Re: Do you convert NEF to DNG?

Meta data is definitely lost with the translation to DNG which is important with the D800 and a number of its exposure features.

It is really quite silly to take the time to do the conversion to save space with a 1TB hard drive selling for under $100. DNG is also "open" in the sense that Adobe has published the spec but it is by no means a universal file format.

Worry more about the availability of hard drives as standards change. IDE are no very difficult to find and the same will happen with SATA in 10 years time. And even if the enclosure has a Ethernet or USB port the drive itself will be IDE/eSATA/whatever.
