  2. Its about time! When I had my D200 it was returned to Nikon 3 times with this problem, they ended up giving me a new D200 that I sold.
  3. Thanks! Off to download.........

  4. Is that the only thing it does? Cause, I don't have DBS....
  5. Thanks for the info, off to download in a few minutes.

    FWIW, I took my D200 in a few weeks ago for a cleaning and report of DBS. This upgrade obviously wasn't ready, but they also fixed the focusing pin.

    Should have (I hope) a like new camera when I'm done with the upgrade.
  6. Thanks for the link!
  7. installing...my firmware ver was 1.01 lol :biggrin:
    i wish it did a little more maybe added couple more sharpening steps or better NR algorithms
  8. since when did Nikon require one to create an account and validate just to download some firmware?
  9. I didn't have DBS on mine but since I skipped the previous update, this is likely to be it for the D200 & happy Nikon is addressing an issue with an obsolete camera, I decided to go for it.

    Jumped from original firmware to 2.01.

    Bought mine April 2006 and it is still going strong.

    Way to go Nikon!
  10. same here.... :tongue:

    No problem with DBS here, but did the firmware upgrade with no problem.

    Same here.
  14. My D200 has never had DBS but the battery indicator has always been a little strange. It would show a little low after one shot and full charge after another. The battery also runs down too fast, but then I was spoiled by the D100s ability to nurse on a battery for 700 or so shots. Anyway, maybe the update will help. Thanks for the heads up.

    Hmmm... Mine ain't broke (1.01/1.00). Should I fix it?

    DBS sounds more like my decrepit D70. Is this stuff communicable? And does passing it along to body B cure body A? :rolleyes: 
  16. Nancy,

    Personally, I think you should. Don't know if it is a disease reportable to public health authorities, but prevention can be useful.

    Me either:eek: 
    I haven't experienced the problem so I feel it's best to not install the firmware update unless I have DBS troubles in the future.
  18. Do people do this with their computers too? Do you not install an Apple or Microsoft update just because you haven't seen the problem? Isn't prevention better than cure ?

    Just my £0.02.

    Software updates are totally different.
    Remember the D3 firmware update that was pulled from Nikon's website and customers warned not to install it if they downloaded the update:eek: 
  20. The truth is that we don't know what's in there. Hence, better let others try it first :wink:

    Btw. on another forum (can't remember where) someone wrote that the update fixed their AF problems on a specific lens (I think it was a Sigma).

    That being said, I did the update and it went smoothly. No issues so far.

    The stupid thing is, I had to install Wine because they only provide the binaries packaged in Win/Mac executables, and I'm running Linux.
