Nikon just released an update for their editing software Capture NX2 ($139 at Amazon). This update provides support for the Nikon D3300 and also improves the white balance adjustments in the program for cameras newer than the D7000.

Nikon USA
Nikon Europe

Updates that apply to both the Windows and Macintosh versions:

– Support for RAW images captured with the D3300 has been added.
– Advanced settings, such as Sharpening, under Camera Settings > Picture Control in the Develop section of the Edit List palette can now be adjusted, even when Unchanged is selected for Picture Control when RAW images are opened.
– The following modifications and additions have been applied to White Balance > New WB in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette.
– An Auto 1 option has been added to White Balance > New WB options. Capture NX 2 adjusts white balance for colors similar to those achieved in images captured with a camera’s Auto 1 (Normal) * white balance setting.
However, only RAW images captured with the following cameras are supported.

– The D7000 and later digital SLR cameras
– Advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses
– The COOLPIX A as well as the COOLPIX P7100 and later COOLPIX cameras that support recording in the NRW format
*Auto white balance setting with cameras that do not offer an Auto 2 (Keep warm lighting colors) option
– Adjustment units available with the Tint option have been changed from 1 to 0.01 for more precise specification.
– The adjustment range for Fine Adjustment when Direct sunlight is selected for Daylight has been expanded from 4132–7042k to 2500–7042k.
– Adjustment using Fine Adjustment and Tint is now possible when Recorded Value, Auto 1, Auto 2, or Underwater is selected.

The following issues have been resolved:

Windows version only
An error occurred when XMP/IPTC files created with Capture NX 2.4.3 or earlier were opened:
Details specified in the Print layout dialog and page setup dialog displayed with selection of Page Setup… in the File menu were not applied.

Macintosh version only
When image files saved to a disk formatted using the FAT32 architecture were edited and saved, editing details were not applied.
Support for Mac OS X version 10.6 has been eliminated

Updates included with 2.4.5

Updates that apply to both the Windows and Macintosh versions
Support for RAW images captured with the D5300 and the Df has been added.
The Better Quality 2012 option under Noise Reduction in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette has been changed to Better Quality 2013.
Applicable from this version, Intensity and Sharpness can now be adjusted separately for both Luminance and Color. Therefore, when images to which Better Quality 2012 was applied with Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.4.4 or earlier are opened in Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.4.5, the effects of Noise Reduction adjustment may change.
Updates that apply to Macintosh versions:
Support with Macintosh OS 10.9, “Mavericks”, has been confirmed.

Updates enabled with 2.4.4

Updates that apply to both the Windows and Macintosh versions
Support for RAW images captured with the D610, Nikon 1 AW1, and COOLPIX P7800 has been added.
An Automatic (Underwater) option has been added to the Auto Distortion pull-down menu under Camera & Lens Corrections in the Adjust section of the Edit List. However, the Automatic (Underwater) option is only displayed when all of the following conditions are met:
The image was captured with an advanced camera with interchangeable lenses that supports underwater automatic distortion control, and a lens that also supports the function.
The image was captured in RAW format or in JPEG format with the camera’s Auto distortion control function disabled.
The following issues have been resolved with this release:
When the slider bar was manipulated while applying settings such as Gaussian Blur, High Pass, or Colorize, flicker in the form of random blocks was sometimes displayed.
For Windows only:
When OK in the Page Setup dialog opened from the Print layout dialog was clicked after changing printers using the Print button in the Print layout dialog, only the default printer (that is normally used) was named in the Printer section at top left in the Print layout dialog.
“aaa…” was displayed for Artist in the File & Camera Information section of the Metadata palette. (language versions other than the English version)
When an image was edited using the LCH tool in the Adjust section of the Edit List, a message prompting the user to restart the application was sometimes displayed.
