KodakKodak releases firmware update 4.3.1 for the DCS Pro 14n. The new following problems are fixed: A custom white balance issue, an intermittent problem with black images has been fixed and a compatibility issue with newer Microdrives. Additionally, an abundant amount of new features is made avialable with this firmware update. Kodak releases at the same time software updates for Kodak DCS Photo Desk version 3.1.0 and the Kodak Camera Manager version 3.1.0. Some new features are: Improved in-camera JPG color and improved DCR raw file color when using KODAK PROFESSIONAL DCS Photo Desk version 3.1 or later, Improved DCF file system. File names and folder name structure is unchanged but important changes in the way the camera handles folders.
Folder names are of the form NNNXXXXX, where NNN is the folder number, and XXXXX is the user specified name. All folders with the same name on both storage cards are merged in review mode. When the NAV button is pressed, the folder list displays the folder name and related storage card. Image file names are of the form AAAA####, where #### is the image number (0000 to 9999) and the AAAA is the camera's unique serial number based alphanumeric prefix. When the image number rolls over from 9999 to 0000, the AAAA alphanumeric prefix is incremented, providing image file names which normally will never repeat over the life of the camera.

Using the Raw/JPEG/Raw+JPEG selections, up to 4 copies of an image may be stored on the 2 cards. In review mode, these are all treated as a single image, therefore deleting or tagging an image will delete or tag all copies of that image. The thumbnail displayed on the cameras LCD is chosen in this order of availability: DCR on the CF card, DCR on the MM card, JPG on the CF card and JPG on the MM card. When deleting images, all DCR and JPG versions along with all associated sound files on both cards are deleted at the same time. Note: To retain duplicate or back-up images be sure to remove the second card before deleting images.
When tagging or untagging images, all DCR and JPG versions along with all associated sound files on both cards are tagged or untagged at the same time.

The Folder/File Naming menu has changed to Continuous / Auto Restart / Manual Restart. Continuous Mode: When the camera is turned on, a new card inserted, or after a card format operation, the camera will search for the last used image folder. If the folder is found, new images are stored in that folder. Image numbers will continue sequentially. If the folder is not found, a folder with the last used name will be created. Image numbers will continue sequentially. Auto Restart: When the camera is turned on, a new card is inserted, or after a card format operation, the camera will search for the last used image folder. If the folder is found, new images are stored in that folder. Image numbers will continue sequentially. For example, if the last used folder name was 145JOB32 and the last image number stored was F8BC3478.DCR. A new card is inserted and folder 145JOB32 was found. The next image captured is stored in folder 145JOB32 and the image name will be F8BC3479.DCR If the folder is not found, a new folder will be created. The image number's AAAA alphanumeric prefix will be incremented and the image number will be reset to 0001. For example, if folders 105JOB32, 120JOB32, 121JOB32 exist and none of these folders were the last used, the new folder created will be 122JOB32. The next image captured is stored in newly created folder 122JOB32 and the image name will be F8BD0001.DCR. Manual Restart: When the Manual Restart command is given a new folder will be created. The folder name's NNN prefix will be incremented. The image number's AAAA alphanumeric prefix will be incremented and the image number will be reset to 0001. For example, if the last used folder name was 145JOB32 and the last image number stored was F8BC3478.DCR. After a Manual Restart command the next image captured is stored in newly created folder 146JOB32 and the image name will be F8BD0001.DCR.

A new Folder Limit option has been added to the Folder/File Naming menu. This allows the maximum number of images in a folder to be set to 10,000 or 100. The default is 10,000. DCR and JPG images captured to the same folder are treated as one image. For example, when set to 100 images per folder, the camera will allow 200 images (100 RAW and 100 JPG) to be stored in a single folder. Image numbering is not reset to 0001 when rolling over to a new folder.

The Nav Bar works as before when there are less than 100 images in a folder. When a folder has more than 100 images, the Nav Bar will be solid gray and have markers for marks every 25 images.

Added "Never" selection to "Meter Off Time" under the custom setting menu. When Set to "Never" the cameras light meter will not enter power save mode. Note: This setting will consume power at a higher rate.

Revised Japanese and German translations and revised White Balance icons associated with Japanese user interface.

Added feature "Exposure Bias": This allows the camera to be set with an exposure bias tag ranging from -.3 to +.3 in 1/10 f-stop increments. The Exposure Bias setting will not impact the exposure settings of the camera body's light metering system. Instead, when shooting RAW files, the Exposure bias setting is interpreted by Kodak Professional DCS Photo Desk software and applied upon opening the images on the host computer system. When capturing JPEG files the Exposure Bias setting will be applied to the image. This feature can be used to balance exposure characteristics among multiple DCS Pro 14n Digital Cameras.
