Nikon D5 firmware update version 1.30 released


Nikon released firmware update version 1.30 for the Nikon D5 DSLR camera (I reported about it yesterday on social media: Facebook, Twitter and Google+). The new firmware can be downloaded from Nikon's website. Here is the changelog:

  • Added Recall shooting functions to the functions that can be assigned to camera controls. Holding the selected control recalls previously-saved exposure settings (including shutter speed and aperture), a feature that can for example be used to switch rapidly between scenes that require different exposures.

Recall shooting functions can be assigned to the following controls using Custom Setting f1 (Custom control assignment): Preview button, Fn1 button, Fn2 button, AF-ON button, Sub-selector center, AF-ON button for vertical shooting, and Lens focus function buttons. It can also be assigned to the Fn button on a WR-1 or WR-T10 remote control using the Assign remote (WR) Fn button option in the SETUP MENU.

For more information, see the addenda to the User’s Manual available from the Nikon Download Center (Nikon Download Center > D5 > Manuals > Supplementary Firmware Update Manual).

  • Fixed the following issues:
    • If Backup or RAW Slot 1 - JPEG Slot 2 was selected for PHOTO SHOOTING MENU > Role played by card in Slot 2 in http server mode, the shutter would sometimes not be released during burst shooting.
    • Reactivating the standby timer would sometimes fail to re-establish the link between the camera and some makes of mobile router connected via Ethernet cable (Prioritize power saving selected for SETUP MENU > Network > Options > Power saving).
  • The focal lengths displayed when teleconverters for AF-S or AF-I lenses are attached have been updated as follows:
    Lens focal length Teleconverter Before update After update
    400 mm 1.4× 550 mm 560 mm
    400 mm 1.7× 650 mm 680 mm
    800 mm 1.4× 1150 mm 1120 mm
    800 mm 1.7× 1350 mm 1360 mm

The focal length displays for some combinations of lenses and teleconverters may differ from those given above.

  • The SETUP MENU > Time zone and date > Time zone display now shows only the names of major cities in the currently selected zone.
