Nikon D6 firmware update version 1.30 released


Nikon released firmware update version 1.30 for the D6 DSLR camera with the following changes:

  • A new option, Keep exp. when f/ changes, has been added to the Custom Settings menu at position b8. When Off is selected for ISO sensitivity settings > Auto ISO sensitivity control in the photo shooting menu in mode M, actions such as switching to a lens with a different aperture range may cause unintended changes to aperture. If an option other than Off is selected for Keep exp. when f/ changes, the camera will adjust shutter speed or ISO sensitivity to maintain exposure at its current value.Other actions to which automatic exposure maintenance applies include:
    • adjusting zoom on lenses that have different values for maximum aperture at maximum and minimum zoom,
    • attaching a teleconverter, and
    • changing the focus distance when a micro lens is attached.
  • Changes have been made to improve the reliability of the autofocus operation.

The new firmware can be downloaded here.
