Sometimes, the online help files provided with computer software are totally inadequate as a learning material. That’s why there are usually books available with much better organization and examples to illustrate the real world applications of the software.

For Nikon Capture NX, there are only two books available. One is The Photographer’s Guide to Nikon Capture NX by Jason Odell, another one is Real World Nikon Capture NX by Ben Long. Jason’s book appears to be available as ebook only, that is probably why he was quick to publish an updated version of his book for the recently released Nikon Capture NX2. I have just found the updated version of Ben’s book on Amazon. Published by Peachpit Press, the new book, titled Real World Nikon Capture NX 2 (Real World) will be published on October 13, 2008.
