Nikon has released a new firmware update to its 10.1MP high-end enthusiast compact the Coolpix P7000 . The firmware update, v1.1, speeds up raw shooting by reducing image recording time. They also state that lens control has been optimized to reduce instances of the "Initializing lens. Cannot focus" message being displayed. It fixes a rare issue that prevented zoom operation. It also corrects an issue that would cause the LCD display to exhibit blown-out highlights when the shutter-release button was depressed halfway while Active D-Lighting was enabled.

We generally recommend installing the latest firmware updates for your camera, so you can get the most out of your gear. For more information on firmware updates for a specific camera, visit the manufacturer's Web site. Before installing any firmware upgrade, always take the time to read through all of the documentation and follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
