Nikon RAW Codec 64-bit
Nov 5, 2011

Looks like we finally got a 64-bit version of Nikon RAW Codec, or did I misread this?

"Supports 64-bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7": http://nikonimglib.com/nefcodec/

Thanks for the link Dez. I recently re-install my OS. I'm running Win 7 64-bit and the previous coded I installed didn't quite work for me. I'll give this one a try now.

I installed it but I had another 64-bit codec running already (fastpicture), and it worked oké.

Microsoft issued an image codec pack that included .NEF (64bit) back in july ,that works perfectly.

Sorry, but I must disagree. The Microsoft version does not show the edited version of the nef file. There are several situations in which I have to know whether a file has been edited, and it is aggravating to have to open the file to find out. Other than that, I've had no problems with the Microsoft version, even though I'm downloading the Nikon version as we "speak."

The Microsoft version doesn't include the in-camera settings as rotation or picture control.

So you just see the basic image but when you made a portrait orientated one it's lying down or when for instance you set the camera to black and white you still see a colored image. So the Microsoft implementation ignores the camera settings just as ACR does. The new Nikon codec shows the actual camera settings in the thumbnail.

ok installed the Codec, seems fine, BUT the windows 7 64Bit search function still doesnt pick up the meta-data I entered for the RAW- pics (whereas it picks up the meta data for jpegs)

Can anybody help please ?

If you already had the Microsoft codec installed do you have to do anything other than install the Nikon Codec for it to work properly?

If the Microsoft already made thumbnails they will not be recreated by the Nikon codec until you delete them as indicated on the download page.

I don't see any values either, I meant the camera settings (like B&W picture control) are visible in the thumbnail image.

So when you take a portrait orientated photo with the camera's B&W picture control active the Nikon codec generated thumbnail shows a portrait orientated B&W image while the Microsoft codec generated thumbnail shows a landscape orientated color image for the same photo.
