Excerpt: Unlike Canon’s bundled-in editor , Capture NX2 is an added-cost option, though Nikon will occasionally include it as a freebie with DSLRs during sales promos. The pricing might be justified for members of the Nikon nation, as Capture NX2 offers considerable sophistication when editing Nikon-sourced raw files.

Pros: Rich feature set; control points ease complex selection; nondestructive.
Cons: No Photoshop integration; extra cost; wonky interface.
Excerpt: When Nikon's Capture NX software came out in the summer of 2006, it was a boon to Nikon shooters who wanted to make selective edits to their pictures without the time and trouble of making Photoshop-esque masks and selections. The new version takes selective editing to a new level - allowing you to use NX's control points to do more than ever before.
Nikon’s Capture NX 2; A Good Raw Editor Just Got Better
1 November 2001
Excerpt: The original Nikon Capture NX could be compared to a four-cylinder vehicle: it would take you where you wanted to go when it came to raw conversion of Nikon NEF files, but it wasn’t the best ride for image editing. Compared to that, the newly released Capture NX 2 can be described as a six-cylinder roadster—sleek, yet powerful enough for a long drive. The additions and changes add...
Excerpt: The Control Points are the main feature of Nikon's Capture NX, so it's reassuring to find they are actually incredibly simply to use and understand. Just place one (with a single mouse click) on a particular colour and you have control over that area of colour. You can change hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, red, green, blue and warmth by sliding the relevant control. It's really that simple.
Excerpt: Non c’è che dire: la concorrenza nella produzione di software per la gestione e l’elaborazione di immagini fotografiche è sempre più agguerrita e tutte le ditte impegnate su questo fronte devono costantemente realizzare prodotti stabili, affidabili ma soprattutto innovativi per continuare in questa competizione senza fine.
Summary: Capture NX2 jest bardzo ciekawym programem, który oferuje wiele innowacyjnych rozwiązań. Wystarczy wymienić takie narzędzia jak punkt kontroli czerni i bieli w której mamy wgląd do wszystkich zmian jakie wprowadziliśmy. Umożliwia ona także na cofnięcie się do dowolnej zmiany jaką wprowadziliśmy. Poza tym NX2 oferuje rozwinięte narzędzia do tworzenia selekcji.
Pros: + wykorzystanie technologii UPoint, + punkt kontroli czerni / bieli, + zaznaczenie punktem, + zaznaczenie pędzlem, + rozbudowany histogram z funkcją
Cons: - możliwość wywoływanie jedynie RAW-ów z Nikonów, - szybkość działania
