    Wrong picture of the flash : SB-5000. 😉


    Is this the new Nikon flash design?

    Is flash firmware user upgradeable?

    • Roderick Stewart

      Yes, using the camera. I never knew that until I checked my SB500 manual just now.

    Just so funny. “Issue that occurs in extremely rare circumstances” and then they go on to list the cameras impacted, and it is virtually everyone they’ve made since 2002. LOL Just seems funny to me.

      I think they mean it can affect those cameras, but it is very rare.

    At least my D80 if fine. Not the D40X though.
