Four changes are listed in the release notes for Nikon P7000 firmware v1.1, which is available immediately for both Windows and Macintosh platforms. The new release reduces the recording time for images shot in .NRW raw format, reduces the frequency of the "Initializing lens. Cannot focus." error message during autofocus operation, fixes a problem which would prevent zoom operation in certain circumstances, and prevents a loss of highlight detail on the LCD display while half-pressing the shutter button with Active D-Lighting enabled.
Announced in September 2010, the Coolpix P7000 features an effective resolution of ten megapixels, and a stabilized 7.1x optical zoom lens with a useful 28mm wide angle. The Nikon P7000 also provides both an optical viewfinder and a high-res 3.0-inch LCD on which to frame and review images and movies. Data is stored on SD, SDHC, or SDXC cards, and power for the P7000 comes courtesy of a proprietary EN-EL14 lithium ion battery pack. The Nikon Coolpix P7000 also offers USB 2.0 High Speed data connectivity, and a mini HDMI high definition video output. The Coolpix P7000 went on sale in the USA from September 2010, priced at around $500. For more details, read our Nikon Coolpix P7000 preview.
