Default FW Update 1.7(CP5K) and RAW images

Hi


I finally updated to Firmware 1.7. I notice very little difference(if any) between RAW and
FINE images, is this normal? Also why does the RAW file open as TIFF in Photoshop 7? I have posted this elsewhere but did not get answer.
Thanks.

Louise,

I have photoshop 6 and the RAW files from the CP5K open as NEF files. However, I'm using the PC platform so that may be different than using a MAC. The image quality on screen shouldn't be very different between Fine, HI (TIFF), or the Raw (NEF) images. The advantage of the NEF image is that you can set the exposure compensation values and the W/B options after the fact. You also have twice as much information (16 bits) to make adjustments with compared to the other image formats right out of the camera. I generally try different W/B settings and exposure compensation settings and make any adjustments I can to the RAW images before converting them to TIFF.

Did you purchase the Nikon software needed to process the NEF files?

Thank you for your reply. Am thinking of trying the software as a demo before buying it. Also wonder when the PS plugin will be available. Thanks again.
