#legonoah has a day of violence with awesome model @scarlettodell under the watchful eye of @nathanciprick
Apparently we are about to get a huge storm. I believe it. #californiastorm #shootcancelled (at Mission Beach)
#legonoah and the sea creature
Since the Nikon DF is so spankin’ new Capture One Pro can’t see the files, nor can OS X show you a preview. Basically the only way to see them is to install Nikon’s Viewer software which messes up my workflow. Turns out it’s a simple edit of the EXIF data that tricks the computer into thinking I shot it with my Nikon D4.
Now for the nerdout:
Download and install EXIFtool:
Then MAKE A COPY OF ALL THE DF RAW FILES YOU PLAN TO RUN THIS PROCESS ON. If you don’t, and it messes up your raw files forever, and you don’t have a backup, you’re a dumb dumb.
Open Terminal in OS X (I use the search in finder to access it).
In the Terminal window put this text:
exiftool -model=”NIKON D4” -overwrite_original *.NEF
Make sure there is a space after the *.NEF
Then drag the folder containing the NEF files into the Terminal window. This will show up as text showing the path in the Terminal window.
Hit ENTER and wait for it to process. It will come up with an alert “Error: File not found - *.NEF” But if you look at the folder containing you NEF files you’ll notice they are suddenly getting previews, so let it run until you see a message like this:
1 directories scanned
899 image files updated
1 files weren’t updated due to errors
Then BOOM! You can see your files in Capture One, just like they were shot on your D4.
Hope that saves a few folks some time who purchased a lovely new Nikon DF.
