Nikon Capture NX-D

1.5.3
16 May 2019

Digital image processing and editing software (was Capture NX).

Overview

Capture NX-D (was Capture NX) is a non-destructive RAW image processing application that utilizes a new sidecar system to save adjustments for Nikon photographers looking to make adjustments to their .NEF or .NRW files. Photographers who are used to working with their .NEF or .NRW files in Nikon Capture NX2 or Nikon View NX2 will find the new Capture NX-D quicker in its processing time and intuitive to use. Once the .NEF or .NRW file is processed, it can then be moved to other imaging applications in a 16-bit TIFF format with a single click of the mouse. Capture NX-D is designed to get the most out of Nikon RAW image files--so images will look as great as they do whether they're from the latest Nikon cameras or older files that you want to work on again.

I'd like to be able to use Nikon's Mac software, but it chronically crashes or otherwise weanies out. I've been duped into buying activation numbers for it over the years when purchasing Nikon camera equipment (no gripes there!), but it's never quite lived up to expectations. Even this new release of Capture sucks (immediately asks for a serial number or offers an option to purchase one, with no option to try it out). Quite expensive for something a more versatile, mainstream app like Adobe's Lightroom, Apple's Aperture or for that matter, Photoshop can take care of. Still hoping.

Just d/l for use with my Nikon DSLR and deleted within 30 minutes. Most confusing GUI and UX. No idea what was happening; I opened a NEF [Nikon RAW] file and tried to manipulate image. Waste of time. Back to Photoshop and Pixelmator for me. Been using PS for 20+ years and Pixelmator since release. Nikon GUI is a poor effort at 'converting' Windows icons and file management. I had hoped to use Nikon software for Nikon Raw files but clearly not going to happen. Train wreck of software. Your mileage may vary, and if you get it work, I am very happy for you, but my experience working a 44MB Raw file was something I never want to repeat, and I definitely won't be back.

The latest version of NX2 is version 2.3.0 and it's much faster than previous versions. Actions that took several seconds and sometimes minutes, are now processed much faster. The app is now 64-bit. This software is a great tool if you use Nikon DSLRs. What I still really miss is the possibility to use plugins as Silver Efex Pro™ 2 from NikSoftware. I hope that Nikon and NikSoftware eventually finally will decide to make it possible to use all of NikSooftwares plugins from within NX2. That will make my day!

With all it quirky ways, I would love to use CaptureNX2 but it doesn't play well with other apps. If only it supported DNG. I would buy it right away. An updated and working Snow Leopard compatible ViewNX would also not go amiss. But nobody from Nikon will read this.

Users are reporting that Capture NX 2 isn't functional on Snow Leopard. Nikon has not bothered to update Capture NX 2 (or its weaker cousin ViewNX) since SL was released. Their official policy is that they haven't decided IF they will support SL. TIP: If you want to use Nikon Capture NX 2 in Snow Leopard do not update it to v2.2.2 *after* you have installed Snow Leopard. Stick with v2.2.0 for now, which reportedly works. If you have installed v.2.2.2 *BEFORE* installing Snow Leopard, CaptureNX 2 may work for you.

Laughable - still no official support for Snow Leopard. Nikon's support site says that they expect to release updates in, like, January for their software suite.

Nikon Capture NX 2.20 unofficially works with Snow Leopard and 2.22 does not. I don't know about 2.2.3. Lack of official support is appalling.

Nikon = great hardware shame about their software (specially for Mac). As example I have a high end Nikon scanner - when it stopped working due to software (not compatible) their support told me to get Vuescan ....I will continue to buy their cameras but never again be fooled to get their other gear. Sidecomment to the others here...

Nikon Capture Nx 2.2.5 is still no 64bit app. How is it possible? When adjusting Exposure, contrast... with the sliders the update of the changes still take very long. For me it's just to slow to work with Running it on a late 2006 iMac 2.16GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 3GB of RAM under Snow Leopard. I still think its outrageous it does not come with a nikon camera like the D700. I would like to pay for it if it was working well, but that is not the case! My grandmother is faster than this software :)

I have a new macbook with Leopard and have photoshop cs2. I have been using iphoto to keep track/organize the photos but am disappointed that it does not keep track of all my camera settings for each image. For example, white balance doesn't seem to be captured. I haven't loaded the basic software nikon packed with my d80 (picture perfect?) but maybe that's what I need to try. I just heard that I couldn't work with RAW images without Nikon Capture nx and I didn't really want to pay the $150 for it. I could use advice on software that would be best to capture all Nikon camera settings, organize with ease and work in RAW, perferably for a decent price. From the reviews here and others I've seen, Capture NX is cumbersome and not working with Leopard that well anyway. Thanks!

This update appears to work with Leopard. It crashes immediately on a PowerPC running Tiger 10.4.11. A re-install of version 1.3.1 works fine in Tiger.
