Browse, edit and share Nikon RAW images and EXIF data including movies taken by Nikon digital SLR cameras
A review of ViewNX by Tina de Pierre

ViewNX is a software application that can be used to transfer photographs and videos from Nikon cameras.

The application is easy-to-use and can not just transfer photos from your Nikon camera, but also view and edit your photos within ViewNX.

ViewNX supports several image formats including NEF (Nikon RAW), TIFF and JPG images. As for video support, it supports movies created by Nikon cameras like NDF, AVI and MOV.

With ViewNX, you can organize your photos into specific folders on your PC. Once transferred, ViewNX can edit them in certain ways like rotate and apply filters.

Image enhancement tools are also available such as adjusting lighting, white balance, sharpness, contrast, etc.

ViewNX provides several useful filters as well as a tool which can remove the red eye effect created by the camera flash.

The Nikon Movie Editor included with ViewNX can be quite useful for optimizing and editing videos created with your Nikon camera. It also supports the creation of image slideshows.

All in all, ViewNX is an imaging, editing and video editor suite from Nikon that can be helpful for the owners of Nikon cameras.

ViewNX features and highlights:
  • Workspace can be smoothly switched by clicking the tool button
  • Background color can be selected according to image brightness (White/Grey/Dark Grey/Black)
  • Improved operational efficiency by displaying two different panels simultaneously - left for folders and right for image adjustment/metadata
  • Thumbnail List can be selected when "Browser" or "Edit" is used
  • Start/end points can be set (unnecessary portions can be deleted)
  • Selected frames can be saved (still-image saving), JPEG images with number of pixels equivalent to movie recording size
