Why so many NEFs?
Dec 17, 2012

I'm sure there's a good technical reason for it but why does each new camera have its own NEF version leading to possible post processing problems with incompatible software needing constant ( and paid for) updates.

Is there any chance Nikons will ever adopt adobe dng as an in-camera option to obviate these problems? If not why not?
