You can download the Manual Viewer App from the App Store, and download the P7700 manual to keep with you at all times. This App is very usefull and contains many Nikon Products manuals. Another way is to download the PDF manual file from the Nikon website, and keep it in iBooks.

Question

To transfer photos to a Mac using the USB cable, *MUST* I install ViewNX2?

I would like to have the option of using the USB cable to transfer photos from the P7700 to my computer. But I would rather not install ViewNX2 because it's a bit of a hard disk hog and my Macbook Air has a relatively small SSD. I use other software for post processing and photo library management, so the only thing I'd use ViewNX2 for is transferring photos.

Is there a way to transfer photos via the USB cable that does not require installing ViewNX2? I tried attaching the camera to the computer with the cable hoping the camera would show up as an external mass storage device, but it did not. (This works with other cameras I've used before.)

Thanks for any suggestions.

Joe, you are correct, and I have been using an SD card reader to transfer my pictures.

But my question was: I would like to have the option of also using the USB cable for transferring pictures. Is it possible to use the cable without installing the ViewNX2 software.

If anyone knows the answer to this question, I'd be grateful.

Thanks.

Assuming you downloaded the P7700 firmware from the link below:
https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...
....and you've extracted and dragged the 'firmware' folder to the root of your memory card, and inserted the card into your P7700, and went to firmware option in the camera setup menu, but you weren't prompted to install the new firmware, we suggest you fully recharge the EN-EL14 battery in the camera and try again. If possible reset the camera via the setup menu and try a diffent memory card from the link below.

The built-in digital ND filter on the Coolpix P7700 works quite well, but it can be supplemented by third party 40.5mm ND filters when/if needed.

The NRW (raw) files and jpg files have the same file name when you shoot raw+jpg. You cannot view raw files on the camera when you shoot raw+jpeg. They must be transferred to a computer running Nikon View NX2 or Capture.
You must have the correct version of View NX2, it can be downloaded here, free.

Sounds like you have it set right. Are you pointing the remote at the infrared receiver ? It is on the front right of the camera right below the "n" in "Nikon". The ML-L3 is infrared and you must point it at the receiver in order for it to work.
