Nikon D500 firmware update version 1.31 released

The D500 DSLR camera is already officially discontinued, but today Nikon released another firmware update for that model:

Nikon D500 Firmware Update Version 1.31:

Fixed an issue that would, when pictures were taken with a flash unit attached, sometimes result in the flash not performing in accordance with the value selected for ISO sensitivity settings > Maximum sensitivity with flash after either of the following operations:

  • Loading settings with Save/load settings > Load settings
  • Switching photo shooting menu banks using Photo shooting menu bank


Performing a firmware update while the camera is affected by this issue will not in itself correct the problem. After performing the update, you will need to either:

  • reset all setting using Reset all settings > Reset, or
  • load previously-saved settings (if available) from the memory card using Save/load settings > Load settings.

Amazon still has a few Nikon D500 listings (mainly grey market and refurbished).
