PRESS SUMMARY

What is new/Content Description

- The D2H sometimes froze with uninterrupted navigation between a number of photographs while playback zoom was activated.  This problem has been corrected.

- When Image review in the playback menu was set to On and a photograph taken just after the camera stopped metering exposure (Auto meter-off activated) was displayed in the camera monitor, there was a significant delay before the shutter was released when the shutter-release button was pressed while this photo was displayed.  This problem has been corrected.
