Having read some horror stories about how updating ended up requiring the camera to be sent back to Nikon, I'm wondering about the benefit of updating.
I am fully capable of following the instructions from Nikon, although I find the statement that version must be lower than 2.0 while showing an image of the version as 2.0 a bit odd.
I'd appreciate hearing any thoughts others might care to post now that the updates have been out for quite awhile now.
Part of me subscribes to the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" school, so unless there's more to the updates than Nikon publishes, I'm a bit skeptical. After all, lots of us are familiar with Windows updates.....
It solves a possible battery meter problem and maybe some others I'm not sure about.
Piece of cake to update if you follow the instructions. That bit is the key - the horror stories are based round people who didn't follow the instructions and did stupid things like use a memory card with other items on it or had a low battery or powered off during the process.
If you follow the instructions it should be OK and it is worth it...
Updating to the latest firmware helps eliminate potential issues before they occur.
If you follow the instructions you shouldn't have any problems. It is very easy to do and only takes a few minutes. The important thing to remember is to fully charge the battery before you start. Then follow the instructions step by step.
