    Tried pulling up some .NEF (Nikon Raw format picture files) off an SD card that reads fine on my work Windows 7 PC.

    In previous versions they would read fine into iPhoto or Preview or Gimp or whatever on Mac OS X.

    Today's shoot contained 9 pictures and they all read fine on the pc.

    On the Mac weird things are afoot: only the first and the last picture display correctly, the remainder are all solid black except for one that is half of the image and the other half is black with some digital pixelization in the center.


    Can anyone with a Nikon D3200 with 1.03 firmware confirm similar issues? I was writing to a Class 10 64 gig memory card (the card was empty except for these 9 pictures).

    When I attempted to open the black images in Preview or even the first or last image it would cause the GUI to hang on the computer. Very weird.
