Jan 11, 2019  Transfer Photos from Z6 with USB-C - posted in Nikon FX DSLRs: Hey All! I have a Z6 with no external XQD card reader. I use a Macbook Pro for my main computer. I tried the following steps to connect the Z6 to my laptop to transfer video and nothing happened. 1) Turn off Camera 2) Plug camera into computer with USB-C (using Mac thunderbolt cable) 3) Turn on Camera What am I missing? Mar 23, 2015  Nikon Transfer 1.5.3 is available to all software users as a free download for Windows 10 PCs but also without a hitch on Windows 7 and Windows 8. Compatibility with this file transfer software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP on either a 32-bit.

Whatever photo software you choose to use with the photos you take on your Nikon D3100, D5100, or D7000, you can take the following approaches to downloading images to your computer:

  • Connect the camera to the computer via a USB cable. The USB cable you need is supplied in the camera box.

  • Use a memory card reader. With a card reader, you simply pop the memory card out of your camera and into the card reader instead of hooking the camera to the computer. Many computers and printers now have card readers, and you also can buy standalone readers.

  • Invest in Eye-Fi memory cards and transfer images via a wireless network. You can find out more about these special memory cards and how to set up the card to connect with your computer, at the manufacturer’s website. Your computer must be connected to a wireless network for the transfer technology to work.

Connecting a Nikon DSLR to your computer for picture download

With the USB cable that shipped with your camera, you can connect the camera to your computer and then transfer images directly to the computer’s hard drive.

You need to follow a specific set of steps when connecting the camera to your computer. Otherwise, you can damage the camera or the memory card.

Also note that for your D3100, D5100, or D7000 to communicate with the computer, Nikon suggests that your computer runs one of the following operating systems:

  • Windows 7, Vista with Service Pack 2, or XP with Service Pack 3 (Home or Professional edition). The program runs as a 32-bit application in 64-bit installations of Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

  • Mac OS X 10.4.11, 10.5.8, or 10.6.6

With that preamble out of the way, here are the steps to link your computer and camera:

  1. Check the level of the camera battery.

    If the battery is low, charge it before continuing. Running out of battery power during the transfer process can cause problems, including lost picture data. Alternatively, if you purchased the optional AC adapter, use that to power the camera during picture transfers.

  2. Turn on the computer and give it time to finish its normal startup routine.

  3. Turn off the camera.

  4. Insert the smaller of the two plugs on the USB cable into the USB port on the side of the camera.

  5. Plug the other end of the cable into the computer’s USB port.

  6. Turn on the camera.

    What happens now depends on your computer operating system and what photo software you have installed on that system.

  7. When the download is complete, turn off the camera and then disconnect it from the computer.

    Turn off the camera before severing its ties with the computer. Otherwise, you can damage the camera.

Transferring photos from your Nikon D3100, D5100, or D7000 to your computer

After you connect the camera to the computer or insert a memory card into your card reader, your next step depends, again, on the software installed on your computer and the computer operating system.

Here are the most common possibilities and how to move forward:

  • On a Windows-based computer, a Windows message box appears. The dialog box suggests different programs that you can use to download your picture files.

  • An installed photo program automatically displays a photo-download wizard. Usually, the downloader that appears is associated with the software that you most recently installed.

  • Nothing happens. Don’t panic; assuming that your card reader or camera is properly connected, all is probably well. Someone simply may have disabled all the automatic downloaders on your system. Just launch your photo software and then transfer your pictures using whatever command starts that process.

    As another option, you can use Windows Explorer or the Mac Finder to drag and drop files from your memory card to your computer’s hard drive.

ViewNX 2 is an all-in-one image browsing and editing software application for both still images and movies. Nikon Transfer 2, which can be used for transferring images to a computer, and Picture Control Utility 2, which allows users to adjust and manage Custom Picture Controls, have been incorporated into ViewNX 2, and functions for editing movies, including one that allows you to trim movie footage, have also been included (Nikon Movie Editor). Smoother collaboration with NIKON IMAGE SPACE, Nikon's image storage and sharing service, has also been achieved.
This is the full version of ViewNX 2.10.3 for Windows and Mac computers. If you are currently using ViewNX 2 this download will uninstall your existing version and then install version 2.10.3. This software supports all Nikon D-SLR cameras, Nikon 1, and all COOLPIX cameras with USB support.
Be sure that you have read and understand the terms of the license agreement before initiating download of this software from the links at the bottom of this page.

Modifications enabled with Ver. 2.10.3

Modifications that apply to both the Windows and Mac versions

  • Support for the D5500, COOLPIX L31 (not released in Japan), COOLPIX S3700, COOLPIX L32, and the COOLPIX S2900 (not released in Japan) has been added.

Additional modifications to the Windows version

  • When images were converted to JPEG format using the Convert Files function with Quality set to Good Compression Ratio or Highest Compression Ratio , the resulting JPEG images could not be displayed in ViewNX 2, Capture NX 2, or Capture NX-D. This issue has been resolved.

Additional modifications to the Mac version

  • Support for OS X version 10.10.1 has been added.
  • OS X version 10.7.5 is no longer supported.
Notes
  • Transferring files using Nikon Transfer 2:
    - Image transfer using Nikon Transfer 2 is not possible with the following cameras. Use a card reader to transfer images to a computer for storage.
    COOLPIX 910, 900, 600, 300, 100
    - Image transfer using Nikon Transfer 2 with the camera connected to the computer is not possible with the cameras indicated below. Use a card reader to transfer images.

    -When a D4S with both an XQD card and a CompactFlash card inserted in the memory card slots is connected to a Mac computer while the camera is off, the computer may not recognize the XQD card when the camera is turned on. Should this occur, disconnect the camera from the computer, turn the camera on, and then connect it to the computer again.
  • Restrictions on Nikon Movie Editor
    1. Movies up to 60 minutes in length can be edited with the Windows version; movies up to 30 minutes in length can be edited with the Mac version.
    2. The following restrictions on the number of movies and still images that can be added to the storyboard apply.
    Windows
    - A project containing up to 10 movies, or a total of 30 movies and still images, can be previewed and exported.
    - When a movie a few seconds in length with transition effects applied is added to the storyboard, the movie file may not be properly exported, even if it does not exceed restrictions on the number of movies and still images.
    Mac
    - A project containing 4 H.264 (1920 × 1080) movies and 2 still images can be previewed and exported. However, when H.264 movies recorded at 720p and lower are used, the number of movie files and still images that can be used in a project increases.
    - In addition, when only Motion JPEG (1080p) movies are used, a project containing up to 30 movies can be previewed and exported.
    3. Movies recorded at a setting of 1080/60i are handled as 1080/30p movies.
  • NRW (RAW) images
    When images captured at a white balance setting of Auto and an image quality setting of NRW (RAW) are enhanced using ViewNX 2, the results achieved may differ from those achieved with in-camera NRW (RAW) processing.
  • D4S, D810, D3300, and D5300 image display
    When images captured with the D4S, D810, D3300, or D5300 are displayed at a magnification of less than 25%, brightness in the RAW image preview display and images output in TIFF format may differ.
  • Ratings applied with a COOLPIX camera
    Ratings applied with a COOLPIX camera in playback mode are not reflected in ViewNX 2 or other applications that support ratings.
  • H.264 movie playback under Mac
    Colours will appear lighter in movies played back on a computer running Mac.
  • Display of MPO-format images shot in 3D
    MPO-format images shot in 3D can only be viewed with a viewer that supports 3D images.
  • COOLPIX L19, L20, S550, and S560 Smile mode
    Scene mode information is not correctly displayed in the Metadata palette for images captured in Smile mode. However, all other operations function properly.
  • Images with sidecar files
    ViewNX 2 processes images without using sidecar files. Therefore, processing results will differ from those achieved with processing using Capture NX-D.
  • Capture NX and Capture NX 2
    - Picture Control Utility 2 is installed with the installation of this software. However, Picture Control Utility 2 cannot be launched from Capture NX or Capture NX 2.
    - RAW images saved with Thumbnail only selected for Embed Preview When Saving NEF/NRW in Capture NX 2 (Ver. 2.3.0 or later) Preferences will appear grainy with display in and printing from ViewNX 2.
  • Mac version’s Synchronize camera date and time to computer when camera is connected (supported cameras only)
    Camera date and time will not be synchronized with the computer’s, even when Synchronize camera date and time to computer when camera is connected (supported cameras only) in the Nikon Transfer 2 Preferences panel is checked, if Calendar is set to any option other than Gregorian in the Language & Text > Formats panel of the computer’s System Preferences .
  • Installation under OS X version 10.10 'Yosemite'
    The ViewNX 2 and Picture Control Utility 2 applications (icons) may not be added to the Dock when these applications are installed on a Mac running OS X version 10.10 'Yosemite'. Should this occur, please add the applications to the Dock yourself as needed.
