As a new D200 owner I thought it would be a good idea to check out Capture (especially since Apple iPhoto won't read D200 Raw files)

The latest trial you can get is V4.2. However this doesn't understand D200 Raw files. OK, so download 4.4.1 upgrade. Unfortunately this will not upgrade V4.2.

I suggest D200 owners do not bother yet, but wait till Nikon get their act together.

The D200 camera is wonderful, associated software is dreadful. Don't waste your time.

Sit file says 4.3.2 installer claims it will install 4.3.1 and then can't even find 4.2.X to update! Typical Nikon sloppiness

Capture 4.2.1 offers a level of control not available with the Photoshop CS RAw plugin. Having said that, Capture is extremely slow and poorly implemented in certain regards. For example, it can take a minute or more just to zoom to 100% magnification! Capture ignores the Mac command to stop operations: typing Command-Period should immediately halt any process but it does not and you can sit there waiting for a minute or more before Capture finished the operation it is working on. Another problem is that where there are several parameters to set for a particular control, such as Noise Reduction, changing any one of them causes Capture to launch into a lengthy processing operation before you can change another setting. it can take several minutes just to select the options you want.

Unless you are EXTREMELY patient Nikon Capture will drive you insane.

Its the ugliest software for X that I know of, the interface bears no resemblance to any apps I have ever seen, and overall speed is slow. That said, since the adobe RAW converter does not accurately display color from nikon NEF, this software is absolutely essential. Until Adobe steps up to the plate, this software will always have a market. It works.

Actually Adobe RAW shows exactly the right color in a RAW image. Nikon Capure adds the in camera color info to the image, yet if that was what was important to you, then you should proably save your diskspace and shoot JPEGs not RAW

Exactly, Adobe doesn't interpret Nikon color correctly... its a difference of symantics, you say it is added information (proprietary to manufacturer), I say its something that the RAW converter should interpret. Adobe sits on its high horse and wants everyone to play their way, well good, it makes a nice market for Nikon aftermarket software, which I will happily buy until Adobe "gets it right". Please don't belittle me with comments like "use jpg's". Lets face it, if Adobe were good at interpreting RAW, Nikon would have no market for this software. My experience indicates that color rendition of RAW is always much better with Nikon Capture than PS, not to say you can't get the same results from PS, just that its much more work.

Nikon had a very rocky transition to OSX with many stumbles and poor performance issues for all their software.

But they have regularly updated the software to improve speed, functionality and stability. Each update offers incremental refinements and NC4 is vastly better than NC3 was and both 4.0.1 and this updater installed smoothly and issue-free.

Nikon Capture features extensive, deep image processing options, far more than PSCS NEF support does. Don't need it often, but very glad to have at the ready for difficult images.

Did you get the camera through Nikon or one of those "discount" dealers? Things like what you're describing are quickly becoming normal occurrences from "discount" dealers.

Does a great job handling Nikon RAW files. That is all I really use it for.
I use it instead of Adobe or other third party RAW converters because Nikon created the proprietary NEF file format and they know more abut converting it for use as a TIFF (or JPEG) than anyone else.

What technical data do you base this on? I bring nef files in through ps cs and they come in fast and quite well, my question is do they really come in better than ps cs.
Thanks Greg

Well. Actually, I have taken a closer look since then and done some more rigorous testing and have come to the conclusion that Photoshop CS does the better job at rendering .nef files.

It seems to have a slightly broader range (esp. in the shadows). Though Nikon produces a slightly "stretched", vertically, version when compared to Photoshop.

You shouldn't use this crapware for downloading pictures. OS X supports Coolpix 880 natively, no need to install useless software.
