Nikon has issued new firmware for its D810, D810A, D750, D7200 and D500 DSLR cameras that fixes a number of issues and which will allow those that can’t already to operate with the company’s WT-7 wireless transmitter. The transmitter itself also has new firmware to accommodate the added models, and to improve the reliability of its connection with SnapBridge on iOS 10.2 devices.

As well as equipping the D810, D810A, D750 and D7200 for life with the WT-7 the firmware attends to a number of bugs in the cameras, as marked below.
