Firmware Updates Issued for Nikon D750 and Nikon D4S

While these firmware updates for the Nikon D750 (version 1.10) and the Nikon D4S (version 1.30) are not necessarily critical for most users, it’s always a good idea to keep your camera’s firmware up to date. And, if you use a third-party external recorder that supports the Atomos Open Protocol, you’ll be happy to know that a new feature included in the firmware update enables users of both the D750 and D4S to start/stop recording directly from camera controls. A number of bug fixes have been addressed in this firmware as well, although some are reminiscent of the movie title, “If it’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium” since the issues only occur under certain, very specific conditions. Of note for D750 users is the promise that the firmware update provides “optimal vibration reduction” when using VR lenses. For more details, see the lists below or visit the Nikon site to download the firmware.
