ufraw with Nikon D40

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Fredrik Sandstrom, Jul 3, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    Is anyone using ufraw ( http://ufraw.sourceforge.net/ ) successfully
    with a Nikon D40? I posted about this on their forum:
    http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1758871&forum_id=434060

    but wasn't able to solve the problem, which is this: I can't get the
    colors to look anything like the jpegs the camera produces. I suspect
    this is because I don't have the correct input profile, but where can
    I find one? On the ufraw site you can download profiles for the D50,
    D70, D80, etc, but not D40, and none of them give very good results.
    When I installed the Nikon software I got a profile named
    NKD1_NEF.icm, apparently for the D1. It is semi-usable, but clearly
    not 100% correct. So, any ideas?

    Can you post an NEF file and also the camera generated
    JPEG file to a website, or perhaps a binary newsgroup?

    I'd be happy to try matching UFRaw output with the
    camera's JPEG file.
