Nikon NX2 vs Photoshop Elements 8
With my birthday arriving soon its an opportune time for me to upgrade my Elements 6 to Elements 8 but have just noticed Nikon NX2 which looks pretty good according to the 'hype' on the Nikon website! I'm a very keen amateur but don't want the steep learning curve of a full Photoshop package. I have a Nikon D80 and shoot only in RAW. I often return home with a batch of 30 or more photographs for processing.
Can anyone give me advise on a comparison between Nikon NX2 and Elements please? I'd be happy to pay the extra for NX if its worth it.
I've recently got NX2 and also use PSE 6 on the mac. Of the 2, I prefer NX2, but they tend to excel at different things so I end up using both.
I've heard bad things about the speed NX2 runs at on the PC, but I've had no problems with the mac version.
Hope this helps.
I`ve got NX2, Photoshop CS2 and now Lightroom to try out. I`ve no doubt that I get best raw conversions through NX2 and the control points yo can use to adjust specific areas of an image and adjust everything from brightness/contrast/ saturation to colour balance are brilliant. It`s a shame it has not got just a little more functionality as I end up having to use CS2 as well for decent cloning/ other bits of editing and I am now seeing if Lightroom offers more. Then again the trouble with me is I end up not fully utilising all features of anything I get through not giving it time. Why not try out a free download and see if it world for you. It is slow (NX2) at time on my old PC but faster than lightroom.
