I have been shooting raw and processing the raw files in various engines such as apple's Aperture, Adobe Photoshop, and Capture One for about 9 years now.

I just went and shot some images to try out Nikon Capture NX-D Beta. These files are at a better starting point and in some cases a better endpoint just loading them into NX-D then I seem to be able to achieve with the other raw converters. All the photos look exceptional and completely natural.

I'm shocked. I don't particularly care for the program, but the photos just look great.

Am I essentially witnessing the value of the software being able to read the in camera settings at the time I shot these RAW files?
