Nikon announces future firmware update for the D7000!

To address the hot pixel problems that have been plaguing D7000 users when shooting low-light videos Nikon has confirmed that there will be a firmware update in the near future.

Personally, I don't think people should be shooting video in the dark without an additional light source, but that's just like my opinion man...

From Nikon:

We have received reports from some users of the Nikon D7000 digital SLR camera regarding the occurrence of noticeable bright spots with movie recording under certain conditions.

Nikon believes that these bright spots are not normally noticeable, and therefore do not indicate a problem with practical use. However, with further investigation of the reports received, we have confirmed that bright spots may be noticeable when recording movies of especially dark scenes or subjects.

In order to provide our customers with better products, Nikon is currently preparing to release a firmware upgrade with measures to reduce the occurrence of these bright spots for the D7000. Further details will be announced at a later date.
