ViewNX 2 is an all-in-one image browsing and editing software application for both still images and movies. Nikon Transfer 2, which can be used for transferring images to a computer, and Picture Control Utility 2, which allows users to adjust and manage Custom Picture Controls, have been incorporated into ViewNX 2, and functions for editing movies, including one that allows you to trim movie footage, have also been included (Nikon Movie Editor). Smoother collaboration with NIKON IMAGE SPACE, Nikon's image storage and sharing service, has also been achieved.

This is the full version of ViewNX 2.10.3 for Windows and Mac computers. If you are currently using ViewNX 2 this download will uninstall your existing version and then install version 2.10.3. This software supports all Nikon D-SLR cameras, Nikon 1, 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 enabled with Ver. 2.10.3

Modifications that apply to both the Windows and Mac versions

  • Support for the D5500, COOLPIX L31 (not released in Japan), COOLPIX S3700, COOLPIX L32, and the COOLPIX S2900 (not released in Japan) has been added.

Additional modifications to the Windows version

  • When images were converted to JPEG format using the Convert Files function with Quality set to Good Compression Ratio or Highest Compression Ratio, the resulting JPEG images could not be displayed in ViewNX 2, Capture NX 2, or Capture NX-D. This issue has been resolved.

Additional modifications to the Mac version

  • Support for OS X version 10.10.1 has been added.
  • OS X version 10.7.5 is no longer supported.
Notes
  • Transferring files using Nikon Transfer 2:
    - Image transfer using Nikon Transfer 2 is not possible with the following cameras. Use a card reader to transfer images to a computer for storage.
    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.
    - D1, D1X, D1H
    - COOLPIX 990, 950, 880, 800, 700
    -When a D4S with both an XQD card and a CompactFlash card inserted in the memory card slots is connected to a Mac computer while the camera is off, the computer may not recognize the XQD card when the camera is turned on. Should this occur, disconnect the camera from the computer, turn the camera on, and then connect it to the computer again.
  • 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 Mac 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.
    Mac
    - 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.
    3. Movies recorded at a setting of 1080/60i are handled as 1080/30p movies.
  • 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.
  • D4S, D810, D3300, and D5300 image display
    When images captured with the D4S, D810, D3300, or D5300 are displayed at a magnification of less than 25%, brightness in the RAW image preview display and images output in TIFF format may differ.
  • 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 Mac
    Colours will appear lighter in movies played back on a computer running Mac.
  • 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 L19, L20, S550, and S560 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.
  • Images with sidecar files
    ViewNX 2 processes images without using sidecar files. Therefore, processing results will differ from those achieved with processing using Capture NX-D.
  • Capture NX and Capture NX 2
    - Picture Control Utility 2 is installed with the installation of this software. However, Picture Control Utility 2 cannot be launched from Capture NX or Capture NX 2.
    - RAW images saved with Thumbnail only selected for Embed Preview When Saving NEF/NRW in Capture NX 2 (Ver. 2.3.0 or later) Preferences will appear grainy with display in and printing from ViewNX 2.
  • Mac version’s Synchronize camera date and time to computer when camera is connected (supported cameras only)
    Camera date and time will not be synchronized with the computer’s, even when Synchronize camera date and time to computer when camera is connected (supported cameras only) in the Nikon Transfer 2 Preferences panel is checked, if Calendar is set to any option other than Gregorian in the Language & Text > Formats panel of the computer’s System Preferences.
  • Installation under OS X version 10.10 "Yosemite"
    The ViewNX 2 and Picture Control Utility 2 applications (icons) may not be added to the Dock when these applications are installed on a Mac running OS X version 10.10 "Yosemite". Should this occur, please add the applications to the Dock yourself as needed.
