Today I learned that Nikon has released an upgrade to version 1.2 of the firmware for the Coolpix P900 camera. This is not a major upgrade; according to Nikon, it fixes a couple of bugs concerning the ways the optional ML-L3 infrared remote control operates. I never experienced any problems with that remote, but it is probably a good idea to download and install the upgrade, if only to keep your camera’s operating system up to date.
Here is a link to the page with download instructions and the file to be downloaded: http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/download/fw/150.html. I installed the upgrade in just a few minutes, with no problems. Basically, you just have to download a file, copy it to a memory card that has been formatted in the P900, then turn on the camera with the card in it, go to the Firmware Version item on the Setup menu, and follow the instructions to complete the upgrade.
As of today, the paperback version of Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P900 is available for ordering through Amazon.com. The paperback book, which sells for $24.95, contains the same text and images as the ebook versions, which have been on sale for about the past week. The paperback book is 8.5 inches (240mm) by 11 inches (280mm) in size and has 184 pages. Like the e-versions, it includes a complete Table of Contents and Index.

As of today, Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P900 is available in downloadable formats for the Kindle and iPad, as well as in a PDF format that can be read on any computer or other device that has software for reading PDF files. The new book is very similar to the guide for the Coolpix P610, published last month. The new book is 236 pages long in its print and PDF versions, and contains more than 350 illustrations. It includes information about all features and operations of the Coolpix P900 camera.
