new d810 confusion - downloading & editing images
I'd taken a few photos with my brand-new d810, uploaded them to my Mac 10.11, imported them to LR 6, and everything was fine. I didn't have to do any extra conversion, computer read the SD card, LR read the NEF files.
That was once. Hasn't happened again despite several attempts at uploading.
Now I get a message about unsupported file format. I've download the Nikon's ViewNX-i which does allow the NEF files to be converted to TIFF. But is this really necessary? Is there a preset or plug-in (or something) for LR so I don't have to take the extra step to convert them? Or some other LR setting? My Olympus and Fuji cameras' files don't have to be converted. . .
If I have to do the extra step, it's not a big deal but not having to would be better.
