More Light shed on View Pro and Capture NX
The announcement of the new versions of Nikon View Pro and Capture NX have been raising quite a few questions. On a Nikon-related mailing list, a senior figure in the Software Applications group allayed some of the concerns in a recent post.
Michael Rubin's comments (valid only for the US market) indicate that Nikon will have two upgrade paths for current Capture owners. Only Capture 4.x versions will be considered. Pricing is still to be determined. While reserved on comments regarding speed, he indicated that many operations can now be done within a browser view similar to the Multi-Image window without significant performance impact. JPG, TIFF and other files (even taken with non-Nikon equipment) can be converted into true RAW/NEF and enjoy all the features therein. Tutorials are currently being prepared, but it would appear at this time that Nikonians will be very pleased with the results of the Nik Software alliance.
Members attending PMA in Orlando can see this detailed demonstration of the new software at the Nikon booth. And don't forget to visit the Nikonians booth #1759.
