Hello,
I've been lurking on this forum for a while because I am thinking about buying my first DSLR and my choice is D80. However, I am not sure what is the story with Nikon's NEF camera raw format. I hear that D80 does not come with a converter from NEF to other formats and one needs to buy the software extra. Can anyone here tell me what is the story with NEF?

Hello csnaus, and welcome to the Camera Labs forum!
NEF is recognized by the current versions of Photoshop, PhotoMatix, CaptureNX and can be previewed/thumbnailed in the Microsoft file-explorer. And I'm sure there is more SW out there that recognizes this format.

NEF is basically a Camera Raw format If you have a computer that's not ancient, or generally any layer-based image editing software (i.e. Photoshop), then there's no need for that extra software.
