I'd like to say hello to all and admit that I am a little nervous as this is my first attempt to communicate on the Nikonian site even though I have belonged for a number of years. I have read the concerns about using the stand alone Nikon Transfer 1.5.3 which is the version I have on my computer as well. I have used it in the past to transfer files originally from my old D70 to Capture NX2 without any issues. Recently I upgraded my camera to the D3s but have not transferred any images to Capture NX2 as of yet. I realize you are talking about your experiences with the D800 but the issue seemed the same and I didn't see anything concerning my own camera model and Transfer 1.5.3. I'm sorry if I have been long-winded but my question is, should I remove the stand alone Transfer 1.5.3 from my computer and install ViewNX with built in Transfer or keep the stand alone Transfer version? To be honest I haven't tried to use it with my new camera files as I am no expert if things go wrong. I would certainly appreciate any suggestions. Have a great day everyone.
