NEF (RAW) Images

White balance bracketing (0 103) and date imprint (0 160) are not available at image 
quality settings of NEF (RAW) or NEF (RAW)+JPEG.
NEF (RAW) images can be viewed on the camera or using software such as Capture NX 2 
(available separately; 0 202) or ViewNX (available on the supplied Software Suite CD). JPEG 
copies of NEF (RAW) images can be created using the NEF (RAW) processing option in the 
retouch menu (0 184).
When photographs taken at NEF (RAW) + JPEG fineNEF (RAW) + JPEG normal, or NEF 
(RAW) + JPEG basic
 are viewed on the camera, only the JPEG image will be displayed. When 
photographs taken at these settings are deleted, both NEF and JPEG images will be deleted. 
File Names 
Photographs are stored as image files with names of the form “,” where nnnn 
is a four-digit number between 0001 and 9999 assigned automatically in ascending order by 
the camera, and xxx is one of the following three letter extensions: “NEF” for NEF images, 
“JPG” for JPEG images, or “AVI” for movies. The NEF and JPEG files recorded at a setting of 
“NEF+JPEG” have the same file names but different extensions. Small copies created with 
the small picture option in the retouch menu have file names beginning with “SSC_” and 
ending with the extension “.JPG” (e.g., “SSC_0001.JPG”). Stop motion movies have file names 
beginning with “ASC_” (e.g., “ASC_0001.AVI”); images recorded with the other options in the 
retouch menu have file names beginning with “CSC” (e.g., “CSC_0001. JPG”). Images 
recorded with the Color space option in the shooting menu set to Adobe RGB (0 150) have 
names that begin with an underscore (e.g., “_DSC0001.JPG”).
The Shooting Menu
Image quality can also be adjusted using the Image quality option 
in the shooting menu (0 148).
The Fn Button
Image quality and size can also be adjusted by pressing the Fn (
