Firmware Petition for D1/D1x/D1h/D100 Owners (October 7, 2002)

Dear Nikon,

Listed below are the names of people who own your cameras, and have paid a considerable amount of money for them. As a D-Series DSLR owner, we cannot continue to have our cameras sent to a Nikon Repair/Upgrade Center, whenever there is an upgrade available. This is simply not convenient, and those of us who make a living off of our cameras, we cannot afford to have the camera sent out.

Canon owners are able to upgrade their cameras with the latest firmware via Canon's website. Nikon owners not only need this too, but we strongly request this option. So far, there are only 4 DSLR cameras that are unable to be upgraded by the user: The D1, D1x, D1h, and D100. Unfortunately, those who need the convenience of upgrading their firmware from the internet the most, are the advanced amateurs and professionals. These are people who use their cameras almost every day, and do not have the time for an upgrade.

This petition is inform you that there are several Nikon DSLR owners (listed below) who want the convenience and responsibility of upgrading their own cameras, without the need to send the camera to a geographic location that can be very problematic for them. As you are well aware, being a leader in the digital camera world not only has to do with superior picture quality and performance, but also has a relation to how we can upgrade our cameras with little interruption with our photographic profession.

What Nikon DSLR owners are requesting, is an alternative to sending our cameras in to an ugprade/repair facility, for firmware upgrades. We would like the option to upgrade our cameras via internet.
