Firmware update C version 1.01 for the Nikon D3300 released

Nikon released firmware update C version 1.01 for the D3300 DSLR camera that adds support for the new AF-P Nikkor lenses:

  • AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55​mm f/3.5–5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55​mm f/3.5–5.6G lenses are now supported. Vibration reduction can be enabled or disabled using the new Optical VR option in the photo SHOOTING MENU, which is displayed when an AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55​mm f/3.5–5.6G VR lens is attached.
  • The following issues have been addressed:
    • Turning Auto info display off had no effect at focal lengths over 55 mm.
    • Choosing negative values for Exposure compensation in the RETOUCH MENU > NEF (RAW) processing display did not have the desired effect.

The price of the D3300 has dropped significantly in the past few months - you can now get a refurbished body with lens for $309 or a two lens kit for $369 (use coupon code COMPOSE3RDS).

    Im curious if or when AF-P will be bundled with D3300. Or D3500 is coming?

    • probably both

      • CaMeRa QuEsT

        Nikon now kits out their remaining NOS D3200 and D7100 and all their refurbished D3100, D3200, D5100 and D5200 with the VRII, so it’s very likely that it will be put out of production after the AF-P twins come online and they’ll kit out all budget and NOS DX bodies with the new lenses from then on.

        • PhilK

          Probably so.

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    Yeeehaaa! At last hackers can start getting busy on this gem! (and the D5300, D5500 and D7200 after they too get their AF-P FW update…)

    • Lcky

      I did a lot of work with d800 video and the hacked video quality was a biig step up in post, my thoughts exactly!

    • Duke Sweden

      We got a loooooooooong wait. I asked about a hack for the D5500. Nobody responds except other people waiting for hacks. Updating the patcher isn’t Simeon’s pet project anymore, it seems.

  • CaMeRa QuEsT

    Some wishful thinking: Will LV AF speed and behavior improve substantially on the D3300 with these new lenses?

    • PhilK

      I think that is likely. Nikon claims it will improve focus speed.

      Tho I’d guess they will also introduce some new bodies with improved LV AF too. Maybe even by CP+ next month.

    I had a d3300 for sometime… zooming in to images and scanning was choppy and too slow… I hope this has been resolved

    • Kim

      You’re right! I had the D3200 before my D3300, and the old one was fast and smooth on both the playback and live view zooming in.
      My new D3300 most definately is not.

      • CaMeRa QuEsT

        I guess that’s the trade off you have to pay for hugely improved video IQ and 1080p60/50 capability.

  • Nikon User

    They still don’t mention Stop Supporting Some Non OEM Batteries that they broke for other models.

    • Kim

      Nikon has no obligation to support every piece of crap someone might throw toghether to make a dime.

      • Frodo Boggins

        A lot of these batteries come from the same factories that Nikon officially uses. Its just a shakedown by Nikon.

  • AYWY

    We’re expecting firmware updates for every body for use with the new AF-P lenses I suppose? Nah, I think Nikon have to release a “not supported cameras” list or something.

    • tomanatura

      They did, only D3300, D5300, D5500 will be supported.
