Thank you all for visiting my blog!!!
Nikon release Firmware updates for his range of camers.. Click here to know more. Select the appropriate model and click the link to download the firmware and user manual for how to update. Also you can refer to one of my collegue’s blog.
Firmware is a read only set of instructions that is embedded in a hardware device to either add or improve function. Sometimes there are two parts to a Nikon firmware update labeled A or B. Some updates will perform either A or B, and others may perform A and B. Some updates will perform both A and B at the same time, and other will only do one at a time. Please read the instructions carefully before performing the update, as firmware updates are permanent and cannot be ‘undone’ outside of the service department. Newer firmware versions will overwrite older versions and will also include all previous update changes.
If you have a Windows Live account (or an old Hotmail account), then you have 25GB of free storage on SkyDrive. If you don’t have one, go and grap it. SkyDrive is a great way to store lots of files in the cloud for easy access remotely. Windows 7 and now defenetely on windows 8 will let you map your SkyDrive folders as network drives, making access even simpler.
How to map SkyDrive to your computer?
Windows 7 will let you map your SkyDrive to your local machine. How to do it? Here is the step
- Sign in to your Windows Live account.
- Get your ID from the address bar (Below showing how to get it)
- Click on the “Files” as shown below
- Now go to your Windows 7 computer
- Open My Computer, then select “Map network drive” near the top bar.
- Select the drive letter you want, then type the following under the “Folder bar”
- \\docs.live.net@SSL\ and then copy your CID number here \
- Check mark “Reconnect at logon”
- Click Finish
- Once you click finish, system will automatically attempt to log on to your SkyDrive.
- Next system will show you to enter SkyDrive credential.
- Enter the username and password and clik PK
Thats it..your SkyDrive is now mapped to your local machine.
Here you can rename the folder (If in case the language is not proper in you SkyDrive). What ever you do at the local “mapped” Skydrive, it will reflect in your SkyDrive as well.
Apps for SkyDrive?
Allmost all the device now support SkyDrive and it is free apps..you just name it..Windows, Mac, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPad…Click here to download it

The FT-1 Mount Adapter allows you to use certain legacy F-Mount NIKKOR lenses (those designed for use with Nikon D-SLR/SLR cameras) on the Nikon 1 V1 and J1. The Mount Adapter is attached to the Nikon 1 V1/J1 and the F-Mount NIKKOR lens then attached to the adapter. The FT-1 will add an angle of view of 2.7 times that of the F-Mount NIKKOR lens’ focal length.
The primary communication between the body, FT1 and lens is electronic, through two sets of contact pins. There is also a mechanical aperture lever within the F-mount portion of the FT1, plus an internal motor to move the lever too.
Supports 65 existing F-mount NIKKOR lenses …click here to view those support lense from Nikon.
AF/AE supported with AF-S lenses only. Autofocusing is possible when AF-S lenses are used. However, focus mode must be set to AF-S (Single AF) and AF-area mode is fixed at Single-point with only the center focus point used.
When using the FT-1 and a compatible AF-S NIKKOR F-Mount lens, users can take full advantage of the Nikon 1’s high-speed continuous shooting of 10/30/60 fps. (*When an AF-S lens is used. However, focus is locked with the first shot with continuous shooting.)
To use the FT-1, the Nikon 1 J1/V1 camera’s firmware must be updated to at least version 1.10.
