Priority: Low

v2013.105 fixes a preview page bug when printing posters and an image editor bug related to using the mirror filter after applying rotation.

Don't know if this is an exclusive bug to v2013.105 or not as I'm still getting used to printing from a NEF file.

However, in NEF files from a Nikon D800E, there is some thin black and dark magenta/blue and black line that is approx. 1mm wide that appears on only the right edge of the images when shot in landscape mode.  The first line the entire length of the edge is the dark magenta/blue (maybe 0.3mm) and the second wider line adjacent is black (maybe 0.66 for a total of 1mm overall width.). The left edge is clean of the line(s).  It is visible in the Editor side too.

A NEF converted file to TIFF and printed does not show that line in the program.  Huh

I'll try and attach a JPG showing the line (image rotated 90 degrees CCW from landscape so the odd color lines are up) that show the two color lines and the subsequent TIFF image from the NEF that doesn't show the lines.



Fwiw.

The D800E is not listed in the supported cameras. The D800 is and the samples images I have from that model are fine.

Correction, the D800E is listed

I purchased QImage Ultimate in November 2012 and have received updates through 104 as a registered user.

Did something change as I requested 105 using the same proceedure as before?

No email back with the update.

Please advise

Terrry,

I thought it was supported since v2019.219 three versions back:  Huh

v2012.219    Dated 07/04/12.

v2012.219 includes:

    A major raw update that adds support for 31 new camera models:

    Canon PowerShot G1 X
    Canon PowerShot SX220 HS
    Canon EOS 5D Mark III
    Canon EOS 650D / Digital Rebel T4i / Kiss Digital X6i
    Canon EOS-1D X
    Casio EX-Z8
    Fuji HS30EXR
    Fuji F600EXR
    Fuji F770EXR
    Fuji X-Pro1
    Fuji X-S1
    Nikon D4
    Nikon D3200
    Nikon D800
    Nikon D800E
    Nikon Coolpix P7100
    Olympus E-M5
    Panasonic DMC-GF5
    Samsung NX20
    Sigma SD15
    Sigma SD1
    Sigma SD1 Merill
    Sigma DP1
    Sigma DP1S
    Sigma DP1X
    Sigma DP2
    Sigma DP2S
    Sigma DP2X
    Sony NEX-7
    Sony NEX-F3
    Sony SLT-A37
    Sony SLT-A57


It's a pretty obvious line in the D800E on the right-hand side.  Might be something to do with the anti-alias filter in that model over the D800 model, but shouldn't be there.

Fwiw, it shows as a "white & magenta" line in Corel's RAW viewer in their latest Paint Shop Pro X5 (v15.1.0.10).  In Qimage Ultimate 2013.105 it is a "black & magenta" line.  Both about 1mm in width running the entire right end.

The other 5 RAW programs I use do not show the two lines at the end of the photo, just QU and Corel's PSP X5 show them, albeit different colors.  Even Windows 8 Pro "Windows Photo Viewer" displays the D800E file without the lines at the right end correctly.  See attached photo below:

Also, I also just tried a NEF out of a D7000 and it is okay in QU and no two-color lines as above, just the D800E shows them.

Mack,
I missed that information, it is on the web web site  Roll Eyes

That is not the raw file but the jpeg embedded in the raw so you'd expect the  in camera jpeg to be ok.
Sounds like it's one for Mike to check out.

Did you click Help About and then update now? That should initiate the e-mail to download the new version.
Also, if you are still running v104, a notification will appear in the title bar at the top; clicking that also opens the Help -About.

Definitely! I just downloaded a couple of D800E raw file samples and the problem is clearly visible.

Did some checking and found that the images from the "E" are 7424 wide.  The images from the D800 (NO E) are 7378 wide.  According to the specs, both cameras should be the same.
The extra pixels might account for the problem.

Photo shop shows 7360 wide, so it looks like they might have given it a haircut too.

Better wait for Mike!!

Mack,
Curious!
Did you receive any firmware upgrade for the camera recently?

If you Google D800E firmware upgrade, there has been at least one this year but still many issues remain with the camera according to some forums.

That may be true, but the question is, has Mack applied any upgrade.

Interesting - I get a similar line - looks like a rope - on the end of portrait oriented NEFs from my D600. I assumed that this is because it is not yet supported by dcraw.

Fred, yes it has the most current updates: A and B (A: 1.00 / B: 1.01).  The "C" one came later I think. That "C" one is some extra one that Nikon posted later than the first pair and they call it "Distortion Control Data" for cameras (Most of their DSLRs) that support it.  It is found here:http://www.nikonimglib.com/dcdata/index.html#os-windows

I saw in the current update (A&B) this:
Modifications enabled with this upgrade of firmware, release date May 29, 2012

    When a still image was captured while viewing existing images in playback mode, the monitor turned off, the memory card access lamp glowed steadily, and, in some rare cases, the camera ceased to respond to operations. This issue has been resolved.
    When the Wireless Transmitter WT-4 was used with certain settings applied, RAW images were also transferred when Wireless transmitter > Transfer settings > Send file as was set to JPEG only. This issue has been resolved.
    A dark shadow sometimes appeared at the bottom edge of images captured with Active D-Lighting set to any option other than Off with Image area set to 5:4 (30x24). This issue has been resolved.


Maybe that last one?  Although it says on the bottom edge and this occurs on the right end as viewed in Landscape mode.  I don't see an issue there.

Adobe RAW on my NEF's shows: Adobe RGB (1998), 16 bit, 4312x7360, 36.2MP, 240ppi at the bottom of the ACR screen as mentioned already.

Odd why the D800 and D800E would be different sizes in reality though. Odd why they would allow more MP in the D800E if that is the case: D800=36.24MP & D800E=36.47MP if both are 4912 in height. Interesting trivia bit though.  Huh

Glad to see Terry sees it too in his downloaded D800E NEFs and it isn't my camera acting up.  My fear is having Nikon work on it.  Shocked

Strange Mel's D600 shows the same bit of extra rope, but if it isn't supported yet in QU then it may "Need a haircut too."

For a fact!   I didn't know this until today...
The D 800E is on the list of supported cameras but it was put there because Nikon said the D800 and D 800 E were the same... It really was not officially tested and approved.

From what I understand, there will be a new DCRAW for us within a few more days.
Then, the problem should be addressed in the new release.

Terry was kind enough to send me the "E" images so I could play too!
