Nikon Release Firmware Updates for D600, D610, and D750

By Justin Heyes on July 28th 2017

The official centennial of Nikon has come and gone and in its wake, the imaging giant left whispers, teasers, and hopes of what is the future for the company. Across the net wish lists are being compiled and ‘must haves’ are being bulleted for the new hotness that is the D850. With Nikon mum about the majority of the details, photographers clutch onto the older cameras in hopes of enough of change to justify an upgrade. As photographers wait with baited breath, Nikon releases firmware upgrades for three DSLRs in their current line up.
