What is a NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) file?

Nikon Electronic Format (NEF) is a proprietary file format for Nikon cameras. It is a RAW file format, which means that it includes all of the information about the image captured by the camera’s sensor, such as data about the camera used to take the photo and the settings that were in place when it was taken. NEF files are not compressed and are often referred to as digital negatives.  

How to open a NEF file?

A NEF file must be transferred from a Nikon camera to a computer for viewing and editing. Since NEF is proprietary to Nikon, the best program to use for opening and editing a NEF is Nikon’s Capture NX2 or a post-processing software like Adobe Lightroom.


Converting a NEF file to a non-proprietary format is as simple as opening it in an image-viewing application and saving it as a TIFF, JPG, PNG, GIF, PSD, or any other popular format. If you do not have access to programs that can open NEF files, we recommend converting them via our NEF to JPG tool. However, NEF files are meant to be post-processed first before converting to JPG.
