From Nikon:
 
Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.01 to 1.02
 
  • Addressed an issue that sometimes caused errors with certain UHS-II SD memory cards. As we were able to confirm that these were read errors arising not in the camera but in the cards themselves, we addressed the issue with a work-around that switches temporarily to UHS-I mode when a card-side error occurs in UHS-II mode. The camera switches back to UHS-II mode when turned off and then on again or when the standby timer restarts. Card-side read errors may still occur after the update, albeit very infrequently.

From Nikon:
 
Further advance of Nikon D5 digital SLR camera performance through expanded functions
 
Tokyo - Nikon Corporation has released new firmware, C: Ver. 1.10, that expands the functions of its flagship Nikon FX-format digital SLR camera, the D5.
 
The D5 has been extremely well received on all fronts, winning such globally prestigious photo and imaging awards as the TIPA Awards 2016, and the Camera GP (Grand Prix) 2016 Readers Award (sponsored by Japan's Camera Journal Press Club), which is selected through voting by users.
 
Nikon has released new firmware for the D5, C: Ver. 1.10, that enhances D5 performance even further. The new firmware offers a major upgrade to the camera's shooting capabilities, delivering four key improvements. First, the maximum recording time of movies, including for 4K UHD movies, is extended, and three functions — Flicker reduction for still images, 9-point dynamic-area AF AF-area mode, and Electronic VR for movies — are added. In addition to these four major changes, some additional updates* have been applied to the new firmware.
 
Details regarding "additional updates" are provided on the firmware's free download page (Nikon Download Center).
 
Release overview
 
The new firmware is available for download from June 23, 2016. It can be downloaded free of charge from the following URL.
 
New firmware for the D5, C: Ver.1.10
 
Four major improvements
 
1. Maximum movie recording time, including for 4K UHD movies, extended to 29 min. 59 s
 
Movies up to 29 minutes 59 seconds in length can now be recorded at all Movie quality and Frame size/frame rate settings. The new firmware increases the maximum recording time of even 4K UHD (3840x2160) movies from 3 minutes to 29 minutes 59 seconds. In addition, movies are recorded to up to eight separate files, each of which has a file size of up to 4 GB. Separate movie files can be combined to create a single movie using ViewNX-Movie Editor.
 
The maximum recording time for 4K UHD time-lapse movies is 3 minutes.
 
2. Flicker reduction for still images added for more stable exposure under lighting that flickers
 
When shooting under fluorescent and some other types of artificial lighting, flickering may cause uneven exposure in parts of images and/or variations in exposure and color reproduction characteristics between individual images captured continuously or in quick succession. We have equipped the new firmware with a Flicker reduction function for still images*1 that reduces these effects. When Flicker reduction is enabled, the camera detects peak brightness as light flickers and automatically times shutter release with these peaks in brightness for stable exposure and color reproduction characteristics. This function is effective when continuous shooting is used for indoor sporting events or similar situations captured at fast shutter speeds*2
 
*1 Still images captured during viewfinder photography (not available with mirror up mode).
*2 The continuous shooting rate may decrease.

 
3. 9-point dynamic-area AF AF-area mode added for focusing on a limited portion of a moving subject
 
With dynamic-area AF, the camera focuses based on information from surrounding focus points* if the subject briefly leaves the focus point selected by the photographer. The D5 originally supported 25-point, 72-point and 153-point dynamic-area AF. A 9-point dynamic-area AF option has been added with the new firmware. This new option is effective for focusing on a more specific portion of a moving subject.
 
* In dynamic-area AF with 9, 25 or 72 points, the number of focus points actually used may be fewer than 9, 25 or 72, depending on the selected primary focus point.
 
4. Electronic vibration reduction function, effective with hand-held recording, added (for HD and full-HD*1 movie recording)
 
The new firmware has been equipped with an Electronic VR function that reduces the effects of camera shake with hand-held recording of movies in the FX- or DX-based movie formats (image areas)*2. The effects of camera shake in three directions — vertical (up and down), horizontal (left and right), and rotational (around the center of the lens) — are reduced. This function is effective when recording movies in places or situations in which use of a tripod is prohibited or inconvenient, or when there simply isn't time to set one up. In addition, electronic VR can be used in combination with the optical vibration reduction (VR) built into a NIKKOR lens for more effective reduction of the effects of camera shake.
 
*1 Not available with 1920 x 1080 crop settings.
*2 The angle of view will be reduced slightly.
 
The effects of electronic VR are also reflected when photos are captured during movie recording (Live frame grab).
When Electronic VR is enabled, the maximum sensitivity allowed is ISO 102400, even if ISO sensitivity is set to Hi 0.3 or higher.

    • The OS X edition of the Wireless Transmitter Utility would not function as expected when used to edit or add profiles for a camera connected via USB if Password protection was enabled for wireless or Ethernet LANs in the Network > Network settings menu.
    • The camera would sometimes not correctly display pictures created using the Trim option in the RETOUCH MENU.
    • If playback zoom was activated while the memory card access lamp was lit, the picture would sometimes not display correctly or the camera would zoom in on a point other than the active focus point if:
      • RAW Slot 1 - JPEG Slot 2 was selected for Role played by card in Slot 2 in the PHOTO SHOOTING MENU,
      • On was selected for Image review in the PLAYBACK MENU,
      • Memory cards were inserted in Slots both 1 and 2, and
      • The NEF (RAW) and JPEG images were different sizes
* Details can be found in an updated edition of the camera manual.

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.

  • 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 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.

Function that has been added:

  • HTTP server mode - Use to view the pictures on the camera memory card, or to take photographs, from the web browser on a computer or iPhone.

Functions that have been renamed:

  • FTP upload mode (previously Transfer mode (FTP)) - Use to upload photos and movies from camera memory cards, or to upload photos as they are taken, to an ftp server.
  • Image transfer mode (previously Transfer mode (PC)) - Use to upload photos and movies from camera memory cards, or to upload photos as they are taken, to a computer.
  • Camera control mode (previously PC mode) - Use to control the camera from a computer running Camera Control Pro 2 (available separately) and save photos and movies directly to the computer.

  • Do not load settings data saved with A:1.05/ B1.03 or earlier using the Save/ Load settings option in the setup menu after updating D4 firmware to A:1.10 / B:1.10. Settings data saved with D4 A:1.05/ B:1.03 or earlier is not compatible with D4 A and B firmware Ver. 1.10.
  • When transferring images recorded to a memory card with a capacity greater than 128 GB to a computer using a card reader or similar device, be sure that the computer's operating system and the card reader support capacities greater than 128 GB. If they do not support capacities greater than 128 GB, it may not be possible to transfer images in this way. As support for memory cards with capacities greater than 128 GB is provided with D4 A:1.10 / B:1.10 firmware, images may be transferred by connecting the camera to a computer via USB cable.

Nikon has updated the firmware for several cameras to address a EN-EL14a battery issue.
 
From Nikon:
 
Modifications enabled with this firmware upgrade

  • Remaining battery charge is now accurately detected for Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL14a. By upgrading firmware to [current version], EN-EL14a performance is maximized so that more images can be captured (battery performance) than when an EN-EL14 is used. With firmware [previous firmware version] and earlier, the number of images that can be captured (battery performance) when an EN-EL14a is used is less than when an EN-EL14 is used.

Modifications enabled with this firmware upgrade

  • When NRW (RAW) images recorded in vertical (portrait) orientation at a Record orientation setting of Auto were played back, images did not rotate as the camera was rotated, even when Rotate tall was set to On. This issue has been resolved.
  • When images captured in vertical (portrait) orientation at a Record orientation setting of Auto were played back, and playback zoom was applied with the camera rotated for vertical display with Rotate tall set to On, certain operations caused images to display irregularly or in the incorrect orientation. This issue has been resolved.
  • When using the rotary multi selector to display the next image from the camera's memory, or a memory card, containing both photos and movies, operation sometimes seemed to stick and continuously advanced through images. This issue has been resolved.
  • After shooting using the self-timer with Auto bracketing set to Tv or Sv with Self-timer: after release set to Stay in self-timer mode, autofocus stopped functioning. This issue has been resolved.
  • When Image quality was set to NRW (RAW), NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic, and Continuous was set to Continuous, noise occurred in photos taken using the self-timer at a shutter speed of 1/4 s or slower with Long exposure NR set to On. Similarly, noise also occurred in photos taken using the self-timer at a shutter speed slow enough to activate long exposure NR with Long exposure NR set to Auto. This issue has been resolved.
