a faster DNG2NEF

Last 4th of April, Nikon released their NEF SDK with support for
64bits, after their NX2 upgrade. Based on these libraries, and also
doing some further refinements, I am releasing a new and faster
DNG2NEF, version 2.64, for both Windows 7 64bit and Mac OSX Lion 10.7.

This version supports firmware 1.162, 1.174 and 1.176 of the M9, and
both versions 1.0 and 2.0 of the X1. It is a 64bit executable, and
twice as fast as the previous 32bit version.

There are a few parameters that you can modify when processing the
files. These are the "Conversion settings":
  • Skip existing, so no NEF with the same filename is rewritten if found at the target directory.
  • Strict Compat., controls the compatibility check of the camera firmware version. In case of a camera firmware update, DNG2NEF may still work, so leave this to "NO", and see what happens.
  • Color space, to set the desired color space for the NEF.
  • JPG divider, can divide the JPG preview by this factor, leading to slightly smaller files.
  • JPG quality, to determine the compression quality.
