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.

  • Webcam Utility: The Webcam Utility lets you use your camera as a webcam when it is connected to the computer via USB. The camera will appear as “Webcam Utility” in web conferencing apps. Selecting “Webcam Utility” converts the camera into a webcam. For information on compatible cameras, system requirements, and using the Webcam Utility, as well as on the precautions to be observed during use, see the Webcam Utility page in the Nikon Download Center.
