New firmware for Nikon 1 Mirrorless

Nikon has released a firmware update for the popular Nikon 1 J1 and V1 mirrorless cameras.

The improvements for this version are:

  • The exposure control program used with shooting in Smart Photo Selector mode, or still image shooting mode with Exposure mode set to P Programmed auto or Scene auto selector, has been revised for faster shutter speeds to prevent blurred subjects.
  • Auto white balance performance has been increased.
  • Exposure accuracy with ISO sensitivity set to Auto 100–3200, Auto 100–800, or Auto 100–400 has been increased with shooting using the optional Speedlight SB-N5 to photograph subjects at close distances.

The following issues have also been resolved.

  • An error message was sometimes displayed during interval timer shooting, preventing capture of the specified number of shots.
  • When the camera was turned on by releasing the retractable lens barrel lock on applicable lenses, there was sometimes a slight delay before the shutter could be released.
