Nikon D700 ISO 1600 RAW / NEF image sample file for download

First published on: Monday, 30 March 2009

Thanks to Gabor of who posted a thread on alerting us to the availability of several Nikon D700 test RAW files, which were unfortunately taken down.

I only managed to get one of the files via from him.

Nikon D700 ISO 1600 full-sized image DSC_0799_ISO1600

The ISO1600 photo was taken in good light, and so might not be of much use to those who are curious about the low-light, high ISO capabilities of the D700.

Nevertheless, I think you’ll agree that the amount of noise is extremely low even in the darker areas of the image, and color and the amount of detail is excellent.

The image could be useful for evaluating dynamic range and how the Nikon D700 handles shadow detail in such situation.

To download the 12M JPEG file, click here.

The JPEG was converted from the NEF file using a 60-day trial version of Nikon Capture NX 2 with no change in settings.

The NEF cannot be converted using version 1.3.x of Nikon Capture NX.

You can also perform the convert the D700 RAW file using the latest version of Nikon View NX (ViewNX is at version 1.1.0 as I write this).

ViewNX allows for the copying of the EXIF information for this image:
