Microsoft Camera Codec Pack – OPEN NIKON, CANON RAW FILES in WINDOWS 7

An updated Windows 7 Microsoft Camera Codec Pack was released today. What the heck is this Microsoft Camera Codec Pack and why do you care? Quite simply this download installs a piece of software that will allow you to open your CANON .CR2 and NIKON .NEF raw files just like any other picture on your computer without additional software from Canon, NIKON, Adobe etc. Download the file here.

The only thing you need to know is whether or not your computer is 32 or 64 bit. If you arent sure dont worry. Your Windows 7 pc will not let you install the wrong version.

I verified the software works with my Canon EOS 60D files and NIKON D7000,
