Browse your camera RAW files on Vista x64

Since Canon does not seem to want to support 64 bit versions of Windows, many Canon/Windows users are having to hit the net for a codec solution.  I being one of them, found this nice free program @  The FastStone Image Viewer supports most new RAW formats.

What I was really looking for was a way to view thumbnails in Windows Explorer, which you can find here:  It’s $30 for CR2 support, which is pricey since it’s only CR2 support.  DNG and NEF are also $30 each.  If you can not live without thumbnails in Windows Explorer, it seems to work fine.  I downloaded the trial version and it worked as stated.  But for the price, FastStone Image Viewer can’t be beat.
