The Nikon Coolpix P7100 firmware update 1.1 has been released for download, confirming that August 6 has been one of the company’s busiest days of recent times.
Nikon has decided to make August 6 a very special day. Several products have been announced officially and a firmware update has been released for a camera.
Nikon Coolpix P7100 firmware update 1.1 now available for download to fix several bugs
As the Nikon Coolpix P7100 firmware update 1.1 was being pushed for download, the company was announcing the 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, Coolpix L620 and S6600 cameras, and Speedlight SB-300 flash gun.
Now that all of these products are official, it is time to talk about the recent update for one of the company’s older Coolpix cameras.
The P7100 has been released a couple of years ago, in August 2011. It features a 10.1-megapixel CCD image sensor, tilting LCD screen, 720p video recording with stereo sound support, RAW shooting, and a 28-200mm f/2.8-5.6 lens (35mm equivalent) with Vibration Reduction technology.
Nikon Coolpix P7100 firmware update 1.1 changelog
The changelog of the firmware update says that a bug, causing RAW images captured in portrait orientation mode not to rotate when being reviewed with the “Record” setting on Auto, has been fixed.
Moreover, if the photos had been captured and reviewed in the same conditions as above, then they would have displayed the wrong orientation. This was a bug and it was fixed.
Using the multi-selector on the camera’s back to review a gallery containing both images and films was causing the camera to circle through files without stopping. This bug has also been repaired in firmware version 1.1.
Photographers shooting with the Self-Timer “On” in Auto Bracketing mode with either Tv or Sv’s self-timer option set to “Stay in self-timer mode” noticed that the autofocus would stop working sometimes. Nikon has taken care of this problem, as well.
Last but not least, when shooting in any of the NRW (RAW) image quality settings with Continuous mode set to Continuous, Long Exposure NR turned “On”, and using the self-timer, noise would have been visible if the shutter speed had been set to 1/4th of a second or slower. The same issue would have appeared if the Long Exposure NR had been set to “Auto” and switched itself “On” due to a slow-enough shutter speed.
