Many times I've seen people questioning NX Capture. The reasons I use it over any other raw software are: 1. Ability to read camera settings 2. Ability to save NEF files with adjustments and filters (also Color Efex plug-in) 3. Speed and batch performance, which you get by turning off the editting cache and installing 2005 + 2008 of MS Visual C++ 4. View of adjusted NEF's in View NX 5. Auto adjustment of lens distortion 6. Sharpest pictures and most reliable color reproduction 7. Best whitebalance options 8. Excellent healing brush. I found, when I took pictures of a car and "healed the license plate, it copied the right two numbers in that place; leaving the plate number useless, but looking like it was real. As far as I know it's not a documented feature. 9. Save settings and apply on similar pictures. These are my personal favorites and I have PS CS4, but I hardly ever use it. Hope this is usefull to someone.
