Today I learned that Nikon recently released a firmware upgrade for the Coolpix P520 camera. This upgrade updates the firmware to Version 1.1 to address a couple of bugs in the camera’s operation. One issue involves a situation in which the camera could not be turned on after it was used with GPS data recording enabled. The other issue involves a problem with the monitor display and camera controls after shooting images with subject tracking enabled for autofocus.
These errors both seem to involve fairly rare occurrences, and I never experienced either problem with my camera. It’s probably not a bad idea to install the upgrade, though, just to have the latest firmware. The instructions and download link are at Nikon’s support web site.
