Recovery lost raw NEF image file from Nikon D-SLR cameras
Introduction of NEF(Nikon Electronic Format)
Exclusive to Nikon cameras, the NEF is Nikon’s Raw file format. The raw image files contain all the image information captured by the camera’s sensor, along with the image’s metadata(the camera’s identification and its settings, the lens used and other information). The NEF is written to the memory card in either an compressed or “lossless” compressed formats.
Benefits of NEF file
The primary benefit of writing images to the memory card in NEF format rather than TIFF or JPEG is that no in-camera processing for white balance, hue, tone and sharpening are applied to the NEF file. Another benefit of the NEF file is that it retains 12-bit or 14-bit data, resulting in a image with a far greater tonal rather than an eight-bit JPEG or TIFF file.
