On 8/8/12 Nikon released updated firmware for the Nikon J1 and V1 cameras. You can download the firmware updates from these links. If you don't find the appropriate link for your nationality please visit your local Nikon website's download center.
Changes: - 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 1003200, Auto 100800, or Auto 100400 has been increased with shooting using the optional Speedlight SB-N5 to photograph subjects at close distances.
The following issues have 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.
I did the update for my V1 as well as the lens updates. The lens updates are supposed to shut the camera down when the lens is locked. It does not work on either my 10-30 or 30-110. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, do you have a "fix"? I am awaiting feedback from Nikon. Thanks for any help or info coming my way. Bas
Immediately after the camera was turned on after attaching a lens, shooting display in the camera monitor or electronic viewfinder (view through the lens) sometimes appeared to move. This issue has been resolved.
