Capture NX 2 from Nikon is a powerful image-editing application that lets photographers work with digital photographs with more speed and efficiency than other software programs. Its underlying technology gives photographers the ability to make selective corrections to an image with just one click. "Real World Capture NX 2," written by digital photography expert Ben Long, takes photographers behind the scenes to see how this innovative program works. Along the way, Ben offers valuable tips and techniques for getting the most out of the software and digital cameras.
Novice and expert photographers alike will benefit from Capture NX 2. New users can make advanced image corrections without learning sophisticated masking techniques. Advanced users can perform the complex edits they are accustomed to making in other programs in fewer steps. Any image corrections made with Capture NX 2 are non-destructive, which means that the actual image data is unaltered and reversible until the photographer achieves the best results. Photographers who use Nikon cameras have access to special software features for working with raw, JPEG and TIFF images.
Excellent Book on the new Capture NX 2
By M. Anderson - November 24, 2008
I have used Nikon Capture NX and Nikon Capture NX 2 for some time and I find the software to be excellent and to save a considerable amount of time in processing pictures vs using Photoshop. However, the instructions are not the best as provided by Nikon. I received this book last week and read it cover to cover. It is well written and it provides a wealth of information concerning the use of NX 2. It also explains other issues regarding how the camera records information and in particular Nikon Raw Files and how they work. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in using Nikon Capture NX 2.
One of the best "HowTo" books I have ever read
By Mike - November 25, 2008
I was really struggling to learn how to use NX2 so I ordered this book. What a pleasure to find something so well written, informative, and useful.
The author has a real knack for logically laying out what you need to learn and building up your skill set. And he seems to know when you'll need a little extra help. Every time I start wondering ....well now how...?...he has a Tip, or an explanatory paragraph, or simply says "we'll do more on that later".
His writing style is simple, friendly, easy to understand, non technical. When he does have to explain something that is somewhat technical he uses terms we civilians can understand, not technical photogeek jargon.
There are a lot of useful pictures and illustrations which really helps.

If your interested in the Nikon Capture program you'll have a diffucult time learning it from the manual provided. It's a begining but won't teach you all the intricacies of the program so you can really get everthing out of the program and completely understand it. I recommend this book for it's in depth explanation and approach that is easily understood. The author's has a down to earth manner that makes you feel comfotable with him, the book, and the program. If you want your money's worth for what you've spent to acquire this program, then don't cut yourself short and buy this book. You won't feel that the money was misspent. This is now my go to program and this book made it possible.
