    FYI: the firmware update on my P330 still tolerates a Lexar battery.

    I am interested to hear about the rumored p700 with 1″ sensor and 24-2000 mm equivelent lens.
    Is there any new info about this camera? Does this camera exist or was it an April fools joke?

    Updated P520, spare battery stops working now.

      Ha, this is the usual trick from Nikon.

      Hopefully you backed up your original firmware. Did you really need it, or did you just update it ’cause it was there?

  • Frank54321

    My P330 failed to power up occasionally ,hope its fixed with 1.1 ;Hahnel battery still works , cheers

    So I tried to fill out the Nikon 1 V3 questionnaire and it wouldn’t accept any comments in the box for comments, at the end. In the end I had to leave that section blank.
    Way to ensure no negative comments, Nikon.
