Nikon has released firmware version 1.1 for the Coolpix P80 super-zoom digital camera. Available now via Nikon USA's support website, the update corrects issues with Vibration Reduction and Distortion Control.
Modifications Enabled with version 1.1 firmware
- When shooting with the "Vibration Reduction" item in the setup menu set to "On", vibration reduction did not always function in the following situations. This issue has been resolved.
- When the camera was turned on, or with 'recovery from standby mode' (activated by the "Auto-off" function), and the electronic viewfinder display enabled by pressing the monitor button.
- When the camera was turned on, or with recovery from standby mode (activated by the "Auto-off" function), and the camera connected to a televison or other video device via the supplied audio/video cable (EG-CP14)
- When shooting with the "Distortion Control" option set to on, excessive correction was sometimes applied. This issue has been resolved.
