Is Nikon Capture NX-D free?

Is Nikon Capture NX-D any good?
Yes. If you own a Nikon camera which produces a Nikon raw (NEF) file and you don’t already own software you have paid for ( like photoshop), then you should certainly try Capture NX-D. Although you can use NX-D to edit JPEG or TIFF files, it really comes into its own when you shoot in NEF format. NEF files store a considerable amount of information which is not stored when you shoot JPEG. If you own a Nikon but don’t shoot NEF files you should consider making use of the extra options and flexibility you get from NEF.
