In an age where mirrorless camera makers release detailed firmware updates full of new features, updated features and bug fixes, we have come to expect a level of transparency and information regarding these updates.


Today, Nikon announced probably the most vague and pointless – as far as I can tell – firmware update for the D750 that I have ever seen come across my desk. Firmware C:1.02, comes with only the following description in regards to what was changed on the camera: “Camera operation is now more reliable.”

While I am sure that we can all agree that a camera being updated to ‘operate more reliably’ is a good thing. However, the level of vagueness here is borderline incompetent from Nikon. We want to now HOW it is being made more reliable. What issues were addressed?

I don’t think I will ever expect Nikon, or Canon for that matter, to start doing firmware updates like the mirrorless companies do. But if they could stick to their own standards that would be great; this is a new low for Nikon.

We appreciate any updates to make our cameras run better, of course, but some more information here is necessary. Am I wrong here? Am I the only one who finds this absurd? It is almost like Nikon is trolling us.

What are your thoughts on this? Should Nikon be more specific about what changes are being made to your camera? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
