Nikon Pre-Announces D70 Firmware Update

TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce a firmware update that brings refined performance enhancements to the Nikon D70.

The rapid pace at which development of digital technologies is proceeding inevitably leads to a continual release of new products. In the face of this dynamic, Nikon is determined to demonstrate our respect for the many customers who purchased a D70 digital SLR camera by delivering, where possible, the latest technology that the digital world has to offer through firmware updates. The D70 firmware update to be released shortly aims to share enhancements developed for the new D70s, and thereby to strengthen the performance of the D70.

The firmware update includes the following additions and refinements:

* Improved performance for the 5-area autofocus system's Dynamic Area AF and Closest Subject Priority Dynamic Area AF modes.
* Updated menus with a new design similar to that of the D70s, making them easier to view and quicker to recognize.
* Added in-camera page setup support for PictBridge compatible printers.

Nikon Corporation will release the D70 firmware updater worldwide in mid-May 2005.
I still like my FZ20 but know this will be the LAST Panasonic camera I buy if Panasonic doesn't start to run with the pack.
