    So, I’m playing around again with my IR converted D50 (its turn came back up), and I’m noticing that when I shoot RAW and load with Adobe Camera RAW, the white balance gets truncated to 2000K (where ACR has it’s lower bound), not where I have it manually set in camera (much lower, on the order of 100-500K) from manual WB on brightly lit grass through whichever IR filter I happen to be using. Shooting in jpg is fine, but RAW becomes a nasty yellow and not at all like it should.

    So the question is, does anyone know of a program that I can use to open NEF files and export to tif that will accept the extended WB settings?

    Not sure how much conversion of your D50 you’re talking about, but have you tried the Nikon ViewNX? It’s what I use to make small adjustments before turning into .tiff files.

    Check UFRaw, I used it before I, uh, acquired CS2 and Lightroom.

    ^seconds. If you want more control, lay hands on DCRAW (UFRAW is a front-end for it). My first step at the PC is drop my card in and type “ufraw-batch –out-type=tif –out-depth=16 *.CR2” and walk away til the developing is done. DCRAW allows just about any option you can think of for converting your RAW files to conventional formats when you need to adjust other factors. Taking the time to write a few scripts for DCRAW is something I really need to find time to play with more.

    *edit: UFRAW allows you to pass a lot of command line options to DCRAW as well. If you’re not a syntaxophobe, it’s the fastest way to get an 8-gig card of RAWs developed. You can set temp, levels, sharpness, etc… you can even debayer if you have a need to (could be useful shooting IR).

    Canon DPP? 😀

    I like the results I get with Irfanview with the plug-ins. It’s quick and easy. It does CR2, but I’m not sure about other camera raw formats.
