Nikon has issued a firmware update for the Coolpix A. Version 1.11 decreases minimum focus distance (in normal focus mode) and boasts improvements to autofocus acquisition. Other improvements are minor, including better battery performance during interval shooting. See the full details below. 


Nikon Coolpix A firmware version C:1.11

  • Focus range with normal autofocus has been changed from approximately 50 cm (1 ft 8 in.) - ∞ to approximately 30 cm (1 ft) - ∞ from the center of the front surface of the lens.
  • AF focus-acquisition rate has been improved when the scene contained in the frame exhibits an extremely high level of contrast.
  • The color of the focus area in manual focus mode has been changed to white, making it easier to identify the current focus mode.
  • Less battery power is now consumed with interval timer photography, enabling interval timer shooting for a longer period of time when the camera is powered by the battery.
