    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/downloadcategory.php?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.
