Nikon P7000 Firmware 1.1 update

In case you missed it, Nikon has released firmware version 1.1 for their top-end compact digital camera, the P7000.

I just updated the firmware, and I can report a significant reduction in file-save time for raw (NRW) files.  What used to take 5 seconds now takes less than two seconds.

Official updates with this firmware version:

  • Image recording time at image quality settings that include NRW (RAW) has been reduced.
  • Lens control has been optimized to reduce the frequency with which the “Initializing lens. Cannot focus.” message is displayed.
  • An issue that, in some rare cases, prevented zoom operation has been resolved.
  • An issue that caused the monitor display to exhibit a loss of detail in highlights (blown highlights) when the shutter-release button was pressed halfway with Active D-Lighting enabled has been resolved.

  1. I was ready to jump on this camera after reading your original review and handling it at PDN . I got spooked by the complaints and then I shot off a quick email to nikon about firmware and a day later firmware 1.1. I am heading into B&H tomorrow to most-likely seal the deal. Thanks Jason.
