Nikon does it again. Remember when they had encrypted the Raw files in the D2X so that you HAD to buy Nikon Capture to convert the files, because no third party converter could read them? There was - and justly so - an outrage, so they finally gave up and distributed a development kit to third party converter makers. But at least, if you were forced to buy Capture, you got Camera Control with it. Now, they're at it again. They don't bundle Capture NX with the $5,000 D3, in the hope that D3 buyers will buy it as well. But now they know Adobe offers alternative in Lightroom as well as PS CS3 and ACR. And so does Capture One 4 (though this one is a total mess after the previous version) and that you don't HAVE to buy Capture NX (especially since it is badly implemented, counter-intuitive, undecipherable and slow as mollases), so what do they do? They remove Camera Control from Capture NX so that, in essence, you still HAVE to buy another Nikon piece of software, which should have been bundled in the first place. I mean, come on, a $5,000 piece of kit?

Cheap and mean.
