| p.4 #16 · p.4 #16 · Nikon issues new firmware for D600, D800 & D4 DSLRs |
My personal observation are:
1) the AF-C tracking in 3-D mode is a lot faster than before, especially in DX mode where the focusing points fill the display area. Confirmed this shooting my son's flying.
2) my unit has a very slight green tint which does not affect picture taking because green was never taken into consideration for WB, only red and blue does.
If one works with any LCD manufacturer will know that every batch of LCDs will be slightly different due to the panels, liquid crystals, filter films and backlights that goes on it. It is the tolerance that is set between Nikon and its suppliers that we are seeing. After comparing the GretagMacbeth Color Chart between my camera and a calibrated computer screen, the new firmware did not correct or do anything to improve on the green tint. As I said it is not obvious and critical for my unit.
3) review through the LCD looks a lot better after the update due to new algorithm use to interpolate the 7,360 x 4,192 image pixel to the 3.2" 921k display. Yes it looks a lot sharper especially when viewing shadow area at high ISO setting where the noise used to be really bad due to poor interpolation causing it to look like a whole big patch of noise rather than just individual pixel of noise.
4) using LV to focus is a lot easily and faster because it now looks sharper on the display.
As for the rest of the improvements, I have not done any test on it or does not have the accessories to do it.
