Nikon has updated two of its image editing programs, Capture NX and ViewNX, fixing a bug which caused the Auto Distortion information to appear incorrectly under the Develop or Metadata sections.
Updating your programs is usually a good idea, since bugs are fixed or new features are being added. Moreover, sometimes they might patch some security holes that made you vulnerable to hacker attacks.
The good thing about Nikon is that it is updating its two programs on a monthly basis. The last pair of updates has been released at the beginning of May, meaning that a little over a month has passed since then.
Nikon View NX 2.7.6 and Capture NX 2.4.3 software updates are available for download right now
This time, the Nikon View NX 2.7.6 and Capture NX 2.4.3 software updates are here to correct the lens information for the Auto Distortion function, which appears under different tabs, depending on the program.
Users who will download and install Nikon Capture NX 2.4.3 will notice that the Auto Distortion lens information, which can be found under Camera & Lens Corrections, in the Develop tab, has been modified to display the correct details.

On the other hand, the Nikon View NX 2.7.6 program will show the right information for lenses, regarding the Auto Distortion function by going to the Metadata section and opening File & Camera Information.
Moreover, there is a second change associated to this software update. It says that the company has modified the destination link for Nikon Image Space from myPicturetown to Nikon Image Space, of course.
It seems like this one has previously slipped past the company’s vigilant eyes, but myPicturetown is finally gone forever.
Download links for Nikon’s both program updates
Nikon Capture NX 2.4.3 software update is available for download right now at the company’s official website. It is compatible with all Windows versions from XP onwards, as well Mac OS X 10.6.8 or higher.
