Kodak has posted firmware update 5.3.0 for the Pro14n/nx digital SLRs. The new firmware fixes the problem that occasionally caused some Windows systems to restart while the camera was connected to the computer via FireWire during continous mode. The firmware also addresses the fact that some files couldn't be opened by PhotoDisk, eradicates green and magenta blocking and adds a Manual Mirror Prerelease option that uses the shutter button to raise the mirror and the OK button to open the shutter and capture the exposure.

Kodak DSC Pro 14n/nx firmware update version 5.3.0
- Fixed a problem that occasionally caused some Windows 2000 and Windows XP systems to restart when capturing bursts of images directly to the host computer while tethered via the IEEE 1394 interface.
- Fixed an intermittent problem that generated incorrect header data in DCR files that prevented the images from being opened by Photo Desk.
- Fixed a problem that caused green and magenta blocking in some ERI JPEG images. Although ERI JPEG image quality is improved when viewing/processing images using ERI FFM version 1.0, some artifacts will still be present. Further artifact reduction will be achieved when using ERI JPEG images from firmware version 5.3.0 with ERI FFM version 2.0 (which was not yet available at the time of this release).
- Added a Manual Mirror Prerelease option that uses the shutter button to raise the mirror
