Announcing a new RAW image processing software: Capture NX-D

Nikon are pleased to announce the release of Capture NX-D (beta version).

Capture NX-D is a free software application that will replace the current Capture NX 2 application. RAW images (with the NEF or NRW file extension) captured with Nikon DSLR cameras, Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses, and Nikon COOLPIX compact digital cameras can be loaded into the application for high-quality photofinishing through the processing and adjustment of images after they are captured. In addition to RAW images, the application can also be used to adjust JPEG and TIFF files.

Primary Features

  • Adjustment functions specialised for RAW processing
  • Support for simple adjustment of JPEG and TIFF images
  • Floating palettes that are easy to use with multiple screens
  • A variety of displays, including comparisons of multiple images and adjustment before-and-after images
  • Adoption of a sidecar format that saves original data as non-destructive files

During the period that Capture NX-D (beta version) is available, Nikon will collect requests and ideas from users to improve the application prior to its official release scheduled for this winter.
