Download the latest Nikon P6000 Firmware Update (Version 1.2)

Released on March 04, 2009, this firmware update enables the following modifications:


  • When shooting in a user setting mode at an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic and Distortion control enabled, some JPEG images were corrupted. This issue has been resolved.

  • As distortion control cannot be used in conjunction with interval timer shooting, settings have been modified so that they cannot be enabled simultaneously.

  • Electric current consumption has been reduced.

  • When shooting in P, S, A, or M mode at an image size setting other than 13M 4224 x 3168 and an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) + Fine, NRW (RAW) + Normal, or NRW (RAW) + Basic, the image size setting switched to 13M 4224 x 3168 when the camera was turned off and then turned on again. This issue has been resolved.

Download the firmware update for Windows (5.48 MB) and Mac (25 MB) platforms.
