All other Coolpix cameras use the Nikon NRW Codec

Why is this useful?  Installing this Codec will allow you to see thumbnails of your images when using the windows file explorer.  This is handy and allows you a quick look vs. having to crank up Lightroom or Bridge all the time.

IMPORTANT:  You should only use this Codec for quick viewing.  DO NOT USE any file management to move files outside of Lightroom, if you are using Lightroom as your Digital Asset Management tool.

Cheers and happy photo’ing
