DSLR fans, rejoice. Nikon has just announced two firmware updates for two of its more popular models, mainly the D7100 and the D5200. Both cameras are getting some much needed attention to their video recording capabilities, which both firmware updates seem to focus on mainly. The new firmware version is numbered 1.03, and comes as a direct upgrade to the previous 1.02 version. The D7100 is getting slightly more tweaks, but both cameras are being improved when it comes to the level of noise visible in their 720p recorded videos, both in 60 FPS and 50 FPS. You can take a look at the exact changes below:

Nikon D7100:

  • • Reduced noise (horizontal lines) in movies shot with 1280×720; 60p or 1280×720; 50p selected for Frame size/frame rate.
  • • Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the display to darken when images were viewed by pressing the  (playback) button.
  • • Fixed an issue with the menus for some languages where continued scrolling would cause the camera to freeze.
  • • Fixed issues with the virtual horizon displayed using the Viewfinder virtual horizon option.
  • • Fixed an issue with the camera freezing when the Clean image sensor option was used.

Nikon D5200:

  • • Reduced noise (horizontal lines) in movies shot with 1280×720; 60p or 1280×720; 50p selected for Frame size/frame rate.
  • • Fixed an issue with the camera freezing when the Clean image sensor option was used.
