I downloaded the File and place in its own folder.

My camera shows as:
C: 1.00
L: 1.06


Yet on Nikon Message Center 2
Show no Updates available

Have D3200

How do I go about updating?
Do I format a card and transer to the Card?
Or directly from Hard Drive.

I have following lens:
18-55
55-200
10-24 all having VR
and a 35mm f/1.8 as well that has VR

I use a Mac computer.

Version L:1.06 does not exist. You probably have L:1.006.

>How do I go about updating?

Full instructions are in the link provided above. Or see them here.

yep left a zero out.

c:1.00
L:1.006

Just followed Instructions and the update went lightning Fast.

Now that I've gone through it, next time it will be easy. Must have not been a very large file.

Now.

c:1.00
L:1.009

Will keep the card created for when my other camera comes back from Repairs (if ever).

You're quite right, the Nikon site does not show this update yet...weird.

It is there (on Nikon USA). You'll find it under "Distortion Control Data" rather than under a specific camera.

Thanks for checking. Didn't want to put any malware on my camera.

What's the best way to find out about these updates? Is there anything other than just checking the Nikon website periodically?

It's different. Under the firmware menu, there are 3 things listed: A, B, and L. A and B are firmware, and L is the distortion control data. There is one download to update A and B, and a second download to update L.
