So, this came out of nowhere, and it’s highly unlikely to be a response to recent reports of Nikon’s withdrawal from the DSLR market, but the coincidental timing was too much of an opportunity to pass up. Nikon has released a new V1.05 firmware for 2013’s Nikon D7100 DSLR. It’s not a massive update by any means but it is a simple (and single) change that will make some D7100 owners quite happy.
The new firmware fixes an issue whereby the display would automatically turn itself off after 10 minutes even if it was set to not turn off at all when enabled via Camera Control Pro 2. While this might seem like a small feature, , for anybody using their old DSLRs into HDMI capture devices for live streaming or video conferencing with remote control using CCP2, this makes the D7100 much more useful.
