"Nikon is venal!"

February 10, 2012  |  By JDBishop5

 |  Version: Nikon Capture NX 2 2.2.8

Pros

While you can use it, it actually pretty good.

Cons

You get two installations when you buy this product. By 'two' Nikon means, if your hard disk quits and you replace it, that's the second installation. If you buy a replacement computer, that's a second installation. If the hard disk quits on the new computer, buy the software again - no discount. If the computer manufacturer changes the operating system, that's another installation - buy it again. It is the only software example I am aware of that makes such a draconian restriction, has no upgrades for users, and we should force them to change. Use Photoshop. It will do about as well. There are other choices as well.

Summary

Overall, the software is fine, but the company sucks.

"Capture NX2 V2.2.7 Crashes On Snow Leopard 10.6.7"

June 24, 2011  |  By mundschenk

 |  Version: Nikon Capture NX 2 2.2.6

Pros

Couldn't use it because it crashed, but NX1 is a great raw converter

Cons

If you try to access any of the "preference" menu options, NX2 crashes.

Summary

DO NOT BUY THIS SW FOR MAC SNOW LEOPARD!!!
This error message was part of the MacBook log:
Jun 7 16:21:33 Russ-Mundschenks-MacBook-Pro-15 Capture NX 2[14627]: -[NSConcreteAttributedString initWithString:] called with nil string argument. This has undefined behavior and will raise an exception in post-Leopard linked apps. This warning is displayed only once.

"if yo have a Nikon and you shoot Raw, this is for you!"

May 24, 2011  |  By easyki

 |  Version: Nikon Capture NX 2 2.2.6

Pros

all the controls of your camera available. U point technology works amazingly fast. Superb image quality after print (far more better than Aperture or PS Elements I used before)

Cons

unstable sometimes. Had previously on my PC frequent crashing of the program. Now on my new IMac with I5 Intel processor, it's much more reliable, but still sometimes gets unstable.

"Still slooooow"

January 23, 2010  |  By jimkahnw

 |  Version: Nikon Capture NX 2.2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I really want to like this software. While not quite a Photoshop replacement, the image adjustment tools are comprehensive and the results superior to Adobe Camera RAW and Lightroom, especially when processing NEF native files. Nikon photographers can obtain better images compared with other tools. Color correction, local tone and exposure control can be quickly achieved. The masking tools are quite sophisticated, but easy to control. I'm guessing the Nikon engineers worked closely with NIK to assure close integration with Nikkor lenses and Nikon sensors allowing easy and effective correction of chromatic aberration, lens distortion and image sharpening -- results that would require a suite of third part plug-ins to achieve the same result using Photoshop.

But all this function comes at a terrible price: speed. I'm using a MacPro with 4GB memory and 2 x 2 MHz dual core Intel Xeon processors. Yet, most corrections require inordinate amount of time. I watch the status wheel spin and spin and spin for adjustments that ACR or LR accomplish in real time. Fortunately, CNX 2 offers batch processing which I can set up and leave working while I do something else.

Please Nikon, make this terrific software as fast as your competitors.

  • Support for RAW images captured with the D3S has been added.
  • When RAW (NEF/NRW) images with GPS information embedded were saved in JPEG format, GPS information was modified in some rare cases. This issue has been resolved.
  • An accurate flash compensation value was not displayed for images captured using Advanced Wireless Lighting. This issue has been reolved.
  • When the Verify button in the Profile First Aid panel of Mac OS X's Color Sync Utility was clicked to verify image profiles, they were recognized as bad files.
