Nikon Firmware
Almost looks like “distortion control data” is a subtitle to Nikon’s slogan 😉

Nikon has released firmware for a host of cameras – nothing too exciting, lens correction information for the following cameras Nikon D90, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D7000, D4, D800 and D800e – Download it at

Nice to see Nikon not forgetting about their older cameras too – the D90 is approaching four years now and is still an excellent camera, for that matter so is the D80 which is selling used on Amazon for around $300 – no HD video but certainly a fantastic photography machine and if you are on a tight budget and are desperate to get into DSLR photography buying used is an excellent option.  I think we are in place now, similar to PCs, where the need to upgrade is not nearly as strong as it was just a few years ago.  Notice I didn’t say “want” but need.  Once we hit double digits with the Megapixels most everything after that became bells and whistles – Except video for all my videographer friends.  But for still shooters you can get gorgeous and large prints out of a D80 with ease, ergonomically speaking it is great too and because it has an infocus body motor it will work all Nikon lenses give you a few more options over the Dxxxx series cameras.    I will expand this idea of buying used in a future post – there are some great deals out there, I have bought used in the past and it has worked out well.

 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance.
