Just a FYI. A new firmware update is coming real soon. Already listed in the Aus area of the Nikon site. New firmware is 1.10

Quote:
What's New?

Modifications enabled with upgrade of A and B firmware from Ver. 1.03 to Ver. 1.10

The Highlights playback display option has been moved from Display mode>Basic photoinfo>Highlights in the playback menu to Display mode>Detailed photoinfo>Highlights.

The size and color of “Demo” displayed in the monitor with playback when No memory card? in the Custom Settings is set to Enable release, have been modified.

The range of settings available for ISO sensitivity settings>ISO sensitivity autocontrol>Minimum shutter speed in the shooting menu has been increased from 1/250–1 s to 1/4000–1 s.

When shooting in hand-held live view mode and the frame is magnified prior to autofocusing, operation has been modified so that display returns to the magnified display rather than full-frame display.

Images captured with Rotate tall, in the playback menu, set to On are not automatically rotated for display immediately after capture (image review).

A Copyright information item has been added to the setup menu. When Copyright information is enabled, the copyright symbol (©) is shown in the shooting info display.

Recent settings can now be displayed in place of My Menu.

Custom Setting e3 Flash cntrl for built-in flash (e3 Optional flash when an optional Speedlight is mounted on the camera) can now be added to My Menu using the Add items option in My Menu from Add items>Custom settingmenu>e Bracketing/flash.

The degree of the High ISO NR setting can now be confirmed in the shooting info display while the High ISO NR setting item, in the shooting menu, is being applied.

Ankara, Riyadh, Kuwait, and Manama have been added to the Time zone options for the World time item in the setup menu.

When a GPS device is used and no heading information is available, ---.--° is now displayed for the Position>Heading option in the GPS item in the setup menu.

When shooting in live view mode using Camera Control Pro 2 (Ver. 2.2.0 or later) with a PC-E lens, the aperture setting can now be adjusted from the computer.

Focus acquisition performance in dynamic-area AF mode has been improved.

Focus acquisition performance with contrast-detect AF has been improved.

Auto white balance performance has been improved.

The fourth digit in seconds display for GPS latitude and longitude information is now rounded off rather than omitted.

The current MB-D10 battery type setting can now be confirmed in the shooting info display when R6/AA-size batteries are used with the Multi-Power Battery Pack MB-D10.

An issue that caused an increase in noise with shooting in [M] exposure mode at a shutter speed setting of bulb with the shutter held open for less than 8 seconds and Long exp. NR enabled has been resolved.

An issue that prevented shutter release at the specified shutter speed when no operations were performed for 30 seconds in mirror up mode has been resolved.

An issue that caused abnormal image display when Image review was set to On and the playback zoom in button was pressed immediately after shooting at the following settings has been resolved.
Image quality: NEF (RAW ) + JPEG
NEF (RAW) recording: Lossless compressed or Compressed
Image size: S or M

When the Speedlight SB-800 was mounted on the camera with flash mode set to distance-priority manual (GN) mode, and the camera recovered from standby mode triggered by the auto meter off function, the distance information displayed on the SB-800 changed. This issue has been resolved.

Cool, thanks for sharing.

I've been so busy this year, I don't think I've really worked the menu much besides setting up my standard settings.
