PhotoshopNews are reporting that Nikon have encrypted the whilte balance data contained in NEF RAW files written by the new 12 megapixel Nikon D2X and D2Hs digital SLR cameras. This is a problem for all third-party RAW convertors, such as Adobe Capture RAW and Capture One.
“Adobe is still going to support the D2X in the upcoming Camera Raw 3.1 release. However, because of the white balance encryption, Camera Raw will not be able (unless Nikon backs down real soon) to read the “as shot” white balance from the camera, and users will be more likely to have to adjust the while balance manually in the Camera Raw dialog, since Camera Raw’s default white balance will not match the cameras default white balance.”
