I know people are upset about U-Point. So am I. I can kind of understand they've a licensing issue.
What puzzles me more is the lack of any localized edits. If there's a blemish, I don't see how to remove it. I don't even see red-eye removal.
The price is right and it is a respectable replacement for View NX2, but it has a long way to go to be a replacement for Capture NX2. I'll keep running Capture NX2 for now, but when it becomes too dated, I'm not sure what I'll resort to. I'd like to avoid Adobe, but we'll see.
Jun2: buy a camera with wifi
If buying new, yes. I'm not replacing my perfectly good D7000 just to get Wifi, when a sub $100 SD card will give me this feature.
It sure would be nice if Nikon could release a minor update of a product without a lot of people bashing them.
I don't know why the naysayers are so bloody vocal.
Mr Fartleberry: NX 2 = LOL Like using System 7.5 on a Mac.
Looking at your posting history, you're a very negative person. I hope you get better.
bigdaddave: A lovely bit of fun, but I hope this isn't being taken seriously as an 'artistic' project
I'd say even fewer people would consider the peanut butter floor to be art. I took at look at your link and felt sorry for the poor person that has to clean it up.
brn: To pull this off with a small flashlight is impressive. Unfortunately, it's not very interesting.
My critics missed my first sentence.
KariIceland: Okay for all the nay sayers here: Are you guys INSANE?!Also if you don't like it, go and make a BETTER one, put up or shut up.
Opinions are OK, yours included. They don't all have to be positive.

Unlike many posting here, I don't hate HDR. However, in these "photos" it's abused. Looks like something you'd see in a video game.
Will Edwards: It's not in my camera bag, but if in the city in the middle of the night or for sunrise shots, I carry a 9mm, and I know how to use it. If out in the woods, it's a 45mm. And I am not talking about camera lens.
Or at least not where the heck Will lives.
angrywhtman: Why no mention of Capture NX2?
View NX2 is the (Nikon specific) Lightroom competitor. Capture NX2 is much more than a Raw converter. It's much more capable than Lightroom.
GPW: Nikon can spend all this time and money on a web site, but not on a D300/S replacement, A.K.A D400???
Hugo, I find the output from the D90 to be of higher quality than that of the D7000.
How about a D90 replacement? I still recommend used D90's to people, as there's not an adequate replacement for price vs photo quality. Anything else in the Nikon lineup sacrifices too much or is at a much higher price point.
At the same time, I'm thinking of signing up for Nikon Image Space. Good for Nikon.
coudet: Typical - 80% of the pictures show human suffering.
ozturert, I assume you're referring to the photo of Li Wei.

Will the Android Version always be crippled or will we become a update?
Hoping JWest is correct. I don't see any iphone feature that the android shouldn't be able to handle just fine.
Lawrencew: Whilst there clearly some benefit in the remote wireless triggering, many of the options provided by the app are also provided by the Magic Lantern firmware if you can put that on your camera.
A key benefit of Magic Lantern in comparison is that options such as motion detection, facial recognition are enabled through the lens - hence they are based on what the lens sees, not the view from a mobile phone.
That said, there are going to be some situations where triggering based on what the mobile phone sees rather than what the camera sees can have other uses.
AV Janus, you were close. Californians think the United States (hence the internet) is populated only by Californians.
The rest of us know better.
brn: Won't run on Android 2.2. Curse my (less than a year old) phone!
LG Optimus V. LG supports 2.3 on it, but they Virgin never released 2.3 for it. They did have an update right when I bought the phone that prevents me from putting a third party ROM on it.

Roland Karlsson: The indoor cloud is cool. Thats an INVENTION! Me likes!
But - the cameras is an inventive product.
People have been making small indoor clouds for decades. The guy used a fog machine.
Cool, yes. Invention, no.
The real ones are impressive enough. No need for the fakes.
