Subject: Re: Camera Raw support for Nikon D200?
markey sparkey, you say "I have not seen any written information warning
you that if you buy this camera you might not be able to open your raw
files in what is the most widely used photo editing software".
Nikon were the ones in control of the launch and its accompanying published
material. But Nikon didn't care about your problems.
If Nikon cared about their customers needs more than their sales of Nikon Capture software, they would not encrypt their white balance and possibly other shooting parameters and perhaps even they would embrace DNG instead of NEF. As you may recall, when they first began encrypting the WB with the D2X, they implied that Photoshop was unnecessary, except perhaps to remove an unwanted light pole from the image!
Nikon's PR is especially bad. At a time when widespread failures were being noted with the D70 electronics (blinking green light of death) and light meter failures with the D2H, Nikon tech support had their heads in the sand and refused to acknowledge any problem. Finally, they had recalls on both cameras.
As for Adobe, there may still be some bad blood between Adobe and Nikon. If they do not embrace DNG, to hell with them! In the mean time, the customer suffers.
