Try cd c:\Users\frida\backup to change to the desired directory. If you get "bad command or filename" when you try D700Hack *.nef D3 then make sure D700Hack.exe is in that directory or on some directory in your path. You can see the path by entering path
My tool is a very simple program that has no relationship to ExifTool. I have no need to modify any other Exif data. However, I do need to be able to open NEF files from any model of Nikon DSLR to help Nikonians and to do my sensor research.
I don't have your answer but you may want to post a separate question on this forum posing that question. The setting is only relevant if you shoot JPG or you use Nikon software to process NEF files. The reason I have no answer is that my research is solely on NEF files prior to post processing.
I am shooting in NEF. My concern is that at high sensitivity 6400 or above the quality of picture is highly dependant of the level of noise. When using the noise level control the Nikon software (Expeed?) try to eliminate the noise while degrading the picture quality. All the postprocessing software (DXO, NX2..) are trying to improve that but what is done is done.
The only camera noise setting that has any effect on the raw image data is Long Exposure Noise Reduction (LENR). As far as I know the only software that consults the noise (and other) settings is Nikon software such as NX2. So, if you process with non-Nikon software, such as CS3 or DXO, the setting does not matter at all. But if you process with Nikon software, such as NX2, the setting serves as the default value which you can change in the software as you like.
Of course the setting affects any JPG produced in the camera if you are shooting RAW+JPG or JPG.
I'm sure you know that you should always use the lowest ISO that your lighting will allow in order to get the lowest amount of apparent noise.
Bill P.S. - As far as I know Expeed is the image processing engine inside the camera so that is "firmware" rather than external software.
If I understand well noise control (beside LENR)settings in the D700 have no impact on RAW data. The Expeed internal software is providing processing on this item only for JPG or TIFF images. Therefore at high ISO level (above 6400) the only way to clean the picture without degrading it is to take the optimal post processing software; aS dxo is working on specific camera/lens it should be the best. What is your feeling about that.
I have not used DxO so I cannot comment on whether it is a good choice for noise reduction. Many people use extra software, such as Noise Ninja, to deal with noise. I rarely have the need to shoot at high ISOs so I have little practical experience in noise reduction.
Unfortunately I have to change back to NEF fiels for which I changed the model from D700 to D3 (using you program). Unfortunately I have to do the reverse operation, changing D3 to D700. Which porgram Can I use ?
