Release Notes:

Under the hood, this is a major new version of Sofortbild, built on a modern 64-bit foundation, using new libraries supplied by Nikon. It adds support for all the latest Nikon DSLR camera model and the Nikon 1V3. It also supports macOS High Sierra, macOS Sierra and OS X El Capitan.

On the downside, we can no longer support many older models, as Nikon no longer supplies libraries for those. Also, Sofortbild now requires OS X El Capitan or later, due to compatibility limitations of the Nikon libraries.

We know there are issues with certain camera models under certain conditions. As we cannot possibly have and test all Nikon cameras, we decided to release this version now and try to further improve compatibility in upcoming releases.

Learn to write useful reviews. - The primary key in reviewing a app is to provide specific enough detail to allow whoever reads it to find value in the review. If the app was unplayable or tried to scam you out of money we could both agree that the app deserves a bad review. Technical issues can be resolved if you first contact the developers rather than run to the review section to give them a 1 star rating. You will likely get a response back from developers that are current with their app. Don’t let good apps suffer because they’re filled with un-detailed 1 star reviews. Remember you are writing the review to help other buyer make a decision. This is not the space for your personal attacks or to ask for additional features. It’s not about YOU, it’s about the next person.

Version 1.2.5
Review by icngacsn

Does not work for D7100 - It looks like a wonderful app but unfortunately although the author states the d7100 is supported, it does not recognize my camera. A quick web search shows many d7100 users in the same situation. I have emailed for support but have not received a response. I’m not holding my breath since the last update was in 2012...
