New firmware updates for the Nikon D3400 and D5600 cameras released


Nikon released new firmware updates for the Nikon D3400 and D5600 cameras related to the latest version of SnapBridge (I mentioned this over the weekend):

Fixed an issue that resulted in unreliable connections between the camera and the iOS 10.2 version of the SnapBridge app.

Here are the download links:

    What about the D500?
    I thought the new SnapBridge needed a new firmware for the D500

      I think the new firmware for the D500 will come in a couple of days. With all know restrictions – energy consuming and slow file transfer of full size images, somewhat unstable Bluetooth paring, very limited options for remote photography, energy comsuming transfer of GPS date from the phone to the camera – the new app version 1.2.0 works with the existing firmware 1.11 on the D500 as before. Pairing between the camera and the phone works better, when the C2 and C4 time settings are set to values > 1 min.

    Allowing them NOT to work with the latest 3rd party lenses?

    The Bluetooth pairing on the D500 may take it’s time. There is s lengthy thread https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59089094 describing and discussing this.

    Today, I updated my D5600 to the latest firmware that was just released. Pairing still failed the first time I tried it, but once established, the pairing seems to persist now, and my camera and phone appear to be connected when in proximity. On the downside, the software is still utter crap and does not work well. The primary reason that I want SnapBridge is for geotagging. The camera does add geotags, but they’re VERY inaccurate. The phone is spot on with its location, but the camera is often using a GPS location that is 30-60 minutes old, often using a much older geotag even though a newer one is available.

    Below is a dump of my exif data for multiple files that I took today to test out Snapbridge (my phone was continually within about 5 feet of the camera, and I was in constant motion in a vehicle). Note that ‘TimeZone=-08:00’.

    You’ll see that DSC_0017 was taken at 23:46:55Z, but the camera used a 23:37:50.38Z geotag instead of the 23:44:22.45Z geotag that was obviously available (as it was used in the very next photo). In this case, we got a very stale geotag (over 9 minutes old) even though there was a less stale geotag available to the camera (2.5 minutes old). 2.5 minutes old is still not ideal, but it’s certainly better than 9 minutes.

    As an even clearer example, take a look at DSC_0034. In the case of DSC_0034, the geotag that was used was almost an hour old, but there was a geotag available that was “only” 7 minutes old at that point. Obviously, a 7 minute old geotag is not acceptable, but it’s MUCH better than one that is an hour old.

    At least with the D5300, it was obvious which photos needed manual geotagging since they were missing tags. Now, we get geotags on all files, but we have zero confidence in their correctness.

    Unacceptable!
