Nikon releases Coolpix P90 firmware update version 1.1

Nikon releases the first firmware update for the Coolpix P90 digital camera. This firmware fixes the issue that, in some rare cases, prevented accurate recording of images captured without interruption in single shooting mode with manual focus and Distortion control enabled.
You should note that this firmware update will erase all internal memory, you should therefore transfer all images written to internal memory before proceeding with this firmware update.

Nikon COOLPIX P90 Feature Highlights

Nikon's exclusive Smart Portrait System
Automatically detecting as many as 12 faces in the shot, Face-priority AF helps produce satisfying portraits by adjusting focus and exposure. Smile Timer helps to faithfully record precious moments by automatically releasing the shutter when the subject smiles. The new Blink Proof function automatically shoots two sequential frames and saves the shot in which the subject's eyes are open-wide. And, the advanced red-eye reduction capability of In-Camera Red-Eye Fix automatically corrects any perceived red-eye effect before saving the image to memory.

VR image stabilization for sharper results
Compensating for the effects of camera shake to realize sharper results and contribute to a more reassuring shooting experience, image sensor shift VR image stabilization frees you to enjoy capturing special moments without worrying about slight hand movements. This is particularly helpful when taking advantage of the 24x zoom lens' super-telephoto focal lengths, or when shooting in lower-lighting conditions.

ISO 6400 capability provides extended shooting range
A variety of light sensitivity controls create new opportunities to take sharper, more natural-looking photos in lower light conditions, or to capture fast-moving subjects with outstanding clarity. Sensitivity of up to ISO 6400* can be set using manual control. Auto control is available for settings between ISO 64 through ISO 800. High ISO Sensitivity Auto (ISO 64-1600) can be used to have the camera analyze the brightness of the scene and automatically select the optimum ISO setting. And, Fixed range auto allows sensitivity to be limited between a range from ISO 64 to 100, 200 or 400.

*ISO 3200 and 6400 are available only for image sizes of 3M (2048 x 1536) or smaller.

3-in. vari-angle LCD and electronic viewfinder
In addition to its 3-in. high-resolution vari-angle LCD with anti-reflection coating, the COOLPIX P90 features the versatility of an electronic viewfinder that further enhances compositional freedom and accuracy under all lighting conditions.

Nikon's innovative Active D-Lighting function
Enabled during shooting, Active D-Lighting is a unique technology that adds light and detail where necessary while leaving correctly-exposed areas untouched to produce significantly improved images with a more natural-looking finish.

Quick Retouch
Quick Retouch adds the right finishing touch to your photos by automatically creating a retouched copy with the best balance of contrast and saturation.
