Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
 
Some users of the COOLPIX W300 and the COOLPIX W300s digital camera have indicated that while shooting a series of images with their COOLPIX W300 or W300s camera to create a time-lapse movie, the focus position, which should lock when the first image is taken, may shift. Nikon’s review of this matter has confirmed that this issue may occur with some subjects under certain lighting conditions.
 
To address this issue Nikon is currently developing a firmware update that will resolve this issue. Please continue to check this website for further updates on this issue.
 
Once again, thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

From Nikon:
 
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
 
Nikon will offer a service for updating AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR firmware. Details of this firmware service are as follows.
 
Firmware update details
We have confirmed that when the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens is used with the D800, D800E, D810 or D810A, images captured at shutter speeds of around 1/125 s with the VR function enabled (NORMAL or SPORT) sometimes exhibit noticeable blur.
 
To address the occurrence of this, we are offering a service for updating your AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR firmware. When cameras other than the D800, D800E, D810, or D810A are used, this firmware update is not needed.
 
Updating lens firmware
Users of the D800, D800E, D810, or D810A who are concerned about this issue may take or send their lens to a Nikon authorized service center, where your lens firmware will be updated free of charge.
 
When sending your AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4 E PF ED VR lens to a Nikon authorized service center, the user must pay the cost of shipping to the service center, and Nikon will pay for return shipping.
 
Identifying lenses with which the firmware has already been updated
Firmware for lenses with a serial number of 205101 or later have already been updated.

To users of the Nikon D750 digital SLR camera
 
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
 
On December 29, 2014, we announced that we were looking into measures to address the issue reported by some users, namely that when photographing scenes in which an extremely bright light source, such as the sun or high-intensity lighting, is positioned near the top edge of the frame, flare with an unnatural shape sometimes occurs in images captured with the D750 digital SLR camera.
 
To correct this issue, Nikon will inspect and service at no cost the camera’s light-shielding components and adjust the AF sensor position. We plan to initiate this service at the end of January and will announce further details, including instructions for requesting servicing, shortly.
 
Please direct inquiries regarding this matter to Nikon Customer Relations by phone at 1-800-Nikon US (1-800-645-6687), 9AM–8PM EST, Monday to Friday (closed certain holidays) or online here.
 
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused, and ask for your continued patience and understanding.
 
Once again, thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
