Some tips on how I use my D70s
Converting RAW images
The following command is used to convert raw NEF images to something readable.
dcraw -T -6 -W *.NEF
This preserves the 16-bit color depth, but yields larger files, of course.
The following command uses 8-bit output, but preserves the crucial camera white balance.
dcraw -T -W *.NEF
Based on the info from kenrockwell.com, I switched back to using JPEG images with large image size (“L”) and normal compression (“NORM”).
I set a custom image optimization with saturation set to “+” and color mode set to “IIIa”.
