Nikon released View NX 2.0.1 today!


I downloaded the Dutch version and it looks fantastic! :o :D :) :shock:

A dual monitor screenshot of ViewNX2.0.1:

Or an other possibility for GPS use...

Or, -TMHO-, the best setting, with basical image correction window...

Or, with an improved picture control window opened...

As you can read here below, Nikon ViewNX2.0.1 has a bunch of new image editing functions, for basical editing functions, you don't really need Capture NX2 anymore, which is great.

What pleases me very much is the very good crop function in ViewNX2... It reminds me to the old View 6.27, which had much more possibilities than the FORMER ViewNX1.5...

A screenshot of the new crop modein ViewNX2:

You also can go for a view for basical NEF editing functions:

And... View NX 2 is for free!!! Thank you Nikon.

You can read here all improvements and new functions that have been added:

From the Nikon website:
  • ViewNX 2 Primary New Functions

Revamped user interface
Three workspaces
It is easy to switch between the three workspaces—Browser, GeoTag, Edit—with the simple click of a button on the Toolbar.

Image

Four background colors
The color of the workspace background can be selected from white, grey, dark grey and black, depending upon the brightness of images.

Changing palette display, thumbnail list display
As the Browser palette at the left of the ViewNX 2 window and the Edit palette at the right of the window can be displayed separately, working with ViewNX 2 is more efficient. What's more, as unnecessary palettes can be hidden, the workspace can be maximized. In the Browser and Edit workspaces, the Thumbnail List option can also be selected to display image details with thumbnails.

My cache settings for best performance...

Postby Stany Buyle » Sun 22 Aug 2010 08:56

After trying out the different settings I did put the cache of NX2 on a separate physical drive while you keep the cache on your C drive or another physical drive (not just on another partition of the same drive). This settings gives me optimal speed while browsing the files in nikon View2 and opening them in NX2.

I will try a very fast SDD soon only for Nikon software.
kindest regards,

Stany
