The following Nikon software can be used with the camera:

Computer Software

Nikon computer software is available from the Nikon Download Center. Check the version and system requirements and be sure to download the latest version.

  • Camera Control Pro 2 (available for purchase): Control the camera remotely from a computer and save photographs directly to the computer hard disk.

  • NX Tether: Use for tethered photography when the camera is connected to a computer. Exposure, white balance, and other camera settings can be adjusted remotely using controls in the computer display.

  • NX Studio *: View and edit photos and videos shot with Nikon digital cameras. NX Studio can be used to fine-tune files in Nikon’s unique NEF/NRW (RAW) format and convert them to JPEG or TIFF (NEF/RAW processing). It supports not only NEF/NRW (RAW) pictures but also JPEG and TIFF photos shot with Nikon digital cameras for such tasks as editing tone curves and enhancing brightness and contrast.

    • Existing users should be sure to download the latest version, as earlier versions may be unable to download pictures from the camera or open NEF (RAW) pictures.

  • Wireless Transmitter Utility: The Wireless Transmitter Utility is required if the camera is to be connected to a network. Pair the camera with the computer and download pictures via Wi‑Fi.

Smartphone (Tablet) Apps

SnapBridge: Download photos and movies from the camera to your smart device via a wireless connection.
