Yikes! Nikon D3 Firmware v1.10 Causes Problem, Is Recalled

Nikon Logo

Nikon confirms that there is a problem with the D3 Firmware Version 1.10 they just released – it corrupts photos under certain conditions – and promptly pulls the updated firmware from its download site.

According to a Nikon advisory, the problem occurs only when the camera is capturing RAW or RAW + JPEG images, it’s set to record 14-bit NEFs, and the camera is fired at 9 fps. Switching the D3 to 12-bit NEF or slowing the frame rate to 8 fps or less prevents the corruption from occurring, says the advisory.

Nikon boffins are back in the lab busily rewriting a new firmware which may come out at the end of this month.
