Nikon has released two firmware updates, patching and adding features to the Nikon D600, D800 and D800E. While most of the improvements are fairly low key, there are a few notable improvements that should please some users.
This full-frame DSLR provides high-performance at a low price
By Philip Ryan on January 23, 2013
