  • • This service supplies software that can be used to update the D810 camera “C” firmware to version 1.12. Before proceeding, select Firmware version in the camera SETUP MENU and check the camera firmware version.

Notice
  • • The D810 “C” firmware can be upgraded directly from version 1.00 to version 1.12 with no adverse effects. While updating to this version reduces the bright spots customers have noticed in long exposures, it does require that an imaging adjustment be performed by a Nikon-authorized service representative.
    This update also reduces the bright spots that have been noted in photographs taken with 1.2× selected for image area.
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.11 to 1.12
  • • The WT-7 wireless transmitter is now supported.
  • • Fixed the following issues:
    • - Multiple exposures were not recorded correctly.
    • - Incorrect histograms would be displayed for some images viewed in the RGB histogram display during playback.
    • - If On was selected for Auto distortion control, distortion would appear at the edges of photos taken with NEF (RAW) + JPEG fine selected for Image quality and Medium selected for JPEG/TIFF recording > Image size.
    • - Photos taken immediately after lenses were exchanged would not be recorded at the correct exposure.
    • - The protect icon did not display correctly.
    • - If On was selected for Auto distortion control, the camera would stop responding when the user attempted to take pictures with NEF (RAW) + JPEG fine selected for Image quality, Small selected for NEF (RAW) recording > Image size, and RAW primary - JPEG secondary selected for Secondary slot function.
    • - Shutter speeds for the electronic front-curtain shutter would sometimes be faster than 1/2000 s.
    • - Pictures would sometimes not be recorded.
Changes from Previous Versions
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.10 to 1.11

Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.02 to 1.10
  • • An External recording control option has been added to the HDMI item in the SETUP MENU. If the camera is connected via HDMI to a third-party recorder that supports the Atomos Open Protocol (the Atomos SHOGUN, NINJA2, or NINJA BLADE), selecting On allows camera controls to be used to start and stop recording. More information is available in a supplementary manual.

    Note: Choose an option other than 576p (progressive) or 480p (progressive) for HDMI > Output resolution in the SETUP MENU.

    • - Although the preview button would stop the lens down to maximum aperture when assigned the Preview role, the maximum aperture indicator would not appear in the monitor.
    • - In rare cases, the shutter would not be released when the user attempted to take photographs in movie live view.
    • - About 4 seconds of static could be heard on audio recorded with external HDMI recorders during movie live view.
    • - The shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity displayed in the monitor during movie live view would differ from values in the final movie file.
    • - Volume could sometimes not be adjusted if movies were played with indicators hidden during full-frame playback (None (image only)).
    • - Exposure compensation would fail to produce the desired results if a negative value was selected when NEF (RAW) images were processed using the NEF (RAW) processing option in the RETOUCH MENU.
    • - Images would in rare cases fail to record correctly with HDR (high dynamic range) selected in the SHOOTING MENU.
    • - If On was selected for Exposure smoothing during interval timer photography, every frame after the first would be overexposed.
    • - File numbers were not assigned in the proper sequence.
    • - In some languages, characters or parts of characters would be missing from the SETUP MENU > Location data > Position display.
