Nikon heeft nieuwe firmware voor de D700-dslr beschikbaar gesteld. De firmware verhoogt het versienummer van de besturingssoftware naar versie 1.01 en kan via Windows en Mac OS X op de D700 worden gezet. In firmware 1.01 zijn een aantal bugs verholpen. Zo is er een bug uit de software gehaald die op kon treden als er een Speedlight SB-800 op de camera zat. Het volledige changelost ziet er als volgt uit:
The following improvements have been made in version 1.01
When Custom Setting a4 Focus tracking with lock-on was set to Off in Continuous-servo AF, the lens drive moved gradually without achieving focus. This issue has been resolved. When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to Distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and then the exposure meters were reactivated or the camera was turned on, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved. When the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10 was mounted on the camera and an EN-EL3e battery inserted in the camera but no batteries inserted in the MB-D10, and SB-900 flash mode set to TTL auto flash mode, the flash mode changed to A mode when the exposure meters turned off or were reactivated, or the camera was turned off or on. This issue has been resolved. (This issue has also been resolved with SB-900 firmware Ver. 5.02.) An issue that, in extremely rare cases, resulted in noticeable black dots in images captured with Long exp. NR in the shooting menu set to On has been resolved. Manamah, displayed in the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu, has been changed to Manama.
