  • Excerpt: just purchased this and got version 2.2; well I got nothing but tech issues with this, would not save in NEF, then saved as jpeg and got tiny files, the crop gave really weird results, kept freezing/crashing and many more I looked around and found out the version mailed to me is old, and no new upgrades found on install It is now 2.4.7, uninstalled 2.2, got the free trial and now works much better maybe they should just mail you a key and you go direct to download to get...

Good Editing Software, but....

The McKenzie Kid, B&H Photo
11 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Capture Nx2 is for me an intuitive program to use. It is closely related to how Nikon cameras store information, so it gives me some insights into settings on my camera. Corrections and adjustments can be made locally to an area of an image or globally. The controls are similar to those used in NIK software now owned by Google.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Navigate, Versatile

Integration with D800 not easy

rplock53, B&H Photo
26 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Recently I bought a D800. As part of the hardware upgrade, I did a software upgrade from Capture NX to NX2 using the upgrade route rather than the full product route. I took my first pictures and downloaded it using what I though was the new version; NX2. To my shock when I looked at the Metadata panel, it said my image Size was 1632 x 1080 ; 12 BIT! I shot the image in 7360 and 14 Bit. It took me 2 weeks to figure out the issue. It is not the camera, it is the software.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls

Wonderful program but seriously in need of an update

  • Summary: Editing in raw format with U-point technology and nondestructively is the way to go for those of us who shoot with Nikon equipment. However, as others have noted, this program is seriously in need of an update, especially to take advantage of the improvements and new plug-ins developed by Nik Software (e.g., Color Efex Pro 4.0, HDR Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro 2.0). To take advantage of these now, I am editing tifs and jpgs in Photoshop, which is a pain.

Not bad but I prefer Lightroom...

agr architect, B&H Photo
25 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I use this when I want a quick jpg from a raw file & don't want to bother with Lightroom, especially since Lightroom 3 has some problemns with nef files. I don't know the software well yet but Lightroom seems to have much more power and versitality - but much more expensive too. There is also a problem with Nikon's Message Center SW & Win 7 that Nikon tech suppt seems clueless about & unable to fix so far.
  • Pros: Relatively easy to use
