In the computer world, a “third party” may refer to either a hardware manufacturer or a software developer. It is a label given to companies that produce hardware, software for another company’s product

Regardless whose camera you shoot with, no one understands the file that has been captured better than the manufacturer of the camera. In Nikon’s case Nikon makes the glass, grids the glass and coats the glass that is in every Nikkor lens. Nikon designs its own sensor based on the knowledge of making the glass, coating and lens. That sensor is then manufactured on machines called “steppers” that Nikon manufactures. (Nikon is the industry leader in laser lithography)

What that all means is that if you want the best possible file you need to use the raw processor made by the designers of the sensor and lens you are shooting with

In this workshop the world’s longest user of Nikon Capture software will take you through a soup to nuts, start to finish workflow with NX Studio.

The mission is to bring the Nikon experience to your computer with NX Studio, a comprehensive image-processing suite designed for viewing, processing and editing images captured with Nikon digital cameras. NX Studio integrates the image viewing features of View NX-i and processing/editing features of Capture NX-D into one piece of software, compatible with both Mac and Windows-based PC computers.
