Nikon updates P6000 firmware

Nikon has announced upgraded the firmware for P6000 cameras.

Version 1.2 sees four improvements to the P6000. Firstly, when shooting in a user setting mode at an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic and distortion control is enabled, some JPEG images will no longer be corrupted as they had been previously.

Secondly, as distortion control cannot be used in conjunction with interval timer shooting, settings have now been modified so that they cannot be enabled simultaneously.

Another resolved issue is when shooting in P, S, A or M mode at an image size setting other than 13M 4224 ×3168 and with an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic, previously the image size setting switched to 13M 4224 ×3168 when the camera was turned off and then turned on again. With the new update, this will no longer happen.

Finally, version 1.2 also sees electric current consumption being reduced.

Updates have been released for both Windows and Mac computers, and are available to download from Nikon's website. You'll also find all the details on how to download it there as well so head over there if you're unsure of the process.
