Nikon has released firmware updates for the Nikon D300, D300s, D700 and P7700.
The firmware updates for the D300, D300s and D700 add support for the new Nikon 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens.
The firmware update for the Nikon Coolpix P7700 includes the following improvements:
When shooting with shooting mode set to M (manual) with Flash, and the ISO sensitivity set to Auto, ISO 80-200, ISO 80-400, or ISO 80-800, ISO sensitivity was sometimes not locked at ISO 80 and a different ISO sensitivity was sometimes applied. This issue has been resolved.
You can download the firmware updates here at Nikon’s website.
When the D7100 was announced, it sure seemed like it was positioned as a replacement for both the D7000 and the D300s. Nikon USA even said as much – calling it the flagship DX-format camera.
Nikon Europe has responded directly to questions regarding the D7100′s placement in its DSLR lineup. [click to continue…]

In what could be the biggest camera launch of the year, one of Nikon Rumors’ sources has tipped the launch of the Nikon D4 and D400 for August.
Given the coming Sony A77 with a 24MP sensor, it is most likely that the D400 will sport the same 24MP APS-C sensor but labeled with the ubiquitous “Developed by Nikon” asterisk seen in recent Nikon pro-DSLR specs. The D400 will almost certainly feature 1080p video to follow the recent trend of Nikon DSLRs. Hopefully, the D400 will avoid the cumbersome aperture adjustment problem that made the Nikon D7000 more frustrating for video capture.
