Publisher's description of Nikon Coolpix 5000 Digital Camera Firmware Update 1.7

What is new?

*  Support for RAW (NEF) Image Quality - A RAW image-quality function has been added to the COOLPIX5000 firmware. When an image-quality setting of RAW is selected, "HI" blinks in the camera’s control panel. Additionally, RAW images can be converted to TIFF using the cameras menu. Users will also need to upgrade to Nikon View 5.1.3 (or later) from the product downloads page to take advantage of this new feature. A demo version of Nikon Capture can also be downloaded and evaluated for 30 days.
* Control options for Shutter Release Speed - The Monitor Options item in the setup menu now contains a Shutter Release Speed setting that controls the speed of shutter response as follows.
* Option Normal Priority given to quality of preview displayed in monitor.
* Option Quick Response: Reduces the time lag between pressing the shutter-release button all the way down and shutter being released to take a picture.
* Internal Flash Off option - The Speedlight Control menu now contains an Internal Flash Off option that allows you to turn the built-in Speedlight off entirely. The built in Speedlight will still fire if red-eye reduction is "on" only to reduce red-eye; it will not fire during the actual exposure. Additionally, the internal flash will fire a pre-flash (but not an actual exposure flash) if a Nikon Speedlight is connected.
* Support for Picture Transfer Protocol - PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) option is now available in the USB menu in the Interface setting for the setup menu in User Sets 1, 2 and 3. Users will also need to upgrade to Nikon View 5.1.3 (or later) which is from the product downloads page to take advantage of this new feature.
* Support for Exif 2.2 - The COOLPIX5000 firmware version 1.7 now supports Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format for Digital Still Cameras) version 2.2, a standard that allows information stored with photographs to be used for optimal color reproduction when images are output on EXIF-compliant printers. PRINT Image Matching (PIM) is no longer supported by COOLPIX5000 firmware version 1.7. Users who require PIM should not apply this update.
* Improvements in LCD monitor display - The LCD monitor has been improved to allow better display of images when viewing in dark surroundings. Monitor brightness has also been improved.
* Shutter speed information corrected when using BULB exposure
* Previously when shooting an image with a BULB exposure time of more than 100 seconds, the shutter speed information recorded in the shooting information was incorrect. This has now been fixed.
* Improvements in autofocus performance - Autofocus performance has been improved.
