Nikon D6 & COOLPIX P950 Firmware Updates Now Available

By on

The new firmware Version 1.51 for Nikon D6 and Firmware Version 1.3 for COOLPIX P950 are now available for download online.

The D6 is Nikon’s first professional DSLR not to offer support for Compact Flash media. Unlike the D5, the D6 will ship with dual XQD / CFExpress card slots. At the heart of the D6 is a 20.8MP sensor, offering the same resolution as the D5, but it’s now coupled with a new Expeed 6 processor and offers up to 14fps burst shooting with ‘E-type’ lenses (those with electromagnetically controlled diaphragms). Switch into live view, and the D6 will shoot silently at up to 10.5fps at full resolution – users can also opt for 30fps for 8MP files and 60fps for 2MP files if needed. The native ISO range covers values of 100 to 102,400, with an expansion range up to 3.2 million.

Nikon D6 Firmware Version 1.51

Changes from “C” Firmware Version 1.50 to 1.51

• Fixed the following issues:

  • – Taking pictures with [Enable] selected for [Flicker reduction] > [Flicker reduction setting] in the [PHOTO SHOOTING MENU] and aperture stopped down using either a camera control to which depth-of-field preview was assigned or the aperture stop-down button on a PC lens would in rare cases cause the camera to stop responding with “Err” displayed in the top control panel and viewfinder.
  • – Double-tapping the display to cancel playback zoom would result in the monitor failing to turn off automatically following the delay selected for Custom Setting c4 [Monitor off delay] > [Playback] in the [CUSTOM SETTING MENU].
  • – Sliding the vibration reduction mode switch on an AI AF VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED lens from “ON” to “OFF” would disable autofocus on the camera to which the lens was attached.

Nikon COOLPIX P950 Firmware Version 1.3
