"NX2 doesn't recognize a dust off reference picture"


Rambouillet, FR
          

I got back from a safari, saw what appears to be mostly oil spots on the sensor (D7000) and took a dust off reference photo successfully (checkerboard grid). It shows on the file list when viewed on the Finder on my iMac. But, when I open a NEF file in CNX2 and go to the dust off reference image control the little window says "none" and when I hit the "change" button my (which opens the file list in a new window where the NDF file is perfectly visible) I get a message saying there is no reference image.

Anybody else have this problem or suggestions on how to resolve it?

Hi William,

Not sure if the D7000 has the self cleaning facility.

If it has and it is set to clean when turning off then I understand this cleaning action could change the position or remove any dust included when the reference picture was taken. I believe the software recognises this and gives a "none" report.

A solution would be to temporarily turn off the auto clean facility in the camera.

I've found it to be hit or miss - mostly miss - when taking a dust reference photo retroactively (my old D70s w/out automatic cleaning. The software does seem to be able to tell that the spots are not in the same place.

So far my problem is that the software doesn't even recognize that a dust-off photo exists, although it shows on my camera screen and on the file list in my computer.

I had the same problem. I finally figured out that you have to take the reference photo at the same time you take the photos you plan to use it with. I think it has something to do with the time stamp on the files. Try taking a dust off photo and then another photo at the same time. You should then be able to apply the dust off photo to the photo you took at the same time. You can then save the adjustment in NX2 and apply it to any other photos.
