    Issues addressed with firmware version 2.0.0
    1. Adobe 1998 (Colour Mode II) ICC profile tagging. Images taken in Colour Mode II will have their colour profile embedded, ensuring that the correct colour-space setting can be selected automatically when the images are opened in AdobeTM Photoshop 7 or other applications which support colour management.
    2. Voice memos recorded using the MB-D100 multi-function battery pack (available separately) are stored on the camera memory card as audio files with names of the form "DSC_nnnn.WAV". Where 'nnnn' is a four digit number. (Wav file names match image file names when browsing in Windows Explorer).
    3. LexarTM Write Acceleration compatibility. An increase in write speed by up to 10% depending on file format chosen, with LexarTM WA card.

    A few odd things like the instructions on how to confirm current f/w version
    and the actual improvements, made me puzzled once again!:confused:

    We are either witnessing world's most paradoxical mix up of a huge corporation,
    or Ca-Non's most organized hack attack.:biggrin:

    That's the upgrade from the fall of 2002, V2.0. The only thing new about it is the availability, as previously, Nikon insisted on doing the upgrade themselves. Maybe the pixel mapping software will be next......
