Coolpix 5700 NEF support?

Trying to edit NEF files taken with a Nikon Coolpix 5700 (pre-2005) and they appear as B&W/lined/Corrupted in the main preview window (though, in the Open Images ‘film-strip’ bar at the bottom of the app, they look normal.

Opening a NEF from 2005 (taken with a Nikon Coolpix 8800) in the same session, there are no problems with these files.

Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Open a Coolpix 5700 NEF file in Topaz Photo AI v2.0.1 (or, edit it within Lightroom with the Topaz plugin)
  2. The preview/edit image of the file, in Topaz Photo AI v2.0.1 shows a grainy, B&W (some color) vertically striped image. Even after Autopilot runs, the image looks different, but still similarly ‘corrupt’ looking
  3. In the OPEN IMAGES section, the smaller photo/image looks normal with no issue.

I know it’s an older camera/image format, but is it supported? I didn’t find any other mention of the Coolpix 5700 in the forum search.

Thanks for reaching out. Please send the original image file so I can try to reproduce this.

Thanks for responding!

I uploaded 3 different files from the Nikon 5700 (from 2002-2004).

DSCN0428.TIF (2002) - works fine in Topaz Photo AI v2.0.1 (Open Image is fine)
DSCN0647.NEF (2004) - just shows a black screen (Open Image is fine)
DSCN0657.NEF (2004) - Shows a B&W/w_color/lined (corrupt) image (Open Image is fine)


Thanks for sending the files over. It looks like the only file that opens correctly is the TIF.

The NEF files open but are not read correctly. I’ll ask my team if this is something we can support.

For now, I would recommend converting your NEF to TIF or JPG before processing in Topaz Photo AI.

OK. Thanks!
