| p.2 #4 · Nikon issues new firmware for D600, D800 & D4 DSLRs |
Well, I've been playing with it a bit - took some before and after shots with same camera. What I did notice was in some difficult lighting (our workstations are a lighting torture test with mixed halogen spots and fluorescent floods) where auto white balance has always been a problem the post-firmware D4 is spot on. Never had a camera able to do that before, including the D4 pre firmware upgrade.
Otherwise, the in-camera jpgs are more contrasty without blowing out anything, which the histogram confirms. It definitely looks nicer. I'm not sure I'd call it "sharper and more 3 dimensional" myself, but that probably sounds a lot more impressive than "improved white balance and contrast".
But it really is better, the difference is quite apparent.
