OVERVIEW

Coolpix 4500 firmware version 1.2 upgrade

The following issue has been corrected in this firmware upgrade.
When shooting using the MC-EU1 remote cord at an image-quality
setting of HI (no compression, TIFF) images appear as if they
are overlapping or sliced.

Coolpix 5700 firmware version 1.1 upgrade

The following issues have been addressed with the Coolpix 5700 firmware version 1.1 upgrade.

1. When the shooting data for RAW images was viewed with software such as Nikon View, “7” was
always displayed for the second digit in two-digit numbers in the date and time of recording
information.  This problem has been corrected.

2. When adjustments were made to “Metering” for User Set 1, 2 or 3, the camera setting switched
to a different User Set and the camera turned off. The previously applied Metering setting was
changed when the camera was turned on again. This problem has been corrected.

3. When RAW images were reviewed in the camera monitor in Quick Review or Playback mode with
playback zoom applied and shooting information then switched off or on, image display was
irregular when a playback zoom operation was again performed.  This problem has been corrected.
