    Nikon Capture NX Beta

    Here is an article on a Beta copy of NX.

    Looking forward to actually trying this out. If it's better than NC4 then it's a winner.

    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    Thanks for the link, George.

    Capture NX looks great, I like the new U Point stuff. Also, it looks like it will be a lot easier to use. The one thing I don't like about Capture 4 is these two toolbars on the right, they always seem to be covering each other. I'm definitly looking forward to using Capture NX (if only I had the money, I still have so much other equipment on my wishlist )

    One obvious initial (remaining) question is how much for the upgrade?
    Another, based on info in the article, is will the Nikon Camera Capture Control plug-in be a free download, or an additional cost?

    Beyond that, this article mostly adds detail to what we already knew. I do particularly like the idea of multiple versions of an NEF file, all taking up one single space. Of course, I don't know why someone didn't think of this before. The raw data doesn't change, so you have the raw data and a sets of extended data for each version of the NEF. Since the vast bulk of the data is the raw data, each version only adds a small amount of disk space. Over time, this will save me money on hard drives, DVDs and other storage media.

    In the original release there was a mention of a special price for NC4 owners. Speculation is that the retail price will be $149 (similar to Phase One LE), so I'm hoping that, worst case, it will be $49 and best case, maybe $29. I don't see free in the cards.

    That's exactly the thinking behind Apple's Aperture raw software, the original file always remains, all adjustments are just that - adjustments that only come into play when "called" by the program.
