"RE: D200 firmware questions"

I purchased a previously owned D200 on eBay in 2008. I had issues with the battery indicator blinking on a fully charged battery, and Nikon support sent me the response below. As it turned out, version 2.01 corrected one issue from 2.00... the issue with the battery indicator! Here is a copy of the response I got from Nikon (4 months after the firmware update was released... My advice... update your firmware, and if you follow the instructions it will go off like clockwork!
**************************************************************
How do I update my D200 firmware?

Modifications enabled with this update

•An issue that, in some rare situations, caused the battery indicator to blink with shooting, regardless of actual battery charge status, has been resolved.

*******************************************************************

My take... the latest firmware will give you the best performance for your Nikon. Install it as directed and you will have the best-performing D200 in your hands. Never had a problem once the firmware was installed. The instructions were daunting at first glance, however following them to the letter ensured a smooth install even for a rookie.

FYI... although my primary body is now the D3, I purchased an Ikelite underwater housing for the D200 so I will be using this excellent camera for a long time. The firmware upgrade was the only reason I felt confident enough to purchase a $1400 housing for underwater use in many years to come.
