If you are using a professional Nikon digital camera, then you may have discovered how useful the RAW file format is in the digital darkroom. Although Photoshop and other profesional tools can use this format, it isn’t very browsable… you end up opening several files just to find the one you want to edit.
Nikon has released their Nikon codec for Vista, which allows you to view and manipulate RAW files as easily as any .JPG or other common image format. Once you go RAW (especially with this handy codec) you will never go back.
With this plugin from Nikon, you can get all the imaging features that Vista has to offer with the strength of the RAW format.
