Nikon View is straightforward, but ugly. This is slightly churlish, since it's free software and we should be grateful for it, but then again, their pro cameras cost enough to make up for it.

I use Nikon View with a D1X and in the past, it has been pretty flaky - not noticing the camera being attached, sluggish response time - but I suspect that these things were OS version related.

When it works, and it's working right now, it's easy as pie. You plug the camera into the Firewire socket, the software notices, fires up and transfers the files over.

It also works well as a basic picture viewer for your hard disk, and does a swift-ish job of converting files into JPEGs and things like that.

However, it's a bit underpowered when it comes to proper Image Management, so don't use it for this. Use iView Pro - much better.

It could use an interface makeover, and some multi-threading so you can still play whilst transferring images over. But it's a good enough application to do its job. If you don't like it, buy iView Pro and a card reader.

That is all.

My Mac G3 w/ OSX103 handles all Coolpix 990 Tasks without any trouble...

If your camera and your computer are happy together :-) theres no reason to install that (windows-looking) software with ugly icons and no needful features.

My Coolpix 885's no longer shows up as a drive when I plug it into the USB port. Without the ability to upload images, a digital camera is pretty much worthless. This started happening for no apparent reason, I had hoped this software would fix it but it did not.

I am a snubbed owner of a Coolpix 600. I am also a new owner of a Mac G4. I am in a quandary about how to make them fit together. Why was the 600 series left out I wonder?

6.1.1 is the latest version and doesn't upload from my Nikon D100 using Mac OS 10.3. Nikon in Australia claim this is Apple's problem. Would never use the software other than to get my photos on to my Powerbook for editing in Photoshop. Nikon make great cameras but why turn out such trashy software?

This is a truly awful piece of software. Its interface is clunky and completely counterintuitive, and several important functions are wither lost, or invisible to this user. Most importantly, it does not appear possible to erase unwanted images from the memory card, as we could with Nikon View 4.

Why anyone would touch this if they have iPhoto available is beyond me. Ugh.

I also would prefer iPhoto, but only Nikon View is able to manage raw photos.

I few nice new features, especially automated "red eye" correction. Seems a little more stable too, especially under OSX. Only of limited utility if you do NOT own a Nikon camera but it is can be used as an image cataloging thumbnail program by most any one.
