    Am I Always Connected, if I own an iPhone?

      Only if your iPhone is unlocked 😉

    There has got to be a more efficient way to do this than have everyone download and install all the Nikon software packages in their entirety every time Nikon releases a new camera. The RAW converter should be modular, and all you should need to do is (optionally) add a small file for the D3400 into the directory holding the profiles for all the different cameras.

      Or at least be able to hot-update (like hotfixes). Come to think of it, LR/PS should do the same thing.

      • Back when bandwidth was scarce/expensive, software patches were shipped as highly efficient diffs as a matter of course. Today, we get ludicrously inefficient “patches”, one game I play just had a 19GB “patch” yesterday.

          Well game is different. That patch’s work is probably more than just change some codes. Maybe it adds lots of elements to database of graphics, pictures, patterns, audio files,..etc.

          • Of course, but 19GB is a *huge* amount of stuff. About 1/3 of the size of the entire product on disk. (It probably includes new content, but I doubt it equates to 33% of the existing game including existing expanded content.) Assuming it’s compressed during transmission, that’s even worse. Most delivered content is highly compressible, so 19GB buys you a lot of stuff.

            The same thing applies to software patches from lots of vendors, who seem to have thrown efficiency by the wayside. If they were truly sending diff patches, most patches would be minuscule.

    • Scott

      Agreed, but on the other hand, how frequently are you buying new cameras?

      • Captain Megaton

        Exactly. I’m not. But Nikon usually throws in a couple of bug fixes so the “better safe than sorry” mentality is to go and get the latest release.

        I’m saying they should decouple the bug fixes from the camera RAW updates. Bug fixes should be small, automatically installed patches, and RAW updates optional, modular downloads.

    Still impossible to install CNXD under Linux w/Wine. The first version worked. Why, why, why???
