Nikon has received reports of a small number of D4/D800 users who are experiencing ‘locking up’ issues, where the camera becomes unresponsive until the battery is removed and reinserted. Nikon is investigating a permanent solution to this issue and will update users accordingly. To immediately resolve this issue, users can turn off both the ‘Highlights’ and ‘RGB Histogram’ display options in the ‘Playback Display Options’ sub-menu found in the ‘Playback’ menu. Nikon apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused users.

Adobe Camera Raw 6.7 release candidate is available for download via Adobe Labs. Camera Raw 6.7 adds support for the following cameras:
Remember, this is a release candidate, which means it has been pretty well tested and Adobe thinks it is ready for full release; however, it’s recommended that you keep production work to prior versions until the official releases drop. Expect those to come soon though. Release candidates mean that the final versions are just around the corner.
The D800 that your dealer sells to you for $3000 cost the dealer $2700, while the D800E sells for $3300 and cost the dealer $2970 – a markup of 11% and 10%, respectively. Accessories, however, are a different ball game altogether…

There is no doubt to the popularity and solid performance of the Nikon D700, so this doesn’t necessarily come as a big shocker. The continued flux of the D700’s availability proves that there’s still a pretty big demand for this camera.
No word on what kind of price decreases we might see though. It’d be nice to see the D700 work its way into the sub-$2000 price range in the next few months. (Although that’s mostly wishful thinking – given its current $2700 price tag.) I think that would make it an easier reach for a lot of folks who have been holding off or saving their pennies to grab one.
