Nikon’s ViewNX software has just been updated to version 2.2.1, which has added support for the Nikon J1 and V1 cameras as well as the Coolpix AW100/AW100s compact cameras. ViewNX is Nikon’s free bundled photo editing and organizing software, and the update has brought more than just new camera compatibility. We’ve embedded the full change-log after the jump.
Support for the Nikon 1 J1, COOLPIX AW100/AW100s and Nikon 1 V1 has been added.
Support for the Smart Photo Selector and Motion Snapshot functions built into the Nikon 1 J1 and Nikon 1 V1 has been added.
– All images captured in Smart Photo Selector mode, or just the “best shot” in an SPS series, can be displayed.
– Playback similar to that of camera playback is possible for Motion Snapshot files.
– Motion Snapshot files can be uploaded to my Picturetown.
- An “exclude” option has been added to ratings.
Movie ratings can now be changed. However, ratings cannot be applied to movies that were not originally rated.
When Highlight Protection was applied to RAW images captured with the P7000, areas around the portion to which this function was applied became dark. This issue has been resolved.
An issue that prevented the correct display of flash compensation value for images captured with the D3100 using the SB-900 has been resolved.
When the Auto Lateral Color Aberration function was applied to some RAW images, gray edges were displayed in some portions of the subject. This issue has been resolved.
An issue that caused JPEG images edited or saved with ViewNX 2 to be saved at a high compression ratio has been resolved.
Support for transferring the following files has been added to Nikon Transfer 2.
– Files recorded using the Smart Photo Selector function
– Files recorded using the Motion Snapshot function
– GPS log files recorded with the AW100/AW100s
– MPO (3D) files
An “exclude” option has been added to Nikon Transfer 2 ratings.
An Always use ratings applied on original files (supported camera only) check box has been added to the Nikon Transfer 2 Preferences panel.
Movie ratings can now be changed with transfer using Nikon Transfer 2. However, ratings cannot be applied to movies that were not originally rated.
The Start Transfer button in the Nikon Transfer 2 window is now larger.
An issue that prevented Nikon Transfer 2 recognition of a memory card inserted in slot 2 when the D7000 was connected to the computer has been resolved.
There also a handful of changes specific to both Mac OS and Windows, but they’re mostly relatively minor.
Technically, this update is via Nikon’s European website, but we assume it’ll be hitting their USA one in short order, too. Now we’re just waiting on an update to Adobe Camera RAW to handle these new models.
