Nikon Releases Raw Image Processing and Adjustment Software, Capture NX-D

Mississauga, ON, February 24, 2014 – Nikon Canada is pleased to announce that a beta version of Capture NX-D will be available free of charge beginning today. Capture NX-D is new software for processing and adjusting RAW images captured with Nikon digital cameras.

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

During the period that Capture NX-D is available as a beta version, Nikon will invite users to try the software, and will collect feedback from them about the user experience and the application. Nikon will then use this information to improve the application prior to its official release.

The new software will support many functions needed by professional photographers including batch image processing, filtering and an enhanced user interface with a variety of displays and floating palettes that are ideal for multiple monitors. Additionally, photographers will have the ability to adjust parameters including exposure and white balance in RAW files, and can adjust tone curves, brightness and contrast, as well as functions for correcting lateral colour aberration and vignetting in JPEG and TIFF files. The software features a new “sidecar” format, which retains and saves the adjusted image as a separate file.

Nikon will continue to update and provide support for the current Capture NX 2 application while the beta version of Capture NX-D is available. Once the official version of Capture NX-D is released, Capture NX 2 will no longer be supported with updates.
