Z9 raw support?

New user here, still in trial mode.
Any idea when raw format for Nikon Z9 will be supported? I really like this program as a culling pre-process before working on my pictures in LR, but from what I've seen, working with the raw images would be a big improvement.

Dear Sir:

It is supported, unless you mean pseudo-raw (HE*/HE).

Ah, but I am using HE*. Any expectation if/when this will be supported?

Dear Sir:

At present, FastRawViewer provides JPEG previews for Nikon's HE* and HE.FYI: those are lossy pseudo-raw formats, they don't even pass Nikon's own definition of 'RAW':


Exclusive to Nikon cameras, the NEF is Nikon's RAW file format. RAW image files, sometimes referred to as digital

negatives, contain all the image information captured by the camera's sensor, along with the image's metadata (the

camera's identification and its settings, the lens used and other information). The NEF file is written to the memory

card in either an uncompressed or "lossless" compressed form.



Nikon HE/HE* format is supported in 2.0.9-Beta: https://www.fastrawviewer.com/blog/FastRawViewer-2-0-9-Beta

Great! Thanks for the update. Beta works fine for me - quite an improvement.
