    D70 Firmware Update Announcement
    New firmware update further enhances the functionality of 2004's
    Digital SLR Camera of the Year

    TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce a firmware update that
    brings refined performance enhancements to the Nikon D70.

    The rapid pace at which development of digital technologies is proceeding
    inevitably leads to a continual release of new products. In the face of
    this dynamic, Nikon is determined to demonstrate our respect for the many
    customers who purchased a D70 digital SLR camera by delivering, where
    possible, the latest technology that the digital world has to offer through
    firmware updates. The D70 firmware update to be released shortly aims to
    share enhancements developed for the new D70s, and thereby to strengthen
    the performance of the D70.

    The firmware update includes the following additions and refinements:

    - Improved performance for the 5-area autofocus system's Dynamic Area AF
    and Closest Subject Priority Dynamic Area AF modes.
    - Updated menus with a new design similar to that of the D70s, making them
    easier to view and quicker to recognize.
    - Added in-camera page setup support for PictBridge compatible printers.

    Release schedule: Nikon Corporation will release the D70 firmware updater
    worldwide in mid-May 2005.
