If you noticed some errant underexposed images when using your D700, it may not have been due to your settings. Nikon has released a firmware update that corrects the issue. The aberration for the severely underexposed images is rare but can occur.

It is not difficult to implement a firmware update to your camera’s inherent processing software. The instructions can be downloaded along with the update. You do need a card reader, but you should be using one anyway. It’s always wise to implement firmware updates from the manufacturer. In this case, I’m surprised that this fix hasn’t been offered sooner. The D700 has been out for almost 4 years!

There is a D700 firmware update out.  It’s version A/B 1.0.2 If you haven’t updated your firmware in your camera body, it’s fairly easy. Just follow the instructions carefully. Check the menu button on your camera body and select Firmware Version from the setup menu to see the current installed version. Nikon requires that you use a card reader (you should be using one anyway) and not a USB connected body. It was previously more complicated when they had you insert/format the CF card twice to update in two steps. It’s been rolled into one so much easier now. Make sure you have a fully charged battery installed.

They also fixed viewing the focus point after shooting continuous burst mode in playback mode. I use the AF-ON button for auto focus instead of the shutter press when shooting and often shoot in Continuous Mode. Glad to see this fix. I’m not running out to buy 64GB CF cards but that support is also included in this update. I’m curious to see the Auto White Balance tweak.
