"CF NEFs @ 14 bit CNX files saves @ 12 bit, what VER of Transfer to use for D800?" Mon 18-Jun-12 09:21 PM by Robman3
D800 files, which version of Transfer is supposed to work, I've been using the tool bar in CNX to apply the process.
I was gearing up for the drive down to El Segundo but now will save the trip.
Raw files from the D800 being set in camera to NEF 14 bit uncompressed even with a factory default reset, are showing up after transfer/backup as 12 bit and do not resolve past native fit to screen ratio, just under 100%.
So I loaded from CF as the drive, CNX large files open fine show at 14 bit, but the saved files on both HD's , as indicated are somehow being restated upon load in.
Could this be related to the version of Transfer? Also, Nikon's download server is down at the moment, should I load in the most recent NEF file codec for Windows?

I don't have a D800 but from what I know about Nikon Transfer 2 in view NX2, it just copies exactly what is on your CF card and does not change the bit depth. Use the latest version of VNX2 which is 2.3.1 and use the Transfer program within VNX2 not the old stand alone version. Check your camera setting to make sure you have not set the camera to save 12 bit images. Other than that you will need to wait until someone with a D800 posts an answer.

Rob glad to be of help. Now that you installed ViewNX2 from the box make sure it is the latest version as often what you get in the box is not. Go to Nikons Web site and check for the latest one there as sometimes checking for updates does not seem to work.
