Nef to jpeg: Capture Nx2 or CS4 RAW 5.0

Sample 1


Sample 2


I've been reading some review done by most website doing comparison between cameras. When they do RAW shots comparison, they never clarify what software they use to convert the RAW file. I'm a little bit skeptic about it. The raw 5.0 by adobe still can't produce the exact color that came out from the Nikon cameras. When you do Nef conversion using Capture NX2, what you see is what you'll get. The RAW 5.0 in cs4 alter the color of the photo during conversion.

I never try capture one but I think capture NX2 still the best way to convert your NEF file. The capture one is not part of Nikon. the nikon software have its own color profile match to their camera color profile setting in Nef.

in my opinion,

no matter what conversion software used, the most important is the output and end product.

the only differences between software is the work flow and the user interface and extra function. photographer also need to understand and know available function and setting so that one can control any effect and filters to create the most good output photo.

photo shop considered the best photo professional editing software in the market. other serve the same function but cheaper.

I agreed no doubt that photoshop still the best photo editing software in world now. I used photoshop a lot in doing my photo editing. The only thing that turns me down is the raw conversion that Raw 5.0 altered the color of the raw photos taken from camera. A jpeg photos open in photoshop have no problem at all but Raw 5.0 still doesn't go along with NEF file. Which I hope adobe will take a serious look at this. I have talk about this to several well known photographers and they are agreed with me. For just being able to read Nef file and convert it is not good enough. To maintain the original colors of the images is what matters.
