Nikon D500 Firmware Update

Nikon-D500-front-image

Nikon released a firmware update 1.02 for the Nikon D500 camera that will fix certain memory Card issues with the Nikon D500 camera. Keep in mind Nikon will soon announce more updates related to fix some issues related to Nikon D500.

Addressed an issue that sometimes caused errors with certain UHS-II SD memory cards. As we were able to confirm that these were read errors arising not in the camera but in the cards themselves, we addressed the issue with a work-around that switches temporarily to UHS-I mode when a card-side error occurs in UHS-II mode. The camera switches back to UHS-II mode when turned off and then on again or when the standby timer restarts. Card-side read errors may still occur after the update, albeit very infrequently.

Nikon vs Third Party Fight

Nikon-vs-third-party-image
It all started from Nikon D5300, Nikon D5300 was not accepting sigma lenses but after firmware update it all fixed now, Recently announced Nikon DF also showed same problem and Sigma promised to fix it very soon via a firmware update (Nikon DF – AF Problem with Sigma Lenses).

According Nikon users worldwide Last D3100, D3200, D5100, D5200 and P7700 firmware update killed third party battery compatibility, their third party EN-EL14 batteries no longer work after the last firmware update.

Yes we know that Nikon profit is all time-down and sales are also affected due to smartphone sales + Sony RX series arrival + Nikon D600 oil issue, but this is not the good way to increase the profit.
