Hack to get ACR (CS6) / Lightroom to read D7100 raw files
Mar 17, 2013

Download exiftool for Windows or Mac. Run the following command line to hack a D7100 NEF to look like a D5200 NEF:

exiftool.exe -model="NIKON D5200" <nef filename>

For example:

exiftool.exe -model="NIKON D5200" myfile.NEF

By default exiftool will save your original file to a file with the same name but with "_original" appended to it. If you don't want exiftool to save the original, add the -overwrite_original option to it:

exiftool.exe -model="NIKON D5200" -overwrite_original myfile.NEF

Note that exiftool supports filename wildcards, so for example if you want to convert all the NEFs in a given directory:

exiftool.exe -model="NIKON D5200" -overwrite_original *.NEF

Special thanks to "theSuede" for the idea about hacking a D7100 NEF to look like a D5200 NEF.
