> Very good news for Nikon shooters.

Marketingspeak decoded by Adobe's Thomas Knoll:

"What this means (so far) is that Nikon has added to their
existing SDK (which performs the entire raw conversion as a black
box) a new 'mini-SDK', which has the sole function of reading the
white balance parameters from a NEF file (while still allowing the
host application to do its own raw conversion).
The upcoming Adobe Camera Raw 3.2 and DNG Converter 3.2 will use
this Nikon 'mini-SDK' to provide 'as shot' white balance support
for the Nikon D2X, D2Hs, and D50."

In other words:

Nikon will continue to encrypt the WB (and other metadata such as
lens parameters).

I agree that it is indeed good news that Nikon now will provide Adobe
with the tools necessary to get access to the WB. But the fundamental
problem - that the metadata in the image is just as much the property
of the photographer as the image data, and therefore should not be
encrypted in the first place - remains.
