Harvey Utility Fixes Corrupted NEFs Tweet This   Forward This

18 January 2013

Phil Harvey, author of ExifTool, has updated his Perl utility to fix Nikon's Raw NEF files that can no longer be opened.

According to Harvey:

Downloading NEF images from newer Nikon cameras with Nikon Transfer 1 or older versions of ViewNX 2 (and probably Capture NX 2) may result in corrupted NEF images that can no longer be opened.

The utility repairs files from the D4, D600, D800, D800E and D3200, although "only FX-format NEF images are supported for the D4 and D600, and FX and DX images for the D800." The D3200 was added with Tuesday's update.

Versions and instructions are available for Mac/Linux and Windows operating systems.
