Addenda to the Nikon Guide to Digital Photography with the D100
Please note the following additions to the Nikon Guide to Digital Photography with the D100 with the release of version 2.00 of 
the D100 camera fi rmware:
Support for Mac OS (pp. 59, 141, 170–171, 172–174)
From fi rmware version 2.00, the D100 supports Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), allowing Nikon Capture 3 Camera Control to be 
used with Macintosh computers (Mac OS X version 10.1.3 or later or Mac OS 9.0.4, 9.1, or 9.2).  Camera Control can be used to 
adjust camera settings from your computer, save photographs directly to your computer’s hard disk, and download user-defi ned 
tone curves to the camera (see pages 59 and 141 of the Nikon Guide to Digital Photography with the D100).  Note that Nikon 
Capture 3 version 3.5 or later (available separately) is required, and that the camera USB protocol (see below) must be set to PTP.
Choosing a Color Mode (pp. 60–61, 142)
Photographs taken in Mode II include an embedded ICC profi le, ensuring that the correct color-space settings can be selected au-
tomatically when the images are opened in Adobe Photoshop™ or in other applications that support color management (see the 
documentation provided with the application for details).  Together with its wider gamut, this makes Mode II an excellent choice 
for images that will be retouched or processed before use.  Note, however, that while the system for recording Mode II images is 
based on Exif and DCF, it is not in strict conformity with these standards.  Mode I or Mode III is recommended when taking pho-
tographs that will be viewed on other cameras or Exif/DCF-compatible devices, or that will be printed using ExifPrint, the direct 
printing option on some household printers, or kiosk printing or other commercial print services.  For information on whether your 
printer or print service supports ExifPrint, refer to the documentation provided with your printer or speak to your photofi nisher.  For 
best results, use Nikon View 5 or Nikon Capture 3, which make an excellent addition to any imaging workfl ow.  Nikon Capture 3 is 
unique in its ability to directly edit NEF fi les without affecting the image quality of the original, and belongs at the fi rst stage of any 
production workfl ow involving image editing software.
Custom Settings 25 and 26 (pp. 144, 160)
The menus for Custom Settings 25 and 26 are now as follows:
The Setup Menu (pp. 161, 172–174)
The setup menu (pp. 161–166) now contains a USB option that allows you to choose the USB protocol used when the camera is 
connected to a computer (pp. 172–174).  Before connecting the camera, choose a USB protocol according to your computer’s oper-
ating system and whether you will be using Nikon Transfer (available in both Nikon View 5 and Nikon Capture 3) or Nikon Capture 3 
Camera Control.  Two protocols are available: Mass Storage and PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol).
If PTP is selected, you will not need to remove the camera from the system as described on page 174 of the Nikon Guide to Digital 
Photography with the D100
.  Instead, you can turn the camera off and disconnect the cable after verifying that “PC” is no longer 
displayed in the camera control panel or viewfi nder.
File Names for Voice Memos Recorded Using the MB-D100
Voice memos recorded using the MB-D100 multi-function battery pack (available separately) are stored on the camera memory 
card as audio fi les with names of the form “DSC_nnnn.WAV”.
