Nikon Capture NX-D Officially Released, Free for Download


Capture NX-D is a software application developed to allow users to enjoy full-scale development of RAW images with simple operations. It enables high-quality photofinishing of images captured in RAW format by Nikon digital SLR cameras, Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses, and COOLPIX compact cameras that support this capability. The application will be available for download, free of charge, to allow those who own a Nikon camera to more thoroughly enjoy developing RAW images.

The official version of this application will reflect ideas and requests of users of the beta version with improvements to the user interface, and the ways in which adjustments are applied, for example, to white balance. Support for RAW images captured with the Nikon D810 digital SLR camera, which was announced today, has also been added. The improved Picture Control system, when working with Capture NX-D, allows for direct adjustments to images captured with the D810 and earlier Nikon cameras.

    I’ve been using NX2 for a couple of years now and thoroughly enjoy using it. It is intuitive and easy for a novice to get a handle on. What is up with NXD? It’s user interface is confusing and controls obtuse. Instead of changing it all, why not simply add to or improve on what you had?
