D800 "STILL" locks up after FW 1.01

D800 "STILL" locks up after FW 1.01

At night I updated my D800 to FW 1.01, Then the next day I decided to give it a stress test.

Shot 14bit RAW + basic JPG , with Hightlight review after every shot.

Sandisk Extreme PRO CF on main 90mbps as the Main. My relatively new Extreme PRO SD 95mbps 64gb as the Backup.

Got a camera Hang/freeze. Hour glass and green write light (needed to take out battery to start up again ... I am getting fast at it lol). after only a few shots. less than 24.

Make no mistake, I love the D800

... except for the slow fps , and No Dynamic Single AF point, and it hesitation in studio type low light on the AF, and these hangs.

My Crucial SSD M4 256gb has also been acting up lately.

Speed does not equel Reliability.

And because of the 36mp , Speed is a nessesity. (if you are trying to get out a job)
