Thought this might of some interest to the group.

Nikon D2H firmware (which is use upgradable) V2.0 is now available on line.

http://www.nikon-asia.com/downloadca...?categoryid=38

Issues addressed with firmware version 2.0

1.. Autofocus performance has been improved.
2.. Auto white balance performance has been improved.
3.. A new option, EPS rate + AF, has been added to CSM MENU a1 AF-C mode
priority.
4.. Focus area display in Group dynamic-AF mode has been changed.
5.. The label for CSM MENU a3 has been changed from Group dynamic AF to
Pattern selection in Group Dynamic AF. The options available for this
setting have also been changed.
6.. A new custom setting has been added to the CSM MENU; a4 Disable
Lock-On.
7.. Numbering of some custom settings displayed in the CSM MENU has been
changed.
8.. The labels for some CSM MENU a8 Vertical AF-ON (previously custom
setting a7) options have been changed.
9.. A File name setting has been added to the SHOOTING MENU. This setting
allows the user to change the first three characters in image file names.
10.. The camera now supports CompactFlashT memory cards with a capacity
greater than 4GB.
11.. Support for Exif version 2.21
12.. The ICC profile will not be embedded in JPEG images.
13.. Support for Exif version 2.21 means that a portion of file names for
images captured with II (AdobeRGB) selected from the SHOOTING MENU's Color
mode setting has been changed.

e.g. Image file names recorded as "DSC_0001.jpg" with the old firmware are
now recorded as "_DSC0001.jpg".
14.. Image sensitivity has been added to general Exif tag information.
This makes it possible to verify image sensitivity with software such as
PictureProject, Nikon View, Nikon Capture or other such applications from
which shooting data can be displayed.
15.. A problem which caused the frame rate with continuous shooting to
decrease, even when sensitivity was not controlled automatically with ISO
auto turned On from CSM MENU b1 ISO auto, has been corrected.

With the new firmware, frame rate with continuous shooting decreases only
when sensitivity is controlled automatically. However, even with a
continuous shooting mode of Ch applied, images can be captured at a rate of
approximately 7 frames per second.


16.. The calculation method for image histogram display has been changed.
17.. A portion of the electronic analog exposure display differs when
exposure compensation is applied.
18.. Some changes have been made to the method in which image display is
enlarged with playback zoom.
19.. The image playback zoom ratio has been increased. The image display
can be enlarged up to 30 X (for large size images) or up to 23 X (for medium
size images) with playback zoom.
20.. A limit has been set for the number of times the shutter can be
continuously released when no memory card is inserted in the camera. The
limit is the same number as that selected for CSM MENU d2 C-Mode max. shots.

Hope this helps.

Other firmwares are available here to, D70 for example.

Kind Regards,

Jeff,

Yep thanks for that, I applied my firmware upgrade last week and all is well
(better actually)

It's nice to be able to do internet d/l's and apply these patches to the
camera yourself ie. not have to take into a service centre.
