Notice

  • • Before proceeding with the update, users of Lexar 400× and 1000× CompactFlash® memory cards will need to follow the steps here to check compatibility.
  • • Do not attempt to load settings saved using Save/load settings for firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier onto a D4 with “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10 or later. Settings saved with firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier are not compatible with D4 “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10 or later.
Changes from “A”/“B” Firmware Version 1.10 to Version 1.11
  • • Added the following supports for AF-P lenses:
    • - If the standby timer expires after focusing, the focus position will no longer change when the timer is reactivated.
    • - When focus is adjusted by rotating the lens focus ring, the focus indicator in the viewfinder (and in live view, the focus point in the monitor) now flash to indicate when infinity or the minimum focus distance is reached.
  • • Added support for AF-P DX lenses.
  • • Fixed the following issue:
    • - When photos were taken using Camera Control Pro 2 after Custom Setting d10 (Exposure delay mode) was enabled in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU, the software would sometimes mistakenly display a message stating that no photo could be taken.
Changes from Previous Versions
Changes from Firmware “A” Version 1.05/“B” Version 1.03 to “A”/“B” Version 1.10
  • • Added an Assign remote Fn button option at Position f17 in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.
  • • Added support for CompactFlash memory cards with capacities over 128 GB.
  • • If the AF-ON button is used to focus during viewfinder photography when AF-ON only is selected for Custom Setting a4 (AF activation) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU, focus will remain locked when the button is released. Previously the shutter could then be released at any time, but under the following conditions this behavior has been changed so that the shutter will not be released if the camera is unable to focus:
    • - AF-S is selected for AF mode
    • - Single-point AF is selected for AF-area mode
    • - Focus is selected for Custom Setting a2 (AF-S priority selection) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU. A supplementary manual describing this feature is available.
  • • Fixed an issue that resulted in the top control panel displaying “Err” when both XQD and CompactFlash cards were inserted in the camera.

Notice

  • • Before proceeding with the update, users of Lexar 400× and 1000× CompactFlash® memory cards will need to follow the steps here to check compatibility.
  • • Do not attempt to load settings saved using Save/load settings for firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier onto a D4 with “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10. Settings saved with firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier are not compatible with D4 “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10.
  • • Before using a card reader or the like to copy pictures to a computer from a memory card with a capacity exceeding 128 GB, confirm that both the computer operating system and card reader support capacities over 128 GB, as otherwise you may encounter such problems as being unable to transfer images. Note that because memory cards with capacities over 128 GB are supported from camera “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10, files can now be copied via USB.
Changes from Firmware “A” Version 1.04/“B” Version 1.02 to “A” Version 1.05/“B” Version 1.03
  • • Added for support for AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lenses.
  • • Improved the performance of auto white balance.

  • • Fixed an issue that resulted in exposure preview always being enabled during live view photography in exposure mode M (manual).
  • • Fixed an issue that caused a purple stripe to appear at the right edge of small-size TIFF photos.
  • • Fixed an issue that in rare circumstances resulted in JPEG photos failing to open in some applications.
  • • Fixed an issue that in rare circumstances caused inconsistences in the results produced by White balance options with fixed white balance, such as Preset manual and Choose color temp.
Changes from Firmware “A” Version 1.03/“B” Version 1.02 to “A” Version 1.04/“B” Version 1.02
  • • Improved tracking for moving subjects when AF-C (continuous-servo AF) is selected for AF mode during viewfinder photography.

  • • Fixed an issue that caused Capture NX 2 and ViewNX 2 to incorrectly display the focus point for photographs taken during movie recording with 1920×1080; 30 fps; crop, 1920×1080; 25 fps; crop, or 1920×1080; 24 fps; crop selected for Movie settings > Frame size/frame rate and Live frame grab selected for Custom Setting g4 (Assign shutter button) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.
