Subject: Re: ACR v3.2 D2x white balance still not correct

Chip, I'm in exactly your position except that the Nikon is already ordered. When I tested my well-used S2's and a friend's S3 against the D2x for image quality, the decision was easy. (Well, the cost made me think for a while, but...)

The answer to your question, in my opinion, is a resounding yes and no.

ACR 2.4 and 3.1 both needed tweaking to give me satisfactory renditions of Fuji's raw files, and they've never exactly matched Fuji's Raw File Converter output. But (like you, apparently) I've found ACR's results generally excellent and its workflow options -- especially in 3.1 -- superior.

ACR's interpretation of your images won't exactly match Nikon Capture's, as noted above by Jason. But ACR can be calibrated, either by eye or, if you need very high accuracy, by more elaborate methods. Once you create your own ACR conversion settings or your own camera profile, what advantage will NC have?

And by the way -- off topic -- why is Nikon charging $100 for the software you need to use their $5000 camera? And off-off topic, what are we doing on a Saturday evening rooting around in the Adobe forums?
