Hi All,

I recently updated my camera from D90 to D600.  I shoot in RAW make some changes in NX2 and convert to TIFF for some final editing in Photoshop. I didn't change this process during the camera upgrade but I noticed the file sizes of the D600 and D90 in RAW were 20mb for D600 to 10mb for D90 which makes sense.  Now when I convert it to 16 bit TIFF in NX2 the file size is 5mb for the D600 and 70mb for D90.  Am I missing something or should the D600 converted TIFF files be larger than the DX format.

Any insight would be appreciated.


Hi Dan - I am following the same process and my 16 bit TIFFs come out at around 140MB.  Check all your settings in the conversion pop up box!
