Trying to figure out which one to buy for my newly ordered Canon 10D.
1) Adobe RC 2.0
3) Capture One
Or any other converter that I have not heard of yet.
3)Nixvue's Digital Album
I just spent half day doing research on these and so far I am settling for #2 options on both, I would like to hear from anyone who has an experience with using them. Much appreciated.

IMHO Cpature One is probably the absolute best quality - but requires a good bit of work to get optimum results. Breezebrowser is not quite as good at converting, but much more versatile and fast.
Currently I'm using the built in RAW convertor for Photoshop CS- it is very close to Capture One in absolute quality, but tends to get a better initial result without having to make adjustments. I love having the conversion process integrated with the file browser and processing software - has improved my work flow considerably. (Though I do sometimes still use C1 on challenging pics and Breezebrowser for certain batch processes).
If you have any version of PS, the upgrade to CS should not cost much more than Capture One, and the program has some useful enhancements on the processing side.
