Nikon D5100 has a firmware update for the D5100 camera (version 1.01) that solves a small number of issues that weren’t fixed in the original version.
We update your cameras software free as part of the cleaning service. If you cannot get to NYC or just want to update your camera, then the link below will take you to the firmware page.
Note – Make sure you use a good, formatted card to upload the update. You must also make sure to use a full charged battery. Some of your user settings will be lost, so make a note of any thing important. You should also take a note of the last file/image number.
From the Nikon website:
- An error recognizing some memory cards has been addressed.
- When Selective color from the retouch menu is performed on a picture taken with the image quality set to NEF (RAW)+JPEG and an image size of M or S, the edges of the image may not have changed color. This issue has been resolved.
- When Metering was set to Matrix metering, the exposure mode set to M (Manual), and the HDR exposure differential set to Auto, the exposure differential was fixed at a value equivalent to 2 EV. This has been changed to enable automatic adjustment of exposure differential so that it is appropriate for the scene.
