    I was hoping for NX3. 😉 Maybe Aperture 3 tomorrow at Steve’s World instead. Is Aperture 2 really over 2 years old now?

    • Adam

      yeah, I hope it will be a surprised announcement of Aperture 3. So far it has only been about Tablets and internet related.

  • Crossing my fingers and downloading…

  • Tomas

    Have been waiting a long time for this !

  • NikoDoby

    Any new, yet to be announced, camera support?

  • Stu

    Still crashing on my Macbook Pro running 10.6.2…… Not happy.

    • Really? It’s fine on mine so far, what video card setting are you using?

      • Stu

        How do you mean in terms of video settings?

        • Are you using one of the unibody Macbooks with the selectable video cards? I don’t know that it actually makes a difference beyond battery life, but I always select “Higher Performance” when I’m working with NX or LR.

    • Adam

      well it works fine except ViewNX is remarkably SLOWWWW to load.

  • Stu

    OIC, no I am running an old style Macbook Pro (all silver) with a Geforce 8600M GT 128mb graphics card (and 2.2ghz core 2 duo, 2gb ram).

  • Oldrail

    Have been trying to get to Nikon USA to download new Nikon ViewNX. Site has been unavailable for last 20 min.

  • Finally !!! 🙁

  • Mark

    Well, this has completely killed ViewNX on my Windows 7 machine. After upgrading it doesnt even launch. That’s just about what I have come to expect from Nikon, without doubt one of the worst companies for software, and its not even a complex program.

  • Mark

    Ok, so after reinstalling 1.5.0 and then 1.5.2 again, its now working, and finally the green colour cast has been fixed and my photos no longer look like they were taken in The Matrix 🙂
    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 BTW

  • Magnuss

    Anyway ViewNX and Capture NX isn`t very ergonomic and easy to handle

    • No, they aren’t, but as much as I love LR, the image quality isn’t what you get from the NX apps. I wish that Nikon would look at the UIs of their competition, or (and I know this is like asking for a bazillion, kajillion dollars) stop encrypting the data in their RAW files so that other applications like LR can correctly convert them.

      • Try LR3 (beta) and change the camera profile.. tada!!!!!

  • Stu

    I have tried everything, done a complete software update, rebooted etc and still doesn’t work without crashing immediately on opening it.


    • Stu

      I have it running now, but only when I open it in Rosetta mode 🙁

      • Cybes

        Crashes for me too unless I run it in Rosetta mode.

        I had the old ViewNX installed which partially worked with Rosetta enabled, then upgraded to 1.5.2 and when it crashed mid usage I noticed Rosetta was still ticked, so disabled it and now it crashes every time I attempt to launch it.

  • Tim

    I am showing the Transfer download as 1.5.3, also shows up this way in Help/About. View does show 1.5.2.

  • Darz

    They should release Camera Control Pro that actually works on Win 7.

  • Gary

    Scan 4, still waiting….

    ,,,and waiting…

  • stvwndr

    Works as advertised,
    same old crappy app.
    They must have one programmer working on nikon apps.. bc they consistently suck for mac 😀
    But at least my colors are ok now lol;;
    (Why the hell does it bloat the nef file when I make changes? I don’t think NX does that..)

  • Andrew

    I had problems and problems with the previous version of ViewNX. Finally 1.5.2 was release yesterday. I un-installed the the previous version of ViewNX first, reboot, and then install 1.5.2. Everything works wonderful so far. No problem running at 10.6.2 on a Intel Core 2 Duo iMac.

  • Cybes

    Solved my problem. Uninstalled, re-installed 1.4.0 and ran it once with Rosetta disabled in Info, reinstalled 1.5.2 and ran, all good!
