Is the new NX version (just found out about this) resolve the issues it seems everyone had with the first version i.e slowness, ....slownesss...Opinions? I literally stopped using my D300 because of this and shot only with my D200.

I cannot imagine not using my D300. NX2 works fine on my machine and it is 4 years old. It is not the fastest kid on the block, but well worth it for the results I get.

There is a wealth of information in the sub category (Nikon Capture NX) that can help with your set up and configuration of NX2. I'd suggest reading it and comping back with more questions. In particular read the Sticky.

Never used NX but I find the speed of NX2 acceptable. I find raw conversion using Lightroom is faster but NX2 gives me better results. As I don't have to process hundreds of images a day I find the time issue of lesser importance.

not much

I didn't see much of a speed improvement with NX2. Still very slow on my machine, which admittedly is behind the curve (Athlon 2800 and 1GB).

I recommend taking advantage of the 60-day trial version to see for yourself, but only after following Tom's tutorial currently located in the Capture NX sticky area that Nick mentioned. That's because the perceptions vary depending on the users' understandably subjective impressions, the technical specifications of the computer, how you configure NX2 caches, etc.

thanks for that tip...I've just been really frustrated with the speed of NX; as many users seem to be. It just puts a damper on my editing knowing I'm going to have to deal with that element.

Hi Nancy,
i totally agree to You-
one funny thing - no female member ever claimed about speed issues or crashes regardig NX from its starting in 2006!
Only the masters of genesis do have the problems!

Conclusiion for me: women do have ther computers well oraganized and everytime update to the necessary state of os-development!

MAN DO HAVE A NEED ON MASTERING THE MACHINE BY "THEIR EXPERTISE" WITH THEIR OWN HANDS -
WOMEN ARE EXPERTS IN MASTERING THEIR WORK WITH THE MACHINE!

Well, thank you Tom, on behalf of women everywhere. I could not have said it better myself:biggrin::wink:

Cheers
Nancy
