Kodak today has posted firmware v4.2.2 for the DCS Pro 14n. The new firmware enables the MMC/SD slot, shortens camera startup time, improves long exposure noise processing and more.
The Kodak web site lists these changes in v4.2.2:
A "Write Speed" feature has been added to the CF Card option located on the Capture menu. Speeds are measured in Megabytes per second (Mbytes/sec). *Note: Card write speeds are improved when capturing with the color LCD off.
Card slot for Secure Digital (SD) and Multi Media Card (MMC) has been enabled. SDMMC cards can now be used in the DCS Pro14n. Please note that SD and MMC cards have slower write speeds than most CF cards.
Focus Area Lock feature has been added to the Custom Function Menu. The camera's focus area can now be locked or unlocked by setting the camera's "Foc. Area Lock" feature to "Unlocked" or "Locked".
Startup time has been improved.
Faster shutdown time when the main power switch is turned off.
Vertical release menu now includes Auto, Unlock and Lock settings.
Standard JPEG files have been added to the JPEG File Type settings on the image tab menu as an alternative to the Extended Range Imaging (ERI) JPEG file type.
Histogram ERI (Extended Range Imaging) zone now starts at the 170% clip mark.
Support for future on board memory expansion has been added.
Both Compact flash (CF) and Secure Digital/Multi Media Card (SD/MMC) storage card configuration settings are maintained when switching from Advanced Mode to Basic Mode.
All White Balance (WB) settings are now available and adjustable in Basic mode with the exception of the click WB setting.
ISO dependent long exposure shutter time limits have been enhanced.
If the long exposure setting is enabled, a warning message will appear on the LCD for images captured outside of the recommended exposure setting for the current ISO. *Note: Burst depth will be diminished when long exposure is enabled.
