Nikon D300s RAW Problems

I am having problems getting the NEF RAW files to display on my Mac in either the main viewer or in iPhoto.

They also will not open in Adobe PS CS3.

The only way I have managed to view them is using Light Room 2.

Anyone know how to get them to work with iPhoto & CS3?

Download the latest Adobe camera raw converter, I know that my version read my D200 but it wouldnt when i went to a D300 until i downloaded the latest version, However between a D300 and a D300s I wouldnt have thought it was going to be a problem.

The latest Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) which will work with CS3 is 4.6 and this doesn't support the D300s raw file format. ACR 5.5 is not compatible with CS3 and CS3 will issue an error message if you try to use it.

Unfortunately Apple is VERY slow at supporting new cameras, and it may be a while yet before you can use iPhoto.

I am unfortunately in the same position (D300s, Mac, CS3)

If you have LR2 then you can use the ACR 5.5 from there and then edit directly in PS3. So long as you use edit in CS3 from Lightroom it will let you do this.

I had to upgrade to CS4 to get them to work.

Re: Nikon D300s RAW Problems

You could use the Adobe DNG converter and then read the DNG file into iPhoto, CS3, Aperture, etc.

Yes that is exactly what I've done when I couldn't see my raw files in CS3 with my new D700. And that works fine. Strange now is though that CS3 recognises the NEF files without converting

... Good fix though.....
Its down to the Codec.... enCOde DECode device that allows you to view digital media files....
If you search [Codec] in google there are literally hundreds of the bloomin things, from DivX and XviD to all the rest....

What you have found there may be important.... the Codec for the digital files of NEF raw are left "Open" for other applications to use, so your CS3, which happens to also be Adobe, has just borrowed it....

This could be quite a good thing....

There was a thread on here somewhere, about the problems of CS3 not recognising the NEF files recently in Windwoes.... I am thinking you have fond the required fix?.....
