Imaging Products. Nikon Capture NX 2 – Control and quality. Nikon Capture NX 2 takes a major step forward over version 1.x, offering a host of improvements.
General improvements include: Workspaces — Capture NX 1.x was awful with more than one monitor; NX 2 not only seems to understand multiple monitors but allows the creation of user workspaces, in addition to four “canned” workspaces that exist by default: Browser, Metadata, Multi-purpose and Edit.
