Firmware Update 1.1 for Nikon Coolpix P7100 released


Nikon released firmware update 1.1 for the Nikon Coolpix P7100 compact camera. This comes as a surprise to me, since the P7100 has been discontinued (and replaced by the P7700) for a while and Nikon is not big on releasing firmware updates for older products. Here is the list of modifications:

  • When NRW (RAW) images recorded in vertical (portrait) orientation at a Record orientation setting of Auto were played back, images did not rotate as the camera was rotated, even when Rotate tall was set to On. This issue has been resolved.
  • When images captured in vertical (portrait) orientation at a Record orientation setting of Auto were played back, and playback zoom was applied with the camera rotated for vertical display with Rotate tall set to On, certain operations caused images to display irregularly or in the incorrect orientation. This issue has been resolved.
  • When using the rotary multi selector to display the next image from the camera's memory, or a memory card, containing both photos and movies, operation sometimes seemed to stick and continuously advanced through images.  This issue has been resolved.
  • After shooting using the self-timer with Auto bracketing set to Tv or Sv with Self-timer: after release set to Stay in self-timer mode, autofocus stopped functioning.  This issue has been resolved.
  • When Image quality was set to NRW (RAW), NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic, andContinuous was set to Continuous, noise occurred in photos taken using the self-timer at a shutter speed of 1/4 s or slower with Long exposure NR set to On. Similarly, noise also occurred in photos taken using the self-timer at a shutter speed slow enough to activate long exposure NR with Long exposure NR set to Auto. This issue has been resolved.

      Oh, so big Troll you are! But you are correct, you know… They shouldn’t spend efforts on that…OK. They have very pristine lenses line for V. Just make a pristine sensor for it! Do not wait for next RX 100-3!

        Nah man, I’m getting myself nothing but the best; and that is the Hasselblad Lunar 😀 heh

    Who cares? Move on. Nothing here.

    • Will

      Those of us who own a P7100 care. You move on.

  • Jim

    Selfish lot you are! I’m happy to update my P7100.

    My heart leaped until I read the fixes. I was hopeful they would fix the zoom and replay function. I.E. let me stay zoomed in and let me use one of the untold dials to see the next image! None of the issues they have ‘fixed’ have ever effected my use of the P7100.

    It`s a joke. After opening the exe-file there is the firmware.bin with the date of July 7th 2013. Exactly a few days later my P7100 joined the update.- I don`t know who did this mistake giving it as an NEW information. Funny, the german Nikon page isn`t showing anything of this wrong information.
    There are all the new updates (for example D800).
