NX500: Anyone have a workaround for Capture One?

Hello!  So, I use Capture One for my photo editing software.  It does a great job with NX1 raw images, however it does not support NX500 raw sadly.  I believe there may be a workaround out there somewhere, does anyone use Capture One for their NX500 images?  I do have RawTherapee, which is nice but I definitely prefer the user experience with Capture One.  Thanks!

No direct help, I'm afraid, but if your chosen software can import anything other than a RAW format, maybe you could use the Samsung RAW Converter to handle your files initially, then export to TIFF for further editing.

Would you happen to know where you can download the RAW converter?  I'm following the steps to download iLauncher through the NX500 but the download fails.

Here you go https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/EV-NX1000BABTR/… genuine Samsung download

Make sure you get the correct version, there's separate Mac and Windows versions.

Thanks!  Sadly it looks as if the NX500 files are not supported by that version of the converter.  haha

I'm going to try Raw Therapee batch save to Tiff using the queue feature to see if I like the output to Capture One.

I suggest contacting Capture One.
Something else you could try is using exiftool on an NX500 raw to change the camera model to NX1.

This version of the converter should work with NX500.

C1 doesn't support my NX3000 RAW files either.

I first convert them to .DNG using the free Adobe DNG converter.

Then open the .DNG files in C1. No problem. (I can't say if any subtle nuances get lost).

Re: NX500: Anyone have a workaround for Capture One?

Thanks for the replies so far!  The NX Converter works, but the program doesn't play too well with Windows 10.  The Adobe converter is the best so far, but it does something to the colors that I'm not thrilled about.  It will work though!

This is excactly what I'm doing with my NX500-RAW Files - not for C1 but for lightroom 5.7.1. It works perfectly.
