I read elswhere where a couple of P7000 users have noticed that Capture NX2 v 2.2.5 is unable to open any P7000 NRW file taken while using any Nikon external speedlight. No problem using the internal flash, but the program chokes every time when you try to open any NRW file taken with an external flash. I have verified this problem using an SB-400. Others have had the problem using an SB-800.

View NX2 v 2.0.1 has no problem opening the same file, will open the file in full screen view, and will even display the raw data by clicking the RAW button. Even more strange is that Capture NX2 will display a thumbnail of the file in its own browser, but will refuse to open it in the editor.

The user on the other forum opened an incident with the speedlight area of Nikon support. It seems pretty clear to me that the issue is with Capture NX2, so I opened an incident with Nikon software support. Looks like we'll have to wait for either an update to the P7000 firmware or an update to Capture NX2 to be able to edit NRW files taken with an external speedlight.
