Nikon Capture NX-D Ver. 1 Released

Nikon NX-D

After several months of beta versions being available, Nikon has released a final version of Capture NX-D with support for RAW files from Nikon cameras, including the new D810.

The new version of Capture NX-D is a totally new version and does not rely on the underlying code of previous versions of Capture NX. As such, it no longer offers the Control Point adjustments that were prominent in older versions of Capture NX. Instead, it appears that Capture NX-D is a custom version of Silkypix.

Capture NX-D is available as a free download here on Nikon’s website.
