Just when we were thinking that the Samsung NX1 and NX500 Tizen Smart Cameras were no longer receiving any firmware updates, then two drop all at once. The NX1 has now been updated to version 1.41 and the NX500 version 1.11. The upgrade was necessary to resolve a bluetooth connection issue with Android version 6.0 marshmallow. You also need to update the Android Samsung Camera Manager App to v1.6.07.160510 or later version in order to connect to the camera.
- Fixed Bluetooth connection problem with Smart phone (Android Marshmallow 6.0 version).
