Nikon SB-900 Firmware update coming soon

According to a Nikon rep, we should soon see a new firmware update for the SB-900 flash unit. The new firmware is suppose to have a fix for the temperature cut-off problem. This problem was reported on several forums already - basically the thermal cut-off is set too low and the flash can be cut-off when you need it most.

              Mr. Spina – I have not forgotten yet – I am still waiting on the Nikon F7 pictures from your brother. You have the chance to prove us all wrong. Until this happens, no one here will take you seriously.

              And don’t try to send me this

    Good call by Nikon on making the flash firmware-upgradeable. If this problem had been present on the SB-800, they would have to have issued a recall. I still think it was a mistake to discontinue the 800. The feature set between the 600 and the 900 is to similar to justify the extra expense IMO.
