Who's working with a J4 and RAW files here? I'm getting some pretty crappy output from just about every RAW editor except for the AGONIZINGLY slow Nikon Capture NX-D, which unsurprisingly works well with the J4 RAWs.
The biggest problem is Capture One Pro. It doesn't support the newer Nikon 1 cameras like the J4 and V3. So I make DNGs in Adobe DNG converter and import, and then I watch them die on the vine. I get workable files from Lightroom and DxO, but they still look a bit lacking compared to the straight JPEG out of the camera. Below is a screenshot of the output from the J4, as well as the above mentioned apps. The Capture One file speaks for itself, but you can see that even LR and DxO are not really all there. These are straight-in unprocessed files, then exported. I should point out that files from my Nikon D5100, D600, Sony RX100 III, Canon S110, and Fuji S9000 cameras all import fine into all these apps.
For a consistency check, I imported the same DNG files into the other apps and they looked like their RAW counterparts. I also made DNGs from my Sony RX100 III RAWs and imported them into Capture One, and they looked like their RAW counterparts. So it's something about the J4 files that affecting all the apps really, but Capture One the most for some reason. I may have to relegate J4 RAWs to NX-D, which is torturous, or simply accept the JPEGs out of the camera, which can be problematic at higher ISOs.
Anyone else getting this from their J4s? Thanks.
