Bug Description

The Nikon CookPix P7000 saves raw files with the ".NRW" extension. exiv2 seems to support it but rapid photo downloader does not.

If I cange the line in /usr/share/rapid-photo-downloader/rapid/ from

RAW_EXTENSIONS = ['arw', 'dcr', 'cr2', 'crw', 'dng', 'mos', 'mef', 'mrw',


RAW_EXTENSIONS = ['arw', 'dcr', 'cr2', 'crw', 'dng', 'mos', 'mef', 'mrw','nrw',

Then is all works fine, thumbnails and metadata are read and it downloads the raw files.

Could this be added to the next release please?

Hi John,

Thanks for your bug report. Sorry about the delayed reply but I recently returned from being overseas for a couple of months. When I go to this page the NRW format is not listed:

However I have tested a sample file, and based on my tentative testing exiv2 on Ubuntu 12.04 seems to read the metadata ok. So I will add it to the list of supported formats. If users reports bugs and/or crashes with that format further action will be required. In the past older versions of exiv2 have crashed when reading certain formats.
