[filmscanners] Re: editing NEF vs TIFF scans


As I understand it, the NikonScan NEF file behaves like the NikonCapture NEF
files. If you make a curves adjustment before scanning and output to a tiff,
the tif file has the curves adjustment in it and you can't go back to the
original data before the curves adjustment. However, with the NEF output,
the parameters of the curves adjustment you make are saved alongside the
original data, so you can open the adjusted file and go back to the original
scanned output from the CCD, and make a different set of adjustments. In
fact you can open it in NikonCapture I believe.

Subject: [filmscanners] editing NEF vs TIFF scans

I wonder if someone could clear up once and for all whether the Nikon
NEF file form,at does anything that the TIFF one does not, when scanning
on a 4000ED in 16bit?  I like using NikonScan for doing curves
adjustments and this seems to work just as well on either file type. Is
there ANY reason why I might want to start with the NEF format, then
convert, or can everything be done on the TIFFs straight from the saved
Thanks.  (Nikon was no help at all with this.)
