Summary: I would say this is the right software, this is the one. I've tried others but Capture NX2 is the one that brings better quality and the right options for photographs, photographs taken on Nikon cameras. There is no better choice. You may decide to use other software, there are really good ones, it is also a personal choice, but if you take NEF files, there are no one better than Capture NX2 working together with View NX2.
Summary: It's a simple to use, yet powerful software. I use it most of the times even for portrait retouching on "easy" photos. It is possible to apply multiple similar adjustments, something you can't in ACR or LR.
Summary: Software que apresenta ferramenta completas e eficientes no tratamento da fotografia , apresentado excelente resultado pelo seu valor de aquisição, permitindo ter uma ferramenta util por uma relação custo beneficios muito bom .
Summary: I believe NX2 is grossly underrated by many of the reviewers. I have been using Nikon Capture software for several years as the first, and often, the only stop in my workflow. And I have edited untold thousands of images with different versions of NX. NX2 is simply amazing in its versatility and feature set when working with RAW files, and produces the best image quality, by far, as compared to the best pro-level editors.
Summary: I started using Capture NX a few years ago and upgraded to NX2 along the way. There was some flakiness early on, but I must say the latest version (2.2.6) is very stable and bug-free on my aging 32-bit Win XP box. (Can't vouch for other platforms.) It's reasonably fast, if not zippy, with a Core2Quad processor, and it even runs well enough on my Core2Duo notebook that it does occasional duty there when I go mobile.
Excerpt: This is an excellent product and despite the fact that Nikon does not have the best name in software this program works very well with my D3 and enables me to do things to my photos that gives me some considerable satisfaction and supports the quality name of Nikon images.
Pros: Good Customer Service, Good interface, Good Product Support, Intuitive software, Reliable, Value for money
Excerpt: I SPEND LOTS OF TIME TAKING AND EDITION PHOTOS. I HAVE USED VARIOUS SOFTWARE BUT NOW USE NX2 EXCLUSIVELY. OTHER PRODUCTS HAVE MANY OF THE SAME FEATURES BUT I FIND NX2 TO OFFER WHAT I NEED, AND IT IS FUN TO USE.
