"Firmware Updates for J1 and V1 bodies"

Hello,

Nikon releases new firmware for the V1 and J1: v1.10

New is FT1 support and PixelMapping.

I didn't understand PixelMapping so I contacted Nikon.

PixelMapping is a procedure that could only be done in a Nikon support centre before. Now you do it yourself.
What it does is deactivate pixels that are behaving bad and let the surrounding pixels take over that job.
It is a 1 way proces: the function can only DEactivate pixels, it cannot REactivate them, so use is only when needed.When too much pixels are closed down the only way out is a sensor replacement.

Nikon says to use it when you see lighter spots in your picture.

dm1dave,
Thanks for the link for the firmware update!

I needed that because my flash has been over exposing at close range

and the firmware update took care of the problem.

I thought the SB-N5 was my problem.

There is also a firmware update for the GPS unit. The update is installed by USB connection to a Mac or PC rather than through the camera.

This update fixes a bug where the GPS unit sends the wrong time to the camera. The camera time is often set some hours in the past, possibly related to when the GPS was last used, until the GPS gets a new signal lock. To avoid the bug I had set my camera not to set time from GPS until I learned of this update.

This is the NL site, seems ok for all:

https://nikoneurope-nl.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/52231

Looks like a rather minor update, wonder why they made 1. It just seems to fix a bug of some duplicate pictures in SLOWMO films at 1200 bps.

Cannot imagine Nikon would bring out a new firmware for just this obscure bug. Hope there is more (will dig into the menu's ...)

so basically, instead of replacing faulty sensors they have devised a way to remove broken sensors and replace with estimated localized regions

I'm sorry, I don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about.

What "faulty sensors"?

And what do you mean with the other lines?

If you mean the pixel utility: that was always there, but now you can do it yourself and don't need a Nikon Repair Centre.

It's common to all digital camera's. But Nikon offers a way to "repair".

I'm sorry to say that I think you look in a negative way to the Nikon 1 series.
I (and I think many more out here) would gladly help you, but with this attitude you won't generate much help.

Don't be angry, please, we're just trying.

A faulty pixel or single light sensor here and there would not be enough to warrant replacement of the entire chip. The replacement decision probably would depend on how many pixels (often described as “hot” pixels) were bad and how they might be concentrated. They often or usually show up as bright red, green, or blue (RGB) spots in the image that is projected on your computer monitor. Single defective pixels are difficult to spot except at high magnifications so are not always consequential; they usually form an R, G or B colored + sign. Also, in some cases they might show up only in long exposures. I believe there have been discussion on this in other forums and threads; you could do a search.

Mapping eliminates defective or “hot” pixels where screen replacement is not warranted. I do not believe any of my digital cameras have ever had a hot pixel on the chip, although one camera did have a single defective pixel on the screen. I have, however, seen images from, I believe, a D90 that had several “hot” pixels. They were of concern because we were looking for small splotches of color in the images at the time, and the reds we were looking for were close in color value to the defective red pixels. I put “hot” in quotes because I don’t recall if that is the precise terminology for this type of defect.
