I downloaded cam2pc last night. It does some things I had been wishing NikonView did [...]. All in all, I'm very impressed.


[...] it is a wonderfully useful piece of software. I was running an earlier version previously but I just reinstalled my OS and got the newer version.. the new features totally rock.


It's much better than anything the camera manufacturers provide. My wife is even able to use it. [...] I like to have my photos in a folder named by the date the pictures were taken (not downloaded) in yyyy-mm-dd format. That would be a pain without software.
