Nikon has released a firmware update for the Nikon D800 DSLR camera. According to the company, Version A1.01 / B1.02 incorporates a number of improvements and fixes, some of which appear to be quite significant. Click through / read on for the details.

  Support for the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR has been added.
  Subject tracking performance in AF-C (continuous-servo autofocus) autofocus mode with framing using the viewfinder has been improved.
  Gamut for Adobe RGB images displayed in the camera’s monitor has been changed. This enables more vivid display of images.
  With live view photography in [M] (Manual) exposure mode, exposure preview was always on.  This issue has been resolved.
  In some very rare cases when certain memory cards were used, movie recording would stop, even when the time remaining display indicated remaining recording time.  This issue has been resolved.
  With shooting at an image quality setting of TIFF (RGB) and an image size setting of Small, the right edge of images contained a purple line.  This issue has been resolved.
  In some rare cases, images recorded in JPEG format could not be opened by some software applications.  This issue has been resolved.
  In some very rare cases, colors would change with shooting when white balance was set to a specific color temperature, as with Preset manual or Choose color temp.  This issue has been resolved.

Whew. This fixes the bug where exposure preview in live mode could not be turned off in manual mode, which made live view useless with studio strobes. Tried it last night and it is now fine - now it's the camera I was hoping for, thanks!

Dont like it at all, the original firmware was excellent in taking perfect pics in low light (auto settings), after the upgrade, its no longer doing so, I have to go manual to adjust A and S to get the similar results ....

Is there a way to downgrade the firmware back to original?
