A Dslr That Is 10 Years Old Gets A Firmware Update! Nikon D7100 Owners Rejoice

Nikon just updated the Nikon D7100 out of the blue with new software for a camera that is 10 years old. Even though Nikon isn’t making any new DSLRs, it’s good to know that the firmware is still being updated. Other companies, such as Canon, have pretty much stopped making improvements to their DSLRs.

The Nikon D7100 came out in February 2013, and it was advertised as a high-performance DSLR that was small and could take high-resolution photos and FullHD videos.

It was better than the well-known Nikon D7000. It had a new sensor with 24.1 megapixels, 12 more focus points, a better dynamic range, a bigger screen, and better video features. At the time, it was one of the best-cropped sensor cameras you could buy, and some people say it could focus better in low light than the D600.

It was great for amateur and hobbyist photographers and could be used for portraits, landscapes, astrophotography, and street photography, among other things. Even now, it’s a popular choice for people who want to buy a used camera that won’t break the bank but will take better photos than their phone.

Even though the latest firmware update isn’t very exciting, it’s great news for people who use live view a lot because it means they can use it as long as they want. Because of a bug, live view used to stop working after 10 minutes. The bug has been fixed in the new firmware update version 1.05.

Nikon recently said that both the D5600 and D3500 would be taken off the market. They will join the Nikon D500, which is a popular camera for taking pictures of wildlife, and the Nikon D750, which is the best camera for low light.

We don’t know how long Nikon will continue to add new firmware to older DSLR models. But for those who haven’t yet switched to a Nikon Z mirrorless system, it’s good to know that an old camera can still learn new tricks (or at least, have new tricks installed).
