"Just when I thought I was "getting" It"


pinellas park, US
          

Took a bunch of pictures on vacation (Manhattan), and used the 5100 extensively for the first time. I went jpeg fine but thought I would try the RAW + jpeg fine for quite a few. Now that I am home and going through all these I am confused. I thought at this setting I would get two (2) pictures of each shot, which I did get. Naming nomenclature is:
DSC_1111.jpg and the second is DSC_1111 (05).jpg When I pull these pic's up in viewNX2 they bothshow as 6 bit JPG's. No indication of RAW, cannot do the RAW adjustment's, white balance etc.

So I need to be educated, have to admit it. LOL going through the manual told me nothing. I am guessing that the file with the parenthesis DSC_xxxx (xx).jpg would be the Raw, as its numbers (xx)correspond to my shooting.

Your initial thought is correct. When shooting Raw+JPG, you get two files, dsc_xxxx.nef and dsc_xxxx.jpg, for each shot.

The catch comes in when transferring these files from the card to the computer. Different software may do different things.

The "(nn)" is used by the operating system to resolve duplicate file names. In this case, that change in the name would "break" any name matching between the JPG and NEF file. Sorting by date might help matching them back up.

I don't use ViewNX, so I cannot help you with that part.

in the lowest tool bar at the top of ViewNX2, there is an icon that looks like two photos overlapping each other ( next to the "sort w/a pic of a camera" icon This is where you choose to see the Nef/Jpeg as a single image or seperate. Try clicking on this to see your raw file.

Thanks for the replies. I know what I was doing wrong. I hooked up the 5100 straight to the PC and copied its files right to the hard drive. Thats why I had the(xx), and all named .jpg. When I imported them through viewnx it all came in properly. NEF and jpg. So learning the 5100, step 1, learning the program, step 2....lol

Ignoring the software part...

Using a card reader instead of attaching the camera to the computer might be better since:
- a card reader is faster
- a card reader does not drain the camera battery
- the computer easily recognizes the card reader without Nikon drivers.
