Using D300 NEF files (12 bit acquisition) I have performed a NEF to JPG conversion of the same files in NX2 and View NX. In both programs I selected the maximum resolution: NX2: In default meta window selected files and then
In View NX: File Convert Files (not asked about quality) Selected the maximum
In Capture NX2: File Save As Then select JPG format an 100%
The files converted in View NX are of the order of 3500 - 4500 KB The files converted in Capture NX2 are of the order of 8700 KB
What is the reason for the difference in file size?
