From Nikon:
 
WR-1 Firmware v.1.01
 
Changes from Firmware Version 1.00 to 1.01:
 
  • The D5 and D500 ISO sensitivity displays are now supported. If you are using two WR-1 units, one as a receiver and the other as a transmitter, update both to firmware version 1.01. If you are using the WR-1 with a WR-R10, have a Nikon-authorized service representative update the WR-R10 to firmware version 3.00.
  • When used as a transmitter to change ISO sensitivity for a receiving camera, the WR-1 no longer cycles continuously through the available values.
Cameras That Can Be Used to Update WR-1 Firmware
D5, D4S, D4 (*), Df, D810A, D810, D800 (*), D800E (*), D750, D500, D7200, and D7100 cameras
* Firmware versions “A” 1.10/“B” 1.10 or later. Firmware upgrades can also be performed for you by a Nikon-authorized service representative.

Wireless Remote Controller WR-R10 Firmware v.3.00
 
Firmware Ver. 3.00 upgrade details
 
Shooting using radio-controlled advanced wireless lighting (hereafter "radio AWL") requires a digital SLR camera and Speedlight that support radio AWL, as well as a WR-R10. However, WR-R10s running a version of firmware prior to Ver. 3.00 do not support radio AWL. The modifications indicated below, including support for radio AWL, will be enabled with this firmware upgrade.
 
Modifications enabled with firmware Ver. 3.00
 
  • Support for radio AWL has been added.
  • Support for the D5 and D500 function that enables Link Mode (Pairing or PIN) for radio AWL has been added.
  • Support for the D5 and D500 function that enables or disables the status LEDs on the WR-R10 has been added.
  • The maximum number of devices with which the WR-R10 can be paired has been changed from 64 devices to 32.
Requesting firmware upgrade
Those who would like to have their WR-R10 firmware upgraded to enable support for radio AWL may take or send their WR-R10 to a Nikon authorized Service Center where the firmware will be upgraded free of charge.
 
Please direct inquiries regarding this matter to your nearest Image Nikon Service Center or create a Free Service Returns Request.

This service supplies software that can be used to update the D4S camera “C” firmware to version 1.20.
 
Before proceeding, select Firmware version in the camera setup menu and check the camera firmware version. You will not need to download or install this update if the firmware listed above is already installed.
 
Modifications in firmware v1.10
 
  • Commander mode can now be selected for Custom Setting e3 (Optional flash) when an optional SB-500 flash unit is attached. *
  • The Auto and Flash white-balance options can now be used with the LED light on the optional SB-500 flash unit.
  • Auto white balance is now more consistent.
  • There is no longer a limit on the number of shots that can be taken in a single burst at shutter speeds of 4 s or faster when a continuous-release mode is selected in exposure mode S or M. *
  • There is no longer a limit on how long the shutter can remain open when “Time” is selected for shutter speed. *
  • We have changed how focus points are displayed in the viewfinder if the camera is rotated between “wide” (landscape) and “tall” (portrait) orientations with Focus point and AF-area mode selected for Custom Setting a10 (Store by orientation) and different focus points chosen in each orientation. We have also changed how focus points are displayed in the viewfinder if a lens focus function button is pressed with AF-area mode selected for Custom Setting f19 (Lens focus function buttons).
  • Some help text has been changed.
  • The following issues have been resolved:
  • If the user focused using the AF-ON button before shooting in continuous-release mode, the frame rate would drop under the following conditions: AF-S selected for focus mode, Single-point AF selected for AF-area mode, Focus selected for Custom Setting a2 (AF-S priority selection), and AF-ON only selected for Custom Setting a4 (AF activation).
  • When an AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E lens was attached, “Err” would be displayed in the top control panel and pictures could not be taken under some exposure conditions.

  • Images would not clear from the display if an optional WR-1 wireless remote controller was used with On selected for Image review in the playback menu.
  • The camera photo info display would not show the correct range for pictures taken with an optional flash unit in distance-priority manual flash mode (GN).
  • When pictures taken using a PC-E lens were viewed in Capture NX-D and other Nikon software, the Metadata would list the lens as type E rather than type D.
  • The photo information display for movies, movie stills, and photos taken with the Silent shutter-release option would sometimes list incorrect values for shutter speed, aperture, and ISO sensitivity.
  • If the camera was connected via HDMI to 4K a compatible TV, neither the camera nor the television would display menus correctly.
  • Volume sometimes could not be adjusted if indicators were hidden during movie playback.
  • If both XQD and CompactFlash cards were inserted in the camera when it was connected to a computer, the computer would not recognize the XQD card.

This service provides software for upgrading Nikon 1 AW1 firmware to A:1.10 / B:1.10:
 
  • This software allows for simultaneous upgrade of both A and B firmware to the latest version. If this latest firmware version is already installed on your camera, you need not proceed with download or installation of this Firmware upgrade.
  • This software is provided to those who agree to the terms of the software license at the bottom of this page. When the user selects the I agree - Begin download option outside of the frame, agreement to the terms of the software license is inferred and the user is bound by the terms of the Nikon Corporation (hereafter “Nikon”) License Agreement.
  • NOTE: The camera's internal clock may be reset when the firmware is upgraded. Should this occur, set the clock to the correct date and time after the firmware has been upgraded using the Time Zone and date itme in the setup menu.
  • Be sure that you have read and understand the terms of the license agreement before initiating download of this software.
Updates included with this release
