Nikon Coolpix 885 Firmware v1.2
Nikon has today announced new firmware for the Coolpix 885 digital camera. Firmware v1.2, which is slightly less radical than the new firmware announced for the Coolpix 5000, simply adds EXIF 2.2 (ExifPrint) support and PTP USB connection mode. Interestingly (and I hadn't noticed this with other similar firmware upgrades) Nikon specifically notes that Epson's PRINT Image Matching is no longer supported. Looks like PIM is dead.
Note: Nikon USA haven't yet posted their update, please only try to update your camera with firmware from your regional tech support website.
COOLPIX 885 version 1.2 release note
Support for Exif 2.2
The COOLPIX 885 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.
Support for Picture Transfer Protocol
The SET-UP menu now offers an Interface option containing Video Mode
and USB settings. The former is identical to the existing Video Mode option
that allows you to choose the video mode used when connecting the camera
to a television. The USB option specifies the USB protocol used when the
camera is connected to a computer. Two protocols are available: Mass Storage
and PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol).
