Buy Nikon Capture NX !

Capture Peter Schulz's write up about Nikon NX on Digital Diver

The DP Review consensus is that NX produces the highest quality images but is slower than some other programs.

I own NX and Adobe CS2 and Bible plus I have tried a lot of others. As far as I'm concerned, NX can't be beat re image quality.

Try this. Shoot in RAW and JPEG at the same time. Then open the RAW image in NX and save it as a JPEG. When I do this the JPEGs are identical. Point being, I think the NX conversion engine is based on the same thinking that went into the Nikon camera conversion engine. Stated another way, I think Nikon knows their camera better than any other software company and has the luxury of applying this knowledge in NX with only the need to work for their cameras.

As for work flow, I open in NX and make my basic adjustments in NX. Then I save as a TIFF and open in Adobe CS2 for a few final adjustments e.g. Shadows and Highlights and sharpening.
