Updates for Nikon P1, P2, S6 digicams|
(Thursday, July 19, 2007 - 12:48 EDT)
Nikon USA has released updated firmware and software for three of its digital camera models, when used in concert with certain operating systems.
Nikon Wireless Camera Setup Utility v2.1 is available in two versions - one compatible with 32-bit Windows Vista (specifically the Home Basic / Home Premium / Home Business / Home Enterprise and Home Ultimate versions), and one for Intel-based Mac OS X (versions 10.3 to 10.4.9).
To use the software, a firmware update may also required depending on your camera model. Nikon Coolpix S6 firmware version 1.1 is for both Windows Vista and Mac OS X users, and the only change in the firmware is support for the new Wireless Camera Setup Utility release.
Users of the Nikon Coolpix P1 and Coolpix P2 will also find a new version 1.1 of firmware for each camera, but only if using the Windows Vista operating system. Operation of the new Wireless Camera Setup Utility with the Coolpix P1 and P2 on Mac OS X is "not guaranteed", notes Nikon's FAQ.
