Free upgrade to Capture NX 2 if...

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by jemaerca, Aug 6, 2008.

  1. ...you bought Capture NX 1 between May through the end of 2008.

    From bythom.com:

    Aug 3--NikonUSA has announced that those that purchased a copy of Capture NX from an authorized source in the period May 1 through December 31, 2008, are entitled to receive a free update to Capture NX2. You need to call 800-645-6689 with your license key and provide proof of purchase. (Just a note: yes, those dates are right. Apparently Nikon is anticipating what might happen if someone buys a copy of the previous version of Capture NX that is still in the retail channel.)

    Do you know if that includes those of us who got Capture NX with a new D300? I'll have to call tonight and see.....
  3. I believe it's only for retail purchases of the software (meaning not bundled with a camera). Can't hurt to ask though...

    Cool beans!

    ...just got off the phone with Nikon support and my upgrade is on its way! :smile:
  5. LOL - now you're talking! That's the perfect rationale to present when you call!

  6. Hmm...thanks for the info. I'm going to find out when I bought my NX 1 copy to see if I qualify for NX2.
  7. Wait...i bought a D300, i thought we got ViewNX, not capture ::runs over to D300 box:: am i missing something? Oh its a trial.
    Why dont people like Photoshop? I mean is NX2 better somehow? I got the Adobe Master Collection CS3 from...places....which is better?

    Just talked to Nikon in Europe and it looks as if we're not getting the same treatment over here. Oh well. On the bright side, he did say that if I bought Capture NX from a US dealer, NikonUSA will honour the upgrade despite my location. No idea if that's verified or not though
  9. James, the early batches of the D3 and D300 came with a full version of Capture NX1. I believe these copies of NX1 are not eligible for the free upgrade :( 
  10. Whats up with that? Why only the early batches? Arggggggg::like charlie brown::
