Nikon delivers brand new Nikon NX-Studio

    Prompted by your post, I've just been giving it a try. Fairly horrible, I'd say. It runs appalling badly on my pretty new MacBook Pro: sometimes the screen blacks out when you move a slider, so you can't see the effect it has had until you stop. Sometimes it redraws the image in rectangular blocks, a bit at a time. 

    The only reasons I can think of so far for wanting to use it would be as a stopgap if Nikon brought out a new camera that wasn't yet supported by C1, or if its being free was an important consideration. I haven't compared it with the Express for Nikon version of C1, so I am not sure whether it has more or fewer features than that. But so far I wouldn't call it a serious contender compared with C1 Pro. 

    Others may have different views, of course.

    HEllo Ian,
    Thanks for giving it a go and feeding this discussion.
    Strange that you have so many problems.

    I run on an old Mac Pro (rev 5.1) - 11 years old on Mojave, and it goes "ok".

    As said, it is not a monster of speed - although the previews load almost instantly, even in 1000+ pictures folder. Much much faster than the old NX-D.

    Did not have black screens.
    But yes, the redraw is very slow once you are above 100% of the size. Below, it goes reasonably smoothly.

    For me, the biggest point is the ability to read the Nikon settings - on some images (mainly portraits), the skin tone difference is huge. Much smoother, more nuances.

    Well, in the meantime, I must say that NX-Studio, although slightly unstable and clearly not mature, is delivering very fine de-matricing results.

    Very useful also to see the "initial" white balance, when you have doubts on C1P.

    For me, it will be a keeper. With C1P on the side for finer and layers editing. But when a quick developing is needed, NX-Studio definitely does the job.
