I'm doing a lot of batch scanning. I have been saving .tif files but noticed the option of creating NEF files. Are the NEF files the same as those created by Nikon digital cameras? The big question is this. If I am saving to NEF files, will the Digital Ice feature still work? I would assume that it does not since a raw file is just a collection of sensor data. Do you know if this is true?

NEF files from Nikon Scan are not the same as NEF files from Nikon Digital Cameras, you can only open them with Nikon Scan. This allows you to complete image processing at a later date using Nikon Scan, but if you plan to use Photoshop then they are of no value.
