Nikon D7100 Firmware Update Released Version C 1.01

D7100 Firmware VersionNikon has released a firmware update for the D7100 digital camera. The updated firmware fixes some minor bugs. To check the version of the firmware installed on your D7100, press the Menu button and navigate to the Setup menu. Select Firmware Version. The firmware is in different parts labeled C and L (lens correction data). Check to see which version of C you have installed. The updated D7100 firmware is version C 1.01.

Firmware C 1.01 addresses the following issues:

  • When images captured using a flash in Manual or Repeating flash flash mode were played back with the “Overview” display enabled, flash output level was displayed in the flash compensation portion of the display.  This issue has been resolved.
  • When the AE/AF lock button was pressed with Special Effects mode enabled, Selective Color selected, and the view magnified with selective color options displayed in live view, the image did not change while live view was active.  This issue has been resolved.
  • An issue that caused the Viewfinder Virtual Horizon to freeze when certain operations were performed has been resolved.
  • When images captured with white balance bracketing enabled were played back, a white balance fine-tuning value of 9 (steps) was displayed even for images captured with a fine-tuning value of 10 (steps) applied.  This issue has been resolved.
  • An issue that prevented cursor movement when certain operations were performed in calendar playback mode has been resolved.
  • The size of some text displayed in calendar playback mode has been modified.
  • Display of focal lengths in 35mm [135] format recorded in image Exif data has been corrected.
  • With movie recording at 1920 × 1080/24p in M exposure mode, subject brightness did not change, even when shutter speed was adjusted.  This issue has been resolved.

    Hi, Folks!

    I’m not experiencing any of the problems that have been corrected by this firmware update. Given that, is it OK for me to skip this update, or might that cause me problems should I need to take advantage of the next firmware version you issue?

    Thanks for your time and help on this.

      Bruce, if none of these issues affect your usage you can skip the update. Firmware updates include all changes up to current. If you install a future update, it will include these changes.

    Thank you for your nice website and for your efforts about the lovely D7100.
    I’m about to apply this firmware update but I need make sure about this one thing:
    Does applying of this firmware update include any risks?
    My D7100 works fine already and I don’t want to cause myself any trouble.
    Thanks again for your help.

      As long as you follow the procedure there should be no problems updating the firmware. It is hard to do wrong. The most important thing is don’t turn off the camera while it is updating, and charge the battery before you begin. The update takes less than a minute.

    When I shoot combination raw large + JPEG basic file on my nikon d7100, I noticed that it take some extra time to complete the shoot as I have to wait some additional time to view the image on camera lcd. Would this problem also resolved by this new firmware/upgrade ?

      This firmware update does not address any SD card issues. What SD card are you using? Nikon suggests using these recommended sd cards for the D7100. You will see the best speed using a UHS-1 card. It is possible the card you are using compatibility problems. Try using a different card. Format the card in your camera before you begin using it. It is also a good habit to format before each shooting session when to begin with an empty card.
