    Default Beggars Belief!

    I'm just waiting for files to process and was perusing the other side, when I came across something that I find beggars belief; however, in a way, it seems to define what often goes for discourse in forums nowadays. Notwithstanding, it makes me wonder what on earth is going through (or not) the mind of the poster and does the same logic pervade their everyday life (I do hope that they aren't in charge of dangerous machinery).

    This was the question posed:

    Does anyone use Capture One Pro for processing Nikon NEF files. What is the general consensus? Is it better than NC or NX ? Thanks for all advice.
    This was the first response to that question (the bold is my emphasis):

    Although I have capture One on my computer I have never used it with Nikon RAW files. I believe that it works best with Canon raw files and phase One backs and probably other backs as well. This is just one reason why you often find commercial photographers using the Canon 1Ds MkII alongside digital backs (owned or hired) as it offers a seamless workflow regardless of which system they use for any given shoot.

    Most Nikon shooters I know are using capture software be that NX or 4. A few are using the ARC that is integrated into photoshop CS.

    These are my observations and not based on any scientific tests, but I'm sure someone who has actually worked extensively with all the converters will respond.
    Well why not bleeding well try out something that you already have on your computer and do more than make useless statements that provide no assistance whatsoever to the person asking for advice?

    Is simple logic dead in today’s forums? Someone please shoot me if I ever state something like this while sober.

    Cheers

    Ray

    Well, if you weren't so sober while reading forums it wouldn't bother you as much...

    ...well Ray, this reminds me of something my father used to say quite a lot: "The only problem with common sense is that it isn't really very common."
