Upgrade Your Cameras to the Latest Firmware

I upgraded two DSLRs to the latest firmware today. One was just one version out of date, the other was three versions behind!

Firmware updates can solve glitches with some functions, improve functionality, and add features. Just Google your camera model + firmware update, and see what’s available.

It’s not that hard to upgrade, the key is to read the instructions for your model carefully, and follow them exactly.

Don’t Forget Those Old Lenses!

I keep forgetting that I have a couple of 40-year-old Nikkor manual lenses that do work on my D7100 DSLR. This 105mm/2.5 would effectively be about a 155mm/2.5 on this body. It’s said that lenses this old are not optimized for digital (though this lens was renowned for sharpness back in its day).

But this ought to make an excellent portrait lens with its f2.5 max aperture. If it is a bit soft compared to modern designed-for-digital glass, so much the better.
