The free firmware is designed to offer the Nikon D70 some of the same performance upgrades available in the new Nikon D70s announced today. Kudos to Nikon for supporting existing Nikon D70 owners in this way.

The new features provided by the firmware update include: Improved autofocus to equal D70s, easier to read menu system, and in camera page setup to support PictBridge direct printing.
