In early March, Nikon offered a temporary fix to a lock up issue that had been plaguing the D4 and D800. At the time you had to turn off the ‘Highlights’ and ‘RGB Histogram’ display options to avoid the issue, but Nikon promised a more permanent fix was in the works. Good news, the fix is finally here in the form of Firmware Update B:1.01.
Besides fixing the lock up issue, the new update also offers solutions to a few other bugs including unexpected changes to aperture and exposure compensation when using certain custom settings and RAW files not being network transferrable when in JPEG only mode. More details including the firmware downloads for the D800 and D4 are ready for your downloading pleasure here and here, respectively.

Nikon, however, has responded by claiming that the D3s and D700 models were in fact the less accurate pair. According to Nikon Rumors, Nikon tech support is blaming the LCD on the D3s and D700, asserting that its higher display color temperatures leads to blue tinted images. Read more…
Nikon’s new flagship D4 DSLR and its cousin the D800 were both designed by famed Italian car designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and his studio Italdesign Giugiaro. The studio’s website has put up portfolio entries for both cameras. The partnership was rumored prior to the launch and wasn’t much of a surprise: Giugiaro has been involved in the design of nearly all the high end pro Nikon cameras that have been released since 1980.
