1 Answer 1


Since you have a D5300, the answer is clear — Darktable just added support for that camera in version 1.4.2, at which point it was listed as "experimental". Darktable 1.6 was released a month ago (December 2014), so upgrading to that should solve your issue.

If it doesn't, I'd add your feedback (and a sample file?) to this issue tracker request: Feature #9764: Support Nikon D5300 NEFs — it may be that there are still some kinks in that experimental support to work out.
