Is your camera running the latest firmware? 

Check you’re up to date with our handy guide.

Most cameras see their firmware updated a handful of times throughout the course of their lifetime, but unless you’ve bought a model very recently it’s possible that your camera is still running an older version.

We’ve rounded up the latest firmware versions for current and recently discontinued cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony & Fujifilm so you can check yours is running the right one.

Just find the firmware option in your camera’s menu system and check that number against the one below for your camera.

Nikon

D5

Current version: 1.20
Release date: July 2017

  • Added two new AF-area modes: group-area AF (HL) and group-area AF (VL). The user selects a row (HL) or column (VL) of focus points; when AF-C is selected for focus mode, the camera will give priority to the point in the selected row or column containing the subject closest to the camera.
  • Updated the photo info display to show the color temperature for photos taken with Auto selected for white balance.
  • Added an Exif tag listing the difference between the local time zone and UTC, part of the Exif 2.31 specification.
  • Added the support for the following features of AF-P lenses:
    – If the standby timer expires after the camera has focused, the focus position will not change when the timer is reactivated.
    – In manual focus mode, the focus indicator in the viewfinder (or in live view, the focus point selected in the monitor) will flash to show that infinity or the minimum focus distance has been reached by rotating the focus ring.
  • Changed the checks performed when Clean image sensor > Clean now is selected in the SETUP MENU. We recommend that you perform image sensor cleaning after updating the firmware.
  • Fixed the following issues:
    – The higher the amount of Active D Lighting selected when optional flash units were used with auto aperture (AA), non-TTL auto (A), or distance-priority manual (GN) flash mode, the more the resulting images would be underexposed.
    – Changes to exposure (including exposure compensation) would not be reflected in the photo live view exposure preview while the display was zoomed in.
    – Photo live view display WB could not be selected in the i-button menu while the exposure preview was displayed in photo live view.
    – Taking long bursts of photos with On selected for Network > Options > Auto send would sometimes drastically slow the recording of data to the memory card.
  • Reduced the amount of time needed to connect to hidden SSIDs when WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK is selected for Authentication.
  • Updated some help text.

 

 


 D4S

Current version: 1.33
Release date: February 2018

  • Added the following supports for AF-P lenses:
    – If the standby timer expires after focusing, the focus position will no longer change when the timer is reactivated.
    – When focus is adjusted by rotating the lens focus ring, the focus indicator in the viewfinder (and in live view, the focus point in the monitor) now flash to indicate when infinity or the minimum focus distance is reached.
    • Added support for AF-P DX lenses.

 

 


 D4

Current version: 1.11
Release date: February 2018

  • • Added an Assign remote Fn button option at Position f17 in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU.
    • Added support for CompactFlash memory cards with capacities over 128 GB.
    • If the AF-ON button is used to focus during viewfinder photography when AF-ON only is selected for Custom Setting a4 (AF activation) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU, focus will remain locked when the button is released. Previously the shutter could then be released at any time, but under the following conditions this behavior has been changed so that the shutter will not be released if the camera is unable to focus:
    – AF-S is selected for AF mode
    – Single-point AF is selected for AF-area mode
    – Focus is selected for Custom Setting a2 (AF-S priority selection) in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU. A supplementary manual describing this feature is available.
    • Fixed an issue that resulted in the top control panel displaying “Err” when both XQD and CompactFlash cards were inserted in the camera.
    Notice
    • Before proceeding with the update, users of Lexar 400× and 1000× CompactFlash® memory cards will need to follow the steps here to check compatibility.
    • Do not attempt to load settings saved using Save/load settings for firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier onto a D4 with “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10. Settings saved with firmware “A” version 1.05/“B” version 1.03 or earlier are not compatible with D4 “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10.
    • Before using a card reader or the like to copy pictures to a computer from a memory card with a capacity exceeding 128 GB, confirm that both the computer operating system and card reader support capacities over 128 GB, as otherwise you may encounter such problems as being unable to transfer images. Note that because memory cards with capacities over 128 GB are supported from camera “A”/“B” firmware version 1.10, files can now be copied via USB.

 

 


 D500

Current version: 1.14
Release date: February 2018

  •  Fixed the following issues:
    – When pictures were viewed after shooting with Overflow selected for Role played by card in Slot 2 in the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU, the camera would sometimes display the second-last picture taken.
    – Microphone sensitivity would sometimes not be correctly adjusted when movies were recorded with Auto sensitivity > Microphone sensitivity.

    – Optimal exposure would sometimes not be achieved in photos taken in live view using a lens with electromagnetically controlled aperture (type E lenses).
