    What are latest firmware versions for D3500?

    I just got a refurbished D3500 with an AF-P DX 18-55mm VR kit lens from NikonUSA as part of the recent sale on refurbished items. I checked the firmware versions that are currently in the camera which are:

    C: 1.0
    LD: 2.018
    LF: 1.0

    I then went to the Support website to make sure they are the latest versions. There is no/nada/zip information on D3500 firmware.

    While I'm inclined to believe that a refurb would have the latest FW, I'd like to confirm that. Anyone here with a D3500 who can confirm that these are the latest versions?

    Thanks

    Message on the page says, “if camera is not in the list, there have been no updates issued yet”

    Thanks for that. I understand the implication of the statement but it doesn't really answer the question. The D3500 has been around for a while. Surely somebody here owns one and can look at their copy.

    A bit surprised! My 1-year-old D3500 says the firmware is:
    C: 1.0
    LD: 2.017
    LF: 1.0

    I went to Nikon site, but no firmware update available for D3500 or the two kit lenses with it. I suspect the LD (lens distortion) firmware '2.017' is latest for my kit lenses. But for your probably newer D3500 (despite refurbished), '2.018' could be the latest for other lenses? Not sure though, sorry.

    There is nothing in Nikon Message Center 2. It is found in the firmware updates section. It is found here:https://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/index.html and just so you know, Snapbridge is compatible with the D3500!

    Yeah, went there and checked for an hour and found nothing for D3500 firmware (C, LD, LF).

    My D3500 firmware says:
    C: 1.00
    LD: 2.017
    No LF firmware to be found.... so it looks I need an upgrade for both LD and LF, but it seems it is nowhere to be found?

    I am not certain the LF firmware can be updated by users. Every firmware update I have done for D80 - D7000 - D750 only had 2 files to update. Looking at Nikon support I only find 2 firmware files per DSLR that I randomly sample. The Lens Distortion firmware is 2.018 across most DSLR bodies and was issued exactly 1 year ago. The LD file is mainly updated for new lenses. Likely not something that will hinder you at all. If everybody is reporting version 1.0 firmware, then it is still the original release version and there has been no reason to write an update from Nikon yet. That is likely why they don't have the files available for download yet.

    Long story short: Don't fix something that is not broken.
