Hello, I'm trying to import NEF RAW format files from my Nikon D7200 camera into Lightroom 4.4. I can neither preview nor import the files.
I have tried giving Lightroom administrative privileges and it hasn't helped. I copied the files directly from the SD card to my hard drive using Windows Explorer, no utility was used.
Are there any other options for me to get these files into Lightroom for editing? I'd prefer not to lose the raw data as I would like to adjust exposure.
You need Lightroom 6 for the D7200. As an alternative, you can download the latest DNG converter and use it to create DNG copies that you can use in your Lightroom. There will be no native support for D7200 NEF files in Lightroom 4.4.
Support for the Nikon D7200 was introduced with LR 6 / CC 2015 and ACR 9.0.
You will need to upgrade to LR Version 6/ 2015CC or alternatively
b. Use the free DNG Converter the Latest Version is 9.3 to convert the new raw files from your camera to dig format. Then you can import the dog files into LR 4.4.
