Subject: ACR/Bridge won't open "camera raw image" NEFs but will open "camera raw" NEFs - what's the diff?



Folks,

Anyone know the difference between how BridgeCS2/CameraRaw recognizes and tags NEF files ?

Situation: some NEFs show as file type 'camera raw' and are openable in ACR. Others in the same series show as type 'camera raw image', and Capture will open them in some cases but not all, but Bridge seems not to think they're raw (open in camera raw is greyed out), and Photoshop CS2 will not recognize/open them when dragged to the dock, and leaves the 'camera raw image' files greyed out in any Open dialog box.

These are not new files, and some may have been mangled (see sample below) during the restore from a backup.

But the 'problem' occurs with files that do not have the visibile corruption you see in the samples attached.

Thoughts? comments?

Is there such a beast as a 'raw file repair' utility?

Here is the clip from bridge, raw on left, raw 'image' on right :


The metadata shows the difference. For the 'raw' file, we see more fields than the 'raw image' file, specifically application (firmware version), dimensions, resolution, and bit depth.

Metadata for 'raw'

and the metadata for the type that sometimes-opens-in-Capture 'raw image':

thanks
