Corner Compilation #3

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally to the point where I can start catching up on photography industry news. Some of this news dates back over 2 months, but better late than never, eh? I’ll try not to cram too much into each Corner Compilation post, so expect about 10-12 “bits of news” in each compilation. Hopefully I’ll be all caught up in a matter of weeks (cross your fingers). Enjoy the news (mostly Delkin and Lowepro this time around, but trust me, there’s a lot more coming)!

Press Release: Nikon Introduces All-New Capture NX Software

Last year, Nikon announced the release of their new image processing and editing software, Capture NX. It claims to be a “powerful and intuitive new software [that] simplifies workflow while reducing the time and effort required to edit and process images.” From what I’ve seen of Capture NX, it is a pretty big improvement over their previous software Nikon Capture 4. If you’re somewhat computer literate, (even if you barely know how to submit your site to a photography directory), it’s easy and intuitive enough to figure out - especially if you have some experience in a program like Photoshop. Obviously the software is only good for those of us that own a Nikon camera (sorry Canon/Olympus/Fuji/Pentax/Other owners), and there are no plans to expand the software to work with other RAW formats (as far as I’ve heard).

Kodak - The Winds of Change (Video)
