Two days ago Nikon nicely informed the world about an upcoming free update of Capture NX 2:
Tokyo — Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce that from the beginning of April 2009, they will offer a free download of image-editing software Capture NX 2, Ver. 2.2 to current users of Versions 2.0 and 2.1.1. In addition to providing the features of earlier versions, which allow quick-and-easy on-image photo editing to optimize photographer workflow, this latest version includes more powerful and refined tools to greatly improve image-processing efficiency. Newly added functions include improved speed in batch processing, Intel-approved logo permitted for Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad support, NRW (COOLPIX P6000’s RAW data) support, vignette control function utilizing lens information, and axial color aberration correction.
This part is interesting:
NRW, a form of RAW data taken with the COOLPIX P6000, is newly supported.
Was this done just for the P6000? A little bit too late, or maybe Nikon had something else in mind.
