I'm seeing a lot of searches about green pictures in Nikon View landing here.Affected users are kindly invited to send me the following, so we can analyze what's going on.
There is a rising number of users who report that - at least - Nikon View NX does not work on Apple's latest OS, "Snow Leopard". Nikon are currently addressing this issue and testing the Mac versions of their software for release in the near future. More info here.
Nikon have just launched the long awaited D3S professional FX camera. As the D3, it is equipped with Nikon's 12.1 effective Mp. CMOS sensor, but with an extended standard ISO range of 12.800 and an ISO-max of 102.400.
That Nikon has discontinued the camera that - for quite a while - was considered the best pro camera for enthusiasts, is no surprise considering the recent launch of the Nikon D300S.
Comparing all the mayor contenders in the RAW conversion field leaves us with only one conclusion: there is no real "champion". Some images are better off with program x, while others with program y. However, and in spite of its shortcomings and elevated price, the Bridge/Photoshop/ACR/DNG Converter combo is the more obvious choice for those who routinely convert large amounts of RAW images.
Adobe have just published a ACR release candidate 5.5, which adds support for the Nikon D300S, D3000, Olympus E-P1 and the Panasonic DMC-FZ35.
It is fairly common to see people desperately searching the Web, because their version of Photoshop, Lightroom or Elements refuses to open the RAW files of their new camera, mostly generating either a "File not supported" or a far more scary "This file may be corrupted" message.The same may happen in Nikon Capture, and in both cases you need to update the ACR plugin or even upgrade your software.
