Nikon has released firmware updates for the D40 and D40x DSLRs.

The following issues has been resolved in A firmware version 1.12:

By upgrading A firmware to Ver. 1.12, EN-EL9a performance is maximized so that more images can be captured (battery performance) when an EN-EL9a is used than when an EN-EL9 is used.

Number of shots possible (battery performance) with EN-EL9a (1,080 mAh)

  • Single-frame shooting mode: Approximately 510 shots (with testing according to CIPA standards*)
