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, people are fed up with your lies already, so keep them for yourself.

    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.
