Nikon Updates Capture Software for Intel-based Macs

Nikon has updated its Capture NX software to work with Intel-based Mac computers using the OS X operating system and says the updated version is faster and easier to use for all users.

Nikon unveiled a Beta version of the update at the January 9-12 MacWorld Conference in San Francisco.

The original version of Capture NX that shipped last August worked with both Windows and Mac computers, but not Intel-based Mac machines.

In addition to Intel Mac compatibility, Nikon says it has made several usability updates based on software testing and customer feedback. The user interface has been improved and updated to enable users to work faster, more effectively and more easily. Additional improvements include enhanced speed for faster and more effective workflow, resizable histograms and enhancements to the curves and levels palettes.

The Capture NX update lists for $149.95. Nikon says it will be available for download “as soon as it is ready for release” but did not specify how soon that might be. A 30-day trial version will be available for new users, and can be downloaded at, in the Software Download section.

Current users of Capture NX will be able to download an upgrade at no additional cost. A special limited-time upgrade price of $89.95 will be offered to current owners of Nikon Capture 4 software in the U.S. market. This upgrade will only be available online at for registered Nikon Capture 4 owners and will be limited to one upgrade per legitimate Nikon Capture 4 product key.
