Nikon D7000: Firmware Update 1.01 – Fixes Hot Pixel Problem?

By Alan Ng - Dec 23, 2010

We have some good news for owners of the Nikon D7000 digital camera, as Nikon has just announced that they have released a firmware update for the device, which you can download now via the official support website.

As reported from NikonRumors, the key area which has been addressed on the D7000 is bright spots, more commonly known as ‘hot pixels’. This occurs when pixels remain on the LCD screen when they shouldn’t and are a huge cause of considerable frustration amongst avid snappers.

The good news, is that Nikon has ‘reduced’ the likehood of users experiencing bright spots on the D7000, but at the same time, the problem hasn’t been completely eliminated. Here is what Nikon states in their update notes:

”Bright spots were sometimes noticeable with live view mode or movie recording of especially dark scenes or subjects. Occurrence of this issue has been reduced.”

You can download v1.01 over at the Nikon support website here. For those of you who own a D7000 let us know if you have experienced any hot pixels on your device, and how serious a problem you think it is.
