A tethering function is also available and works with all cameras fully compatible with the MTP/PTP transfer protocol, which includes most Nikon and recent Canon DSLRs.
The software supports fast previewing of raw image formats such as Nikon NEF, Canon CR2, Panasonic RW2, Olympus ORF and Adobe DNG through manufacturer-supplied or 3rd party image decoders. Standard image formats such as TIFF/MTIFF, JPEG, HD Photo, PNG, GIF, BMP and ICO are supported.
The program has been translated to several languages, including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish and is able to browse folders and images who's names can be written in any language, thanks to its support for the Unicode standard. FastPictureViewer is among the firsts of a new breed of hardware accelerated desktop applications and delivers unprecedented speed and ease of use.
This software will help you speed up your digital workflow!
NOTE: Free for personal use ONLY. When the trial expires the program reverts to the free Home Basic Edition, which can be used indefinitely with great JPEG and HD Photo support but tethered shooting, raw image formats viewing and external decoder support will be turned off until you enter a license key (the image decoders will continue to function for other Windows applications and Windows Explorer for as long as you keep them installed).
