Nikon has updated the firmware for the 1 V1 mirrorless camera and has released an update for the NX 2 program.
Although it replaced the 1 V1 with a new shooter, Nikon has updated the firmware of this camera in order to fix a bug which affected the users after changing a lens. On the other hand, the Capture NX 2.4.0 update is now available for download for both Windows and Mac OS X users.
Nikon 1 V1 firmware update 1.21 changelog
Because this is a minor update, there is only one minor change available for Nikon 1 V1 users. The Japan-based company decided to look into an issue which caused the camera monitor or the electronic viewfinder to move the image on the display. This bug could have been reproduced immediately after attaching a new lens and turning on the display.

Nikon Capture NX 2.4.0 update
Launched last October, Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8, was not supported by Nikon’s program. However, as of version 2.4.0, all versions of Windows 8, including Professional and Enterprise, are supported. Nikon says that the program is best used in desktop mode and that touch-based gestures are not supported for the time being.
As for Mac OS X, Nikon added support for high-resolution Retina displays. The latest versions of the MacBook Pro come packed with such displays, allowing users to see photos with improved pixel-for-pixel accuracy.
The changelog applies to both Windows and Mac computers. Nikon Capture NX 2.4.0 now supports RAW images taken with the recently-introduced J3 and S1 mirrorless cameras, and boasts white balance modifications and a bug fix for users who experienced issues when trying to view JPEG files.
According to Nikon, white balance support has been extended in Capture NX 2.4.0. Underwater effect is now available under New WB, but it supports only RAW images taken with cameras that come packed with Underwater white balance effect. Capture NX 2.4.0 is available for download on both Windows and Macs.
