Re: Capture NX2 or Lightroom 4?

As I always mention in these threads, CNX (and View NX) inflates the NEF file size by saving a full-size jpeg preview or embeds a quarter-sized preview.   For a D5100 file that means doubling the size on save or not being able to see preview images in Windows.  For higher res cameras with larger RAW files, it's a smaller percentage.

Also, CNX is terrible for organizing and handling files compared to LR.

After way longer than I'd like to admint I have a LR preset that mimics the portrait picture control in one click with just WB, toning, and crop to do from there.
