Nikon Capture NX 2.2.7 and Camera Control Pro 2.9.0 are out

Nikon released new Capture NX 2.2.7 and Camera Control Pro 2.9.0 versions today.

Capture NX 2.2.7 changelog:

  • Support for RAW images captured with the D5100 has been added.
  • In some rare cases, when the Highlight Protection function under Quick Fix in the Develop section of the Edit List was applied to RAW images, edges around highlights were darkened.
  • When the Image Dust Off function under Camera & Lens Corrections in the Develop section of the Edit List was applied to reduce reflection of dust on the image sensor in images, the results of this dust reduction were sometimes noticeable.
  • When RAW images captured with the camera’s auto distortion control function enabled were opened, or the Auto Distortion function under Camera & Lens Corrections in the Develop section of the Edit List was set to Automatic for a RAW image, Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpectedly.
  • RAW images sometimes could not be opened, or, when attempting to open a RAW image, Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpectedly.
  • Mac OS X only - When an image was saved with Capture NX 2, time of the Date Created information recorded to Exif data was sometimes not correct.

Camera Control Pro 2.9.0 changelog:

  • Support for the D5100 has been added. However, the Custom Settings dialog, available from the Camera menu, cannot be used.
  • Support for the following D5100 features has been added.
    • Shooting using the High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature
    • Shooting in Special Effects mode (However, still images cannot be captured and movies cannot be recorded in Special Effects mode when live view mode is enabled.)
  • Support for Mac OS X version 10.6.6 has been added.

    Great to see Nikon releasing stuff despite the setbacks in Japan.

    nice quick move nikon…

    I’ve been hitting the “RAW images sometimes could not be opened, or, when attempting to open a RAW image, Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpectedly” problem for over a year and a half (possibly over two years ago). I have some RAW images that ALWAYS crashed NX2. This is long overdue. I started using ACR in CS4 because I got so fed up with NX2 and recently tried LR3, which in many ways I like better than NX2. Enough so, that while I’ll give NX2.7 a try, I doubt I’ll shell out the cash for NX3 if it ever comes out.

      well, NX2.2.7

    ViewNX2 still kills itself – fix that first!

    Ah yes, the blazing fast pace of development almost matches the blazing fast performance of this raw conversion proggie. Sigh…

    Sadly Nikon software sucks.
    They should outsource to a solid programming company and stick their logo on better products!

    NX2 was release in 2008. Seems like it should have been updated by now.

  • Dweeb

    Hahahaha this looser program is still stuck on V2. I dumped it for LR3 which is a joy to use.

    Quit unexpectantly? That’s the way it’s SUPPOSED to work!

    Remind me again — which Bush was president when it came out?

    Well, LR3 has allot of upsides compared to NX2, but it can’t match it in one critical department: Image Quality. Let’s see how you get the NX skin tones and gradients in LR. Even with the embedded Nikon profiles, it can’t match the NX, except in the detail department. For all I care, as a part time fashion photographer, LR3 is pretty useless if you want the real deal, better stick with NX or Capture One.

      Thank you.

      I agree with those wishing for more meaningful updates, but I like NX2. When I’m processing for quality, it’s really my only choice.

    • Dweeb

      I don’t deal with skintones. The perspective control is far more useful. The only thing NX did very well is CA removal. And quitting or hanging.

        +1

      I have to agree. When it really counts CNX2 is the only way to go. Having said that, Nikon is so far behind the curve with updating the software. I honestly cannot believe they would want their name on it.

      Thank God I am not a volume photographer and don’t need the ease of use LR3 provides. Also, I would be lost without the U-Point technology CNX2 provides in RAW. But PLEASE Nikon, come into the 21st century with this software!!

  • disiderio

    I believe what is killing it is the constant write to NEF workflow. Wouldn’t it be easier to work on a virtual copy with a sidecar file with the edits written to the NEF only at save stage?

    Would Nikon not benefit from releasing its source code as freeware?

    I would love to see a plugin for PS and LR. Best of both worlds with no real downside.
