I've been using the software that came with my d200 (PictureProject) to process my .NEF files. I mostly just sharpen them then export as a .TIF and do further work in Photoshop CS2. I use Picture Project first to process the file rather than Photoshop's RAW processor because I've heard one gets better results with color and sharpening if they use the native software that was designed for that cameras specific files. The only problem with my current process is I don't get a lot of control with Picture Project. I downloaded a demo of Capture NX the other day and I get much more control over my image ( like correcting WB ) that I don't get with Picture Project. So I'm considering buying NX but first I wanted to know if it is true, that I will get better a more accurate interoperation of the NEF file if I use NX or PP than if I go through Photoshop's RAW processor.
