Nikon has released minor updates for both its Capture NX and ViewNX softwares to make them compatible with the newest Nikon DSLRs.

Capture NX 2.4.5 is now available to download, and features:

  • Support for RAW images captured with the D5300 and the Df has been added.
  • The Better Quality 2012 option under Noise Reduction in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette has been changed to Better Quality 2013.
  • Applicable from this version, Intensity and Sharpness can now be adjusted separately for both Luminance and Color. Therefore, when images to which Better Quality 2012 was applied with Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.4.4 or earlier are opened in Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.4.5, the effects of Noise Reduction adjustment may change.

For ViewNX 2.8.2, the official changes are even smaller.

  • Support for the D5300 and the Df has been added.

So if you’re planning on picking up that exciting new Nikon Df, here’s your chance to get your software ready to work with it, well in advance of the camera landing in your hands.
