Good they are updating firmware..

But these are like 2 features who uses?

I agree, but there is always something good about getting off that v1.00 firmware.

You risk two things by upgrading firmware:

1) Firmware team brain fart. This is not uncommon.

2) Bricking the camera. It happens.

The features they are fixing are so obscure that the firmware team did not test them adequately in the first place. Right?

It is a personal choice whether to apply a firmware update, but the stock advice for BIOS and firmware is always the same -- if you do not experience the issues described, the risk is not worth it.
