      It’s been there for a while. I downloaded it months ago.

    Finally ! apple was able to do this awhile ago.

    btw, i solved my d800 left focus problem by using my old 35-135 3.5-4.5 lens because i can not go down more than 3.5 !!!!!!! What a solution…

    • lol

      the proper solution is sending it to Nikon who will fix it under warranty you silly rabbit.

    Doesn´t work with my Coolpix P7000.
    Then again, it´s not on the list.

    • St.

      P7000 is compatible from a long time.
      The current pack also has support for it – they just show the new added models.
      Download and use it.

    • Sledge

      Very odd, i just did and it woks for D7000 and 450D but not P7000.
      Also, this seems to be the complete compatibility list, like it is on the Microsoft site.

    Been using the Nikon NEF Codec for quite a few years, and it works like a charm

  • Christer

    And where is the DNG support !?!

    • vinman

      you can get the dng codec from the adobe site. It’s been available for a while, now.

  • dbltax

    Whaaaaat? But my version has worked with the D800 since I got it several months ago?

  • stuart

    i have been using the Nikon 64 bit codec for years. it works great. the last Microsoft version only supported cameras that were at least 3 years old. i am hesitant to try this version. has anyone who has the nikon version tried the MS version? and if so which do you prefer?

  • Doug B

    Awesome, but it STILL gives me errors when I try to install it. Yes, I am trying to install it from an Administrator level account, and no, I am not on a corporate network.

    In the following error, it gives “cancel, retry, ignore”. retry does not work, and ignore goes on to show errors for additional raw suffixes.

    Could not write value Progid to key
    Verify that you have sufficent access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

      Contact your support geek?
      For most people in a domestic environment that would be…. themselves.

      How many avareage snappers know how to use regedit?
      More importantly, why would you want average used to get near this fragile beast?
      They could do untold damage if they aren’t careful. System rebuilds galore…

      Typical frigging Microsoft. They can’t even produce an installer that works on their own OS….
      {Then again they produce IE9 which IMHO is unusable as it even blocks 192.168.x.x address OOTB.}

      I finally got the upgrade to work, had to go into Resedit and alter permissions.

      Microsoft’s support was utterly useless and something they should be truly ashamed of.

      On the bright side, today I can be upset with Microsoft, since I’ve had months of being frustrated with Nikon!!

  • It appears that Microsoft is finally starting to drop support for the XP operating system, as this Camera Codec pack will only work with Windows 7 and Vista SP2.

    We all knew that day would come when Microsoft would start the process to force upgrades away from XP. Looks like that day has arrived.

  • vinman

    It’s not compatible with Windows 8 yet :-/ Error message says to download from Windows 8 update, but there’s no codec there as of today. Not a terribly big deal since I use LR for virtually everything, but I’ll still be glad once it’s there…
