    Default what software u guys used to open ur camera RAW files?

    i use photoshop primarily..but i realised that when i open my camera's RAW files under photoshop and other different applications like picasa2, the contrast and brightness look different

    is it because of the calibration of monitor or colour profile used by the software?

    Nikon Capture.
    To get view only, I used previewExtractor, faster than Nikon Capture.

    It could be both, but the predominant cause is likely in the way different programs process raw files. Raw data is a fairly accurate and objective representation of the image. Conversion software may process (i.e. distort) this data in undocumented ways to achieve a "pleasing" image. Most conversion software allows to adjust white balance, contrast, brightness, curves, acuity, noise filtering, etc, or has several preset "styles" to choose from - you even can get greatly different results from the same raw filen using the same program.
