Firmware update: Nikon D5500 1.02

Nikon has for its D5500-digital SLR cameras released new firmware with version number 1.02. The firmware can be loaded onto the camera from a macOS or Windows machine. These cameras have an aps-c format dx-cmos image sensor with 24.2 megapixels on board and are suitable for lenses with a Nikon F mount. The list of changes looks like this:

Changes from ā€œCā€ Firmware Version 1.01 to 1.02

Fixed the following issues:

  • The camera would stop responding if the multi selector was pressed right with Add items > CUSTOM SETTING MENU > c Timers/AE lock selected in MY MENU.
  • The shutter would sometimes not be released in response to live view touch shutter controls if autofocus was used with an SB-800 flash unit attached.
  • Optimal exposure would sometimes not be achieved in photographs taken during live view with lenses that support both autofocus and electronic aperture control (type E lenses).
  • If image review was enabled during viewfinder photography, the camera would sometimes display shooting information in place of the most recent picture when the user removed their eye from the viewfinder after shooting.
  • The camera would sometimes fail to store the option selected for a Autofocus > a3 Built-in AF-assist illuminator in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU after the mode dial was rotated to another setting.

Once this firmware is installed, the Windows edition of Camera Control Pro 2 versions 2.22.0 and earlier will no longer be able to detect the camera. Upgrade to version 2.23.0 or later.
