Nikon has just released an update to the firmware for the Coolpix P610 camera. This update does not provide any new features; according to Nikon, it addresses problems that can arise with the P610 in two situations.
First, in “rare circumstances,” when you use the eye sensor to switch between using the LCD screen and using the electronic viewfinder, images would not be displayed or saved properly, or the camera would freeze up and need to be rebooted.
Second, the update addresses an issue with manual focus, whereby the focus position would change from one shot to the next when you use the interval timer function of the Continuous menu option.
I had not experienced either of these issues with my camera, but I went ahead and installed the firmware update, because I believe it is a good idea to have the latest version. It installed and worked with no problem.
Here is a link to the page where you can select your computer operating system and download the update. Instructions for installing the update are also included at that page.
For general information about the Coolpix P610 camera, see the White Knight Press guide for that model, Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P610.

[UPDATE May 12, 2015: Until today, there was a technical problem that prevented anyone from actually purchasing the bundle of downloadable formats of the P610 book. That problem has now been fixed, and the book is actually available for purchase!]
As of today, Photographer’s Guide to the Nikon Coolpix P610 is available for purchase through this site in three downloadable formats: PDF, ePub (for iPad and iPhone), and mobi (for Kindle). The book, which is 234 pages long in its PDF and print versions, covers all controls, operations, and features of the superzoom P610 camera, and includes more than 350 full-color illustrations or photographs that demonstrate how the camera works and what kinds of images it can capture.
You can purchase a bundle of all three downloadable formats from this site for $9.95. You will then receive an e-mail message with links to all three formats; you can load any or all of the three files on any of your own computer, tablets, or phones for personal use.
The print version of the book will be available within the next few weeks for a list price of $24.95 from Amazon.com and other sellers.
