Nikon has released updates for View NX2.

Here are the details for View NX2 from the Nikon web site:

ViewNX 2 is an all-in-one application for image transfer*, browsing, sorting, and quick editing for both still images and movie files. It is a fun and easy-to-use application offering enhanced operation and is useful for all Nikon digital camera owners.

Nikon Transfer 2 is included in the application to provide easy file transfer from your Nikon camera* or Memory card reader to a Primary and Backup destination folder. View all images before transfer and select only those you want to keep, rename them, add copyright or other XMP/IPTC information, or Protect your image files from deletion.

New editing functions enable cropping and image straightening for RAW-, TIFF- and JPEG- format images, and adjustment of White Balance and Exposure Compensation for NEF/ NRW RAW images captured with Nikon digital cameras. The Picture Control Utility is also included to allow quick modifications of Picture Controls for NEF/ NRW RAW files.

View NX 2 will batch convert and/or resize NEF/ NRW RAW files to TIFF(16- or 8-bit) or JPEG quickly and easily.

Other editing options include Sharpening, Contrast, Brightness, Highlight and Shadow Protection, D-Lighting, Color Boost, Auto Red Eye Reduction, and Axial Color and Lateral Color Aberration filtering.

If more editing is needed, open with Nikon Capture NX 2 with one click on the toolbar.

ViewNX 2 is also equipped with new Movie Editor that allows users to trim existing movie files to remove unwanted portions and then compile clips into a single movie with added music and different segment transitions.
View NX 2 offers smooth collaboration and easy upload with Nikon Image Space, Nikon's image storage and sharing service.

Geo Tag option is fun to add GPS coordinates to your image files and place them on a world map or use the Log Matching function to match image date/time information with GPS log data, then write GPS data to images.

*Please note that the transfer function will not transfer images from serial connected cameras. Use of a memory card reader is recommended. This option allows images shot with much older Nikon digital cameras to be used with the latest Nikon software.

Here are the details for CNX-2 from the Nikon web site:

Capture NX 2 is a full-scale digital-image processing and editing software application for digital photographers, descended from Nikon Capture.
New - Selection Control Points

Hope this helps.
