renamed Wireless transmitter (WT-4) in, the setup menu.
Function that has been added:
  • HTTP server mode - Use to view the pictures on the camera memory card, or to take photographs, from the web browser on a computer or iPhone.
Functions that have been renamed:
  • FTP upload mode (previously Transfer mode (FTP)) - Use to upload photos and movies from camera memory cards, or to upload photos as they are taken, to an ftp server.
  • Image transfer mode (previously Transfer mode (PC)) - Use to upload photos and movies from camera memory cards, or to upload photos as they are taken, to a computer.
  • Camera control mode (previously PC mode) - Use to control the camera from a computer running Camera Control Pro 2 (available separately) and save photos and movies directly to the computer.
  • Support for the updated version of Communication Unit UT-1 firmware has been added.
Important note: To enable support for these functions, Communication Unit UT-1 firmware must be updated to Ver. 2.0 or later, and the Wireless Transmitter Utility must be updated to 1.5.0 or later. When camera firmware is updated, network profiles specified with earlier firmware versions cannot be used.  Network profiles must be created again.
  • Support for CompactFlash memory cards with capacities greater than 128 GB has been added.
  • When AF-ON only was selected for Custom Setting a4 (AF activation) and the AF-ON button was pressed to initiate autofocus during viewfinder photography, focus remained locked even after the user took their finger off the button, and the shutter could be released at any time.  However, specifications have been modified so that the shutter cannot be released under the following conditions if the camera fails to focus.
             - Autofocus mode is set to AF-S (single-servo AF)
             - AF-area mode is set to Single-point AF
             - Custom Setting a2 (AF-S priority selection) is set to Focus
  • When values for 12 or 18 lenses were stored with AF fine-tune > Saved value in the setup menu, only some of the lenses for which values had been stored were displayed under List saved values. This issue has been resolved.
  • When the live view selector was set to live view photography with Custom Setting g4 (Assign shutter button) set to Record movies, a value for preset manual white balance could not be measured. This issue has been resolved.
  • When the built-in flash was set to Commander mode, remote Speedlights sometimes did not fire.  This issue has been resolved.
  • In some rare cases, the memory card access lamp remained lit for longer than usual, and some time was required before any operations could be performed. This issue has been resolved.
Nikon also launched firmware for all mirrorless cameras and the UT-1 Communication Unit. For installation instructions and to find the relevant firmware for your camera, take a look at the Nikon Europe Services and Support page
