Initial Observations :lol:

The Update went very smoothly, no problems if the all steps are followed.

The Raw/NEF files are 8mb in size, my 512meg card can take 62 raw images.

It takes 25seconds for the camera to write a image in RAW format.

Adobe Photoshop CS, the latest CameraRaw Plugin version does not have support for the 5400 yet. So you will need to use:

IMPORTANT: Coolpix 5400 NEF files are only supported by the following Nikon software:
  • Nikon View version 6.2.2 or later
    [/*]
  • Nikon Capture version 4.1.0 or later
    [/*]
  • PictureProject version 1.0 or later [/*]

Great PeterP,

Is it just the raw format or did you find any more changes in the menu....

I found the RAW with no problems :lol:but I haven't been able to find any of the menu changes, they are just supposed to be a cosmetic cleanup only, no additional functions/abilities (that I can find).
