Nikon View NX2.3.0 released

Post by Stany Buyle »

Nikon released Nikon ViewNX2.3.0.

From the Nikon UK website (https://nikoneurope-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/51360)

ViewNX 2.3.0 Full Version

< Back to Results
ViewNX 2 is an all-in-one image browsing and editing software application for both still images and movies. Nikon Transfer 2 is incorporated into ViewNX 2 for transferring images to a computer.

This is the full install version of ViewNX 2.3.0 for Windows and Macintosh computers. If you are currently using ViewNX 2 this download will upgrade the existing software to version 2.3.0. This software supports all Nikon D-SLR cameras and all COOLPIX cameras with USB support.

Be sure that you have read and understand the terms of the license agreement before initiating download of this software from the links at the bottom of this page.

Modifications made in this version
Support for the D800 and D800E has been added.
Save and Save As… items have been added to the File menu.
Original image files (original format, size, resolution, etc.) can now be sent as e-mail attachments from ViewNX 2 using the Email function.
A Margins function has been added to Index Print settings in the Print dialog.
Slideshows were sometimes not displayed properly when run with Auto-Hide Slide Controls selected for Toolbars in the slideshow Settings Dialog. This issue has been resolved. (64-bit version of ViewNX 2 only.)
Additional modifications to the Windows version ViewNX 2 and the Picture Control Utility now function as native 64-bit applications under 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
When the decimal symbol used by the OS was set to anything other than a period (.) or comma (,) from the Regional and Language Options in the operating system’s Control Panel, position information was not correctly displayed. This issue has been resolved.
An issue that prevented editing of information in the Metadata palette for images saved to Windows shared folders has been resolved.
An issue that prevented smooth playback of Motion Snapshot files with some systems has been resolved.
Additional modifications to the Macintosh version ViewNX 2, the Picture Control Utility, and Nikon Transfer 2 now function as native 64-bit applications under Mac OS X versions 10.6 and 10.7.

notes:
When transferring files using Nikon Transfer 2:
- Image transfer using Nikon Transfer 2 is not possible with the following cameras: COOLPIX 910/900/600/300/100
- Image transfer using Nikon Transfer 2 with the camera connected to the computer is not possible with the cameras indicated below. Use a card reader to transfer images.
Windows
- D1, D1X, D1H
- COOLPIX 950/800/700
- COOLPIX 990/880 (under Windows 7)
Macintosh
- COOLPIX 950/800/700

Restrictions on Nikon Movie Editor
1. Movies up to 60 minutes in length can be edited with the Windows version; movies up to 30 minutes in length can be edited with the Macintosh version.
2. The following restrictions on the number of movies and still images that can be added to the storyboard apply.
Windows
- A project containing up to 10 movies, or a total of 30 movies and still images, can be previewed and exported.
- When a movie a few seconds in length with transition effects applied is added to the storyboard, the movie file may not be properly exported, even if it does not exceed restrictions on the number of movies and still images.
Macintosh
- A project containing 4 H.264 (1920 × 1080) movies and 2 still images can be previewed and exported. However, when H.264 movies recorded at 720p and lower are used, the number of movie files and still images that can be used in a project increases.
In addition, when only Motion JPEG (1080p) movies are used, a project containing up to 30 movies can be previewed and exported.

NRW (RAW) images
When images captured at a white balance setting of Auto and an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) are enhanced using ViewNX 2, the results achieved may differ from those achieved with in-camera NRW (RAW) processing.

Ratings applied with a COOLPIX camera
Ratings applied with a COOLPIX camera in playback mode are not reflected in ViewNX 2 or other applications that support ratings.

H.264 movie playback under Windows
Tones will be softer and colors will appear lighter in movies played back on a computer running Windows.

H.264 movie playback and editing on a Macintosh
Operation may be extremely slow on PowerPC models.

Display of MPO-format images shot in 3D
MPO-format images shot in 3D can only be viewed with a viewer that supports 3D images.

COOLPIX S550, S560, L20 and L19 Smile mode
Scene mode information is not correctly displayed in the Metadata palette for images captured in Smile mode.
However, all other operations function properly.

Capture NX 2
- When this software is installed on a computer to which Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.2.8 or earlier has been installed, the Picture Control Utility will be replaced with a version not supported by Capture NX 2, making it impossible to launch the Picture Control Utility from Capture NX 2. Please upgrade Capture NX 2 to Ver. 2.3.0.
- RAW images saved with Thumbnail only selected for Embed Preview When Saving NEF/NRW in Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.3.0 Preferences will appear grainy with display in and printing from ViewNX 2.

Capture NX

Windows version of QuickTime Ver. 7.7 (32-bit version of ViewNX 2 only)
In some rare cases, depending upon the system to which QuickTime Ver. 7.7 is installed, the following features may not function.
- Slideshow
- The Convert Motion Snapshot to Movie item in the File menu
- Upload Motion Snapshot files to a Web service other than my Picturetown using the Web Service item in the File menu
