Hi,

I'm not new in photography but I admit one cannot know everything...
My usual workflow has always been shooting in raw (NEF), opening it with ACR for the fundamental corrections (exposure, light and dark zones adjustments,...) before opening the file in Photoshop CS5e for the fine tuning of my pics, levels, contrasts, some local corrections, apply or not some Nik Software filters, etc... before saving the results into a TIFF file.

Now I'm using the D800E and of course, the ACR module of Photoshop CS5e cannot open the new NEF files of this Nikon body...!

I am not ready to buy again any other new software version, that's why I had like to know what is missing in a TIFF file created from the original NEF file through ViewNX2 "convert".
If the TIFF file contents all elements of the NEF I can go on opening in ACR, make my correction and then switch to Photoshop cs5e as usual for the fine tuning.

Thanks for your reply, I shall have learned something more today
