Re: Do you convert NEF to DNG?

Furthermore, if you contribute to some photography contests, like famous wildlife photography of the year, you must be able to provide original RAW file just as captured by camera.

Their rules clearly say that DNG files are only permitted if DNG is the native RAW format of the camera. And such a rule is quite common when contributing to high-profile contests.

I never delete my NEFs and I think conversion to DNG is pointless as any convertsion can never give you any value. It can only take something out.
