Nikon RAW Codec v1.7.0 & Camera Control Pro 2 v2.5.0 released

Nikon RAW Codec 1.7.0 changes:

  • Supports NEF (RAW) images taken with the D5000.
  • The folder to which the software is installed has been changed from “¥Windows¥System32¥” to “¥Program Files¥Nikon\NEFCodec¥”.
  • Fixed an issue that caused a message stating that the image was corrupt to be displayed when a photograph for which the “Landscape” or “Portrait” Picture Control had been selected using ViewNX™ was displayed in Windows Photo Gallery on a computer to which optional Picture Controls had not been installed.
  • If the user attempted to use Windows Photo Gallery to e-mail an NEF file edited in Capture NX 2™, the JPEG attachment would be cropped to 1,280 × 1,024 pixels. This issue has been resolved.
  • Reduced the time need to display NEF files that have had their brightness modified in ViewNX™.

Camera Control Pro 2 2.5.0 changes:

  • Support for the D5000 has been added.
  • When a camera control settings file was loaded with the Image area: Auto DX Crop box in the Storage tab checked while shooting with a D3, D3X, or D700 camera and a DX lens, a warning message was displayed and the image area and image size could not be specified.  This issue has been resolved.

    And again no 64bit OS support for the nef codec.
    Hello Nikon !!!

  • Steph

    Still no Vista 64 support… 🙁 – is it that outlandish to imagine that users shooting raw may also have powerful post processing apps (Adobe anyone?) optimized vor 64bits?

  • Seriously Nikon, we are all going to be using 64-bit PCs in a few years, time to develop a codec. I have to buy Photo Mechanic to import GPS locations into RAW files and view raw files I don’t want to import into Lightroom. Time to man up and get this codec done. It can’t be that hard.

    At the local Fry’s (Huge computer store) almost all the PC’s are coming preinstalled with Vista 64 bit. The old line that there isnt a large enough installed base doesnt work anymore. Wake up Nikon!!

    Same here. 64 bit. Wake up nikon…

  • Craig

    Agreed. Where is the 64-bit codec, Nikon?

  • Who would use a 64 bit Vista?? Who would use Vista at all?
    I’m using Win XP SP3 32 bit. I would never install VIsta!
    Let’s wait for the new Windows 7 🙂

      A lot of people with the proper rig use Vista 64 with no problems.
      Like all others Nikon will awaken one day to the 64 bit OS.
