Camera Raw and Camera Settings

May 4, 2005
I'm just a little confused about what LR3 and Camera Raw can and cannot read from the NEF file.
As an example, can CR read sharping settings that are set in the camera?

And if Nikon wanted to they could effectively prevent Adobe, or any software other than their own, from opening Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) files, which is the name for the RAW data files produced by their cameras.

That is one of the reasons Adobe developed the .DNG raw file format. It allows one to save Nikon .NEF or Canon .CRW files in a format that will remain accessible regardless of what Nikon or Canon do in the future. And you can still save the original RAW file as part of the .DNG if you desire. The .DNG format also has other advantages you may want to consider.
