Nikon releases IPTC Preset Manager software for the D4

One of the interesting features of the D4 I hadn't yet mentioned in my hands-on report, is the fact that it has built-in support for 14 of the more important IPTC fields. Support for IPTC in-camera is particularly interesting as this is a first for a (Japanese) camera manufacturer (Japan doesn't really use the IPTC standard…)

Now with the delivery of the first D4s already occurring, Nikon today has released it's first version of the IPTC Preset Manager software. With the IPTC Preset Manager you can manage the 10 available in-camera IPTC slots and give them meaningful content in an easy way (certainly more easily than on the camera).

The D4 and the IPTC Preset Manager software support the following IPTC fields:
  • Caption
  • Event ID
  • Headline
  • Object Name
  • City
  • State
  • Country
  • Category
  • Supporting Category
  • Byline
  • Byline Title
  • Write/Editor
  • Credit
  • Source
You can download the software from your local Nikon support site, or directly using this link. The software is available both for Windows and Mac OS X.
Note: the software requires the latest version of Microsoft's Silverlight (version 5).
