"View NX, other raw formats?"


US
          

I am traveling with my little Dell Mini and have been frustrated with PSE8 and Picasa for what I want to do - download raw images; look through them and trash the obvious losers; do a little editing and conversion of a few to put up on flickr, FB, email; move them to other storage/backup devices; bring them home and do the full editing work on my usual computer with my usual software (which will be LR4 when I get home and install the upgrade).

I used View NX when I first got my Nikon for a short period of time (over 2 years ago) and I recall that ViewNX can do these tasks, right?

My main question is, I shoot raw on my Nikon but also use a Panasonic LX5 and my husband has a little Canon P&S (jpgs). Can I access and convert my RW2 files from the LX5 on ViewNX?

Thanks.

(I've looked around on this forum a bunch but my first time posting.)

NX2 only works with Nikon-camera-created .NEFs.

Lightroom or a newer version of Photoshop Elements would suit you better given the variety of cameras you have. You'd have a common software solution for RAW, and more than suitable editing tools for JPEGS/TIFFS and even short movie clips.

I have LR on my "real" computer. This is just a fix for while traveling. Does your reply say that I cannot use ViewNX for my LX5?
Thanks

Oops. Didn't see the other reply...

I guess I'll just muddle through with the PSE on the mini. It's a short trip.

You could shoot RAW + JPEG for now and see the JPEG dumps on the Dell Mini - they're effectively the RAW file with the in-camera settings applied....

Except for doing any editing other than cropping, Photo Mechanic might do the trick for you. It is a very fast, lightweight (computer resource wise) browser that reads almost all camera file formats. You can quickly tag, mark, rate and cull your images. It will convert raw to jpg and you can upload to various photo hosting sites. If you want to edit in PSE, you can launch straight from PM.

I've been using it for years now and don't know what I'd do without it. You can download a trial at http://www.camerabits.com

Oooooooooo! Mick! I lust over Photo Mechanic. Free trial might just fit the bill. Of course, I could find the "requirement" to own it! Great idea!
