Any Nikon shooters that use Nikon Capture NX 2 care to comment on the practical benefits of the two recent updates referenced below?


I would be especially interested in dealing with images taken with a Full Frame body and the 14-24 zoom.




Capture NX 2.4.4

•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.


Distortion control data

New firmware - (L) Version  1.009

[Supported cameras]

D4 / D90 / D600 / D800 / D800E /D3100 / D3200 / D5000 / D5100 / D5200 / D7000 / D7100

Distortion control data are used to correct barrel and pincushion distortion during shooting and editing. They can be loaded into cameras that support distortion control.

Looks like it is intended for the new Nikon water resistant Nikon 1 system camera, not for housed Nikon systems
