Nikon has issued a firmware update for its new P900 superzoom. Firmware version 1.2 provides the following improvements:
- An effort was made to fix an issue that prevented the shutter being released using the optional ML-L3 remote control when a person or object was immediately behind the camera. You should nevertheless select Off for EVF auto toggle in the camera setup menu when using the ML-L3.
- Fixed a bug that caused the shutter to be released only once if the optional ML-L3 remote control was operated during movie recording, after which movie recording could not be ended using the movie-record button.
You can download the firmware update here on Nikon’s website.
