A free trial is available from Corel's website.

Bibble goes V1.0 - Open D1 NEF files
I've had my eye on Bibble for a while, now it's gone version 1 I thought I'd bring it to the attention of any D1 owners out there. Eric Hyman wrote Bibble to explore the 16-bit .NEF RAW image format from the Nikon D1 (and to save money on having to buy Nikon's Capture software), he's progressed it to an amazing level, it'll now browse and import .NEF files straight into Photoshop, it'll also do conversions, magenta fix, batch conversions and extract EXIF exposure information. (It's even claimed to give better colour reproduction than Nikon Capture!)
