If you had worked with images, you would be aware that there are a plethora of image file formats. Some of them are popular while many others are less known. The Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) is a model file type used by Nikon devices to save Raw images. However, most image editing application cannot open these types of file. This application allows the computer user to quickly and easily edit these types of files on a Windows computer.
The unique feature of this file is that it has been around since 1999 when the first version of Nikon Camera that supports the file was invented. Since then, the Nikon family of cameras has been improved extensively with various innovations, but all of the cameras still use the NEF Codec. This consistency is impressive. To open this type of file, the user can either download the NEF Codec or use the Nikon proprietary ViewNX application.
Many versions of Nikon Cameras use this Codec, it is the company’s bespoke standard for processing image files. If you want to view these types of files, the Codec will help you achieve your objectives.
Nikon NEF Codec is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in graphic plugins category and is available to all software users as a free download.
