    Question Do you convert your NEF files to DNG?

    Poll.

    Also it would help if you stated your reasoning for why or why not.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital...e_(file_format)

    The following digital cameras support DNG, as of July 2007:
    -Hasselblad supports DNG, as an output format via software on their V96C digital back for the 503CW camera body and in the Hasselblad H-2D one; also the CF and CFH.
    -Leica's Digital Modul R for the Leica R8 or Leica R9, as well as the Leica M8 and the Leica Digilux 3 natively support the DNG format.
    -MegaVision E Series Monochrome back.
    -NuCoreTech PEK reference platform.
    -Pentax supports DNG in their K10D DSLR camera.
    -Ricoh supports DNG in the Ricoh Digital GR, considered a professional compact, and the Ricoh Caplio GX.
    -Samsung supports DNG in their Samsung Pro815 "prosumer" camera and Samsung GX-10 DSLR camera.
    -Sea&Sea DX‐1G underwater camera.
    -Seitz Roundshot D3 digital back, used in cameras such as the 617.
    -Silicon Imaging Silicon Imaging Digital Cinema SI-1920HDVR.

    Besides Adobe Photoshop, several other software programs provide read and sometimes write support for DNG files including: FuturixImager, The GIMP, ImageMagick, ACDSee Photo Manager, ExifTool, Aperture.

    NO. I've got an iMac with NX & Aperture 2 so I don't need to.

    Digital Negative. Adobe's "standardized" Raw format. It gives you the option when you load them into Bridge.

    Rooz, it's the ole Windows vs Linux story. Adobe is attempting to standardize raw. There are some good reasons for doing so. The flexibility it gives you with meta data is pretty neat. I haven't commited to DNG but most likely will do so in the near future.
