D800 | Nikon
Nikon's EN-EL15 battery pack has officially been recalled in the US and Canada following a handful of short-circuiting incidents that resulted in overheating.
Nikon has released firmware updates for its D4, D800, and D800E DSLRs that address freezing issues with the cameras in addition to other smaller bugs.
Nikon has just told Photo District News that "a small number of D4 / D800 users" have reported their cameras locking up and freezing; the company also said it's working on a "permanent solution."
Nikon is recalling two lots of its rechargeable lithium-ion camera batteries because of short-circuiting issues that can deform the outside of the battery.
Nikon has announced that the D800E will be shipping today in Japan, albeit in limited qualities at first meaning some customers with preorders will have to wait a little longer.
Nikon's forthcoming D4, D800, and D800E cameras have seen a price rise of 10 percent in the UK following a "local internal systems error."
Nikon's D4 was originally slated to launch in February, but now the company has confirmed to us that it will be launching mid-March, alongside the D800.
