D70 Firmware Update 1.0.1 / 1.0.2
About this firmware:
The D70 has two sets of firmware, A and B, which must be updated separately, the D70 'A' firmware from version 1.00 to version 1.01 and 'B' firmware from version 1.01 to version 1.02. This download file contains both sets of firmware, A and B as separate files. Upgrade is not necessary if your camera already has these versions of firmware installed.
Issues addressed with 'A' firmware version 1.01
- Correction of vignetting that was sometimes visible in the upper areas
of images captured in Continuous mode using high shutter speeds.
- Correction of an issue that intermittently prevented the Automatic Sensitivity Adjustment function (ISO Auto: CSM 5) to work when the built-in Speedlight was raised but did not fire.
Issues addressed with 'B' firmware version 1.02
- Supports for Compact Flash memory cards with a capacity greater
than 4GB has been added.
- Correction of an issue that sometimes prevented the camera from being
turned off when images were captured in Continuous mode. This occurred
at an Image size setting of M and an Image quality setting
of FINE, and caused the memory card access lamp to glow
- Errors in Chinese menus and message text have been corrected.
