I am considering buy a NikonD5500 but one of the reviews says that the RAW NEF files are not compatible with lightroom. is this correct?
[Asking in the correct forum helps... Moved from generic Cloud/Setup forum to specific Program forum... Mod]
Nikon D5500 RAW NEF photos are indeed compatible with the current version of Lightroom (Lightroom 6 or Lightroom CC 2015)
Could you please let me know the version of Lightroom that you are working on ?
Also please check the following link for the list of Supported Cameras with Lightroom : Cameras supported by Adobe Camera Raw
