I've got a pair of (used) D-550s. Yes, I know they're old hat now, but my Boss has one and I liked it so much that I bought one (that has a problem, I'll address it in my next post) and then another.

* Both of mine, when I open the lens barrier, the LCD turns on, which then shows a black background and the battery state, number of shots left, etc. After two seconds, the LCD turns back off. In order to use the LCD, I have to press the "Monitor" button.

My Boss' D-550 starts up with the LCD active, and it stays that way. No extra button press needed. He & I are mystified. What gives? I don't see a menu option to change this behaviour.

* Is there a firmware upgrade for the D-550?

* One User Guide (on my server) suggests (in step 3b) that timestamping can be accomplished.

. . . it is recommended that you set the date & time. This affects the way image file names are created, and will conveniently stamp each picture with this information.
I know that the timestamp data is saved in the EXIF fields, but I assume (because every other digital camera I've owned or used could) that it can do the normal consumer thing and punch it onto the image. How is this done?

There is some software that will read the exif data and burn the date and or time onto the photo. Try http://www.DTS8888.com. They have a tiral download.
