  • An issue has been fixed that caused the AF area mode setting to revert to the default setting when the monitor and exposure meters turns off automatically (auto meter off) or the camera was turned off in a Digital Vari-Program mode.
  • Correction of an issue that caused the ISO auto feature to be disabled, when a two-button reset operation was performed if the ISO sensitivity was set to any option other than ISO 200.
  • When attempting to edit images, which have already been edited using a computer, using options in the D40's retouch menu, the camera sometimes froze. Therefore, images that have been edited using a computer can no longer be edited using the camera.
