Modifications/Note for Nikon DSLR D3100 Firmware Version A:1.02, B:1.01:

  • Remaining battery charge is now accurately detected for Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL14a.With A firmware Ver. 1.01/B firmware Ver. 1.01 or earlier, the number of images that can be captured (battery life) when an EN-EL14a is used is less than when an EN-EL14 is used. By upgrading A firmware to Ver. 1.02 and B firmware to Ver. 1.01, EN-EL14a performance is maximized so that more images can be captured (battery life) than when an EN-EL14 is used.
  • Number of shots possible with the EN-EL14a (rated capacity: DC 7.2 V, 1230 mAh; with D3100 A firmware Ver. 1.02/B firmware: Ver. 1.01)Single-frame release mode: Approximately 620 shots (CIPA standard*)Continuous release mode: Approximately 2350 shots (Nikon standard*)
