    Nikon sent me a free Nikon Capture NX software as I bought their D200 DSLR. What I wondered is anyone familier with this software, is it any better than Photoshop, I will install it on the PC soon and then see how I get on with it, but I would be interested to know what the other photographers think of it.

    Sorry Ed, never used it as the only Nikons I've owned were film cameras. Maybe have a peek on www.dpreview.com as they may have covered it. Is Capture the software that converts RAW files?, or does it do more than that? Without looking at the Nion website I'm not 100% what it actually does. I'm sure it's the RAW converter, just wasn't sure if it did other stuff too?

    Duncan, at the moment as I have not put it on the PC yet I am not too sure what it does, but I do know it will convert REW Files though.

    ...time to dust off my photography knowledge lol.

    I was seriously into it all about 18 months ago, but haven't done it for a while. I have the older D70 digital slr, been thinking of getting Capture NX for a while but couldn't justify the outlay as I'm not regular with it all anymore!

    I've used older versions of the software, if you shoot RAW its great. There used to be other free offerings such as RawShooter Essentials, but Adobe gobbled that up and its now incorporated into there Lightroom product.

    I wouldn't say its in the same league as Photoshop (but its a damn site cheaper!)

    I'd be interested to know how you got on with it...

    I have used Nikon Capture 4.4 but only as RAW converter and using it for basic stuff like making the picture B&W or a bit of colour enhancing etc.

    Think the NX is the new version.

    it'll depend on what u wanna do with your photos, simple touch ups conversions etc then the nikon software is ok, but id just stick with photoshop cs2 cuz itll probably do all that and more (If your thinking of purchasing photoshop then avoid CS3 cuz it has a few issues such as taking AAAAAAAAAAGES to open files, which i hope theyll fix soon)

    (Running a quad core xeon with 4 gigs of ram so i dont think its due to a slow pc)
