Nikon has released firmware updates for both the D5200 and D7100 cameras, taking the firmware from version 1.02 to version 1.03. Both new versions of the firmware reduce horizontal line noise in videos recorded at 1280×720/60p and 1280×720/50p. In addition, firmware v. 1.03 fixes select bugs affecting both models.

An issue that causes the cameras to freeze when the 'Clean image sensor' option is selected has been fixed in both the D5200 and D7100 cameras. In addition, the D7100's new firmware corrects the following problems:

  • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the display to darken when images were viewed by pressing the  (playback) button.
  • Fixed an issue with the menus for some languages where continued scrolling would cause the camera to freeze.
  • Fixed issues with the virtual horizon displayed using the Viewfinder virtual horizon option.
