Nikon to release D2X firmware update in autumn
A number of features will be added or updated as described below:
  • HI-0.3 (ISO 1000 equivalent), HI-0.5 (ISO 1100 equivalent) and HI- 0.7 (ISO 1250 equivalent) options will be added between the ISO 800 and HI-1 sensitivity settings.
  • Autofocus subject acquisition and tracking capability will be improved.
  • A "Black-and-white (sRGB)" option will be added to the "Colour mode" settings in the shooting menu.
  • An "Image authentication" option will be added to the setup menu. Note the optional Image Authentication Software is required to verify image authenticity.
  • A "Trim" option will be added to the shooting menu.
  • The "Custom" option in the shooting menu's "Tone compensation" option will be modified so that up to 3 user-defined curves can be downloaded to the camera. An upgrade of Nikon Capture 4 Camera Control is scheduled to support download of 3 curves to the camera. The optional Camera Control Pro software can also be used to download curves to the camera.
  • A "Save/load settings" option will be added to the setup menu.
  • The "Mirror lock-up" option in the setup menu will be modified so that the mirror can be locked in the up position using battery power as well as when using AC adapter power.

  • "Max. sensitivity" and "Min. shutter speed" options will be added to the "ISO auto" item in the Custom Settings menu.
  • The "Maximum shots (Max No. of shots taken in continuous shooting)" option in the Custom Settings menu will be modified to allow a maximum setting of 60 shots.
  • The "FUNC. button" in the Custom Settings menu will be divided into two options: "FUNC. button press" and "FUNC. button + command dials".
  • A "Recent settings" option will be added to the setup menu.
Is the Image Authentication Software compatible with other cameras besides the D2Xs?
Yes. Nikon plans to provide compatibility with the Image Authentication software for the D2X , D2Hs and D200, via firmware updates for these cameras.

The best new feature here is the ability to lock the mirror up for sensor cleaning with needing a mains adaptor.
Yup - the mirror lock-up with battery is nice, after I had to shell-out $75 on an EH-6 AC adapter. :-(

I'll be very pleased if the new B&W mode is non-interpolated, that is, without regard for the color filter array.
