This is pretty big news. Like the kind you get every ten years or so… When the new Nikon NX-D software got out of beta, I was skeptical, to say the least. But the release of Capture NX-D could not be more opportune. Although I have only reviewed Nikon NX-D briefly, the program is awesome, sofar! This is pretty big news. Like the kind you get every ten years or so… When the new Nikon NX-D software got out of beta, I was skeptical, to say the least.

The latest update of the Adobe Camera RAW plug-in and DNG converter – v.8.6 – supports all current and recent new Nikon cameras, including the D810.
Compatibility chart for Nikon DSLR cameras and Adobe Camera RAW, DNG converter. Includes all Nikon models Nikon since 1999, from the D1 to the D810 and all Photoshop versions since v.7. and ACR 1. Last update: June - 2016.
Adobe DNG Converter is - apart from View NX2 - the only free alternative if you run a version of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) that is incompatible with your new Nikon.

DNG files can be opened by ACR ever since the first version of Adobe Creative Suite.
Adobe Labs has released the Camera Raw and DNG converter Release Candidate v.6.7, while Nikon in recent weeks has released updates for View NX2, Capture NX2 and Camera Control pro. All these new releases add support for the Nikon D4, D800 and D800E and now all run natively on 64-bit systems. Download here.

I thought it could not get any worse after testing Capture NX2 and View NX1.5 a while ago, but I was wrong. NX2 is worse, at least from where I am standing. So much worse that I have not been able to thoroughly test it, not on Windows XP Pro x64 nor on a "standard" XP Pro 32 system.
