I've always used Capture until recently for my Raw conversions and my workflow has been such that I have done my initial sharpening (rightly or wrongly) in Capture using the 66/6/5 setting, with excellent results. If needed, I might apply a bit of final USM in Photoshop at the end. This all changed when I bought a 8800 whilst overseas as a carry-around camera. The conversion process in raw with the 8800 is more painfully slow than one can imagine on Capture, a simple movement of most any sliders will result is several minutes of processing time, such that it's very hard to remember what you had before. I suspect that Nikon will need to do a major upgrade of capture for the D2X otherwise it will probably just not handle files in a way that is acceptable to most users. Because of this I have started using the CS Raw converter, only sharpening with USM right at the end and not in the conversion process. Because CS conversion is just so fast, I've been using it for all my Thailand images. But some of them, even with heavy USM (110/2.5/0) look out of focus --- but use my tradition workflow in Capture and they look just fine.Or, when I sharpen in Photoshop they just lack the detail and clarity of Capture results. This scares the hell out of me for several reasons - one, I've abandoned quite a few images because they looked out of focus even with USM in CS, but they may well look fine in Capture, and two - I've spent hours proocessing images that may have well looked a lot better done initially in Capture, and the thought of starting all over again is just too much. I'm not that technical, so can some of you real experts out there tell me if there really is a substantial output difference between the two products, or am I doing something horribly wrong? Finally. if there is a difference, which I suspect there is, why would that be so marked? Thanks in advance.
