UPDATE ( 2013/11/09 ): In the meantime, this post is for owners of Photoshop/Lightroom 5 probably not of interest anymore, because I have just read an article by Adobe on Google+, that there is a new release candidate for Lightroom 5.3 and Camera Raw 8.3 available. This, in addition to other adjustments, this includes support for the Nikon D610.
See Adobe’s blog post here: External Link.

Since I am a new owner of the Nikon D610, I would certainly like to manage or edit my pictures. I currently use Lightroom 4.4 as my RAW converter and for my image management. Unfortunately, as I suspected, the D610 in Lightroom in version 4.x and 5 is not supported ( yet). What to do? After some research on the internet, I found the “ExifTool” to modify the type and the camera model in the RAW files EXIF data.

As a workaround until a new version of Adobe’s “Camera RAW” or Lightroom 5.3 is released, I change, using the ExifTools, the camera model from “NIKON D610” to “NIKON D600”. As a result, Lightroom can import the. NEF files as usual.

To simplify the whole thing, I have written a small batch file, which I run through a shortcut from my desktop or from the Windows8 start screen.

exiftool.exe – model = “NIKON D600” *. NEF

As I convert all RAW files to DNG format there will be no problem to open the files direct from Photoshop.

ATTENTION! Before any changes to the original files are made, a backup of the RAW files should be done!
