Nikon has released the ViewNX 2.7.4 software update for download, adding support for the new D7100 camera and fixing several issues which have affected the program’s users.

The Nikon ViewNX software is a photo-editing tool, which also allows users to transfer images from their cameras to their computers. Additionally, the program is now integrated with the recently-launched Nikon Image Space, a free cloud storage service offered by the Japanese manufacturer.

The Nikon ViewNX 2.7.4 update does not come packed with too many changes when compared to the previous version. However, photographers who managed to get their hands on a new D7100 can now import RAW photos or other files from the camera to their computers.

As usual, the software update can be downloaded by both Mac OS X and Windows PC owners. Windows 8 is also supported, but the changelog of the Mac version has had an extra bug fixed.

According to Nikon, ViewNX 2.7.4 is now able to correctly display the lens name of images taken with the combination between any DSLR camera and the AF-S Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned issue has not been entirely repaired. When recording movies, the software will show that the action was performed with a G-type optic. Moreover, the metadata will be incorrectly displayed on photos captured with the mirrorless 1-series cameras and the mount adapter FT-1.

The company has not mentioned when this problem will be finally fixed, though another minor update may be released soon.

As stated above, the Macintosh version comes with an extra change. All JPEG images saved with the 2.3.0 and 2.3.1 versions of the Capture NX software are now opening in ViewNX 2.7.4.

Nikon NEF RAW Codec 1.18.0 is now available, too, with support for both D7100 and Coolpix A cameras

Nikon also published an update for its NEF RAW codec, in order to bring support for the D7100 DSLR camera and the Coolpix A APS-C compact shooter.

The Nikon NEF RAW Codec 1.18.0 can be downloaded right now, along with the Windows and Mac OS X versions of the ViewNX 2.7.4 program.
