Subject: Re: Camera Raw support for Nikon D200?


We could go on forever, but marketing and politics DO play a role. Nikon obviously has a reason to do things the way they do and it may be as simple as trying to sell their software.

I'm libertarian enough to say that is their right and Adobe (unless they make digital cameras better than Nikon) is the one that has to catch up with whatever changes Nikon made. The marketplace will speak. Either Nikon will go out of business because folk can't use PS with the D200 or Nikon will change OR (most likely scenario) Adobe will put out a RAW update for the D200 (or not sell copies to D200 users). Nikon has calculated that this course of action is best for them and that is their right, of course.

I am not a software engineer, so I don't know if there is something about the change that they consider positive from an engineering point of view. I do know that other companies seem to have their own proprietary RAW format, so it ain't just Nikon alone. Perhaps one day there will be a universal format for digital negatives.

But we shall agree to disagree.
