p.1 #1 · Nikon V1 RAW thumbnails


Can't get an answer on the Post-Processing Forum, so will give it a try here.

When I transfer the jpeg and RAW files from my V1 to my computer, the jpegs show up as thumbnail photo icons, but the RAW files just show up as NEF icons.

I have upgraded my Camera Raw to 6.6 and am running Mac OS 10.6.8. I am using the supplied ViewNX 2 software to do the transfer.

Any idea why the RAW files do not show as photo thumbnails like the jpeg files do?

Thanks, but that is for OS 10.7 or later, and the V1 is not even listed.

I did however find the following, which does not explain why I am having this problem:

The linked document stated system-wide support for V1 RAW started with OS X 10.7.3. Look for V1 under the list "Supported by OS X Lion v10.7.3".

You're using OS X 10.6.8 - the version without system-wide support for V1 RAW. That MAY explain why V1 RAW icons are not displayed.

No, as I just posted before your post, this Apple statement clearly shows the J1 & V1 RAW being supported by version 10.6.

V1 is listed under Digital Camera RAW 3.9 so iPhoto and Aperture will be able to read V1 RAW file under 10.6.8.

In the same document V1 is not listed under OS X 10.6.8 or earlier versions = no system-wide support for V1 until 10.7.3. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4757

Well that is no help, since I do not use either iPhoto or Aperture, nor do I have any intention of changing my OS to 10.7.

It is also lame of Nikon not to have provided this support on the Install CD, since they clearly state in the System Requirements for the V1:

Mac OS X version 10.5.8 or 10.6.7
