uh? The only issue is that Adobe wrote the standard profile name for the Nikon Z7 in uppercase while the tag in the DNG is not. Other than that, there is no issue and you can create the profiles using any of the three workarounds.
This is what I read a while back at Thom Hogan's website and I have no idea whether this is the issue that is causing problems:

"When will we get a raw converter that understands the Z images?"

A better question than you think. According to my friend Iliah Borg, the Z series uses a completely new structure for the tags/data in its NEF images. The compressed data is in the same form, but in a different place, for instance. This means that it won't be quite as simple as taking the D850 converter routines and substituting out the Z7 name for D850 ;~). Iliahs' LibRaw team has already done some of the work, so a RawDigger beta already understands uncompressed NEFs. I suspect that both RawDigger and FastRawViewer will both get quick updates.

I also expect we'll see Capture NX-D updated right around first shipment of the Z7. Nikon does seem to be cooperating more with Adobe these days, so I wouldn't be surprised to see a reasonably quick update from them, too.

But there's more going on now to consider: the changes in EXPEED6 now produce different sharpening and styles (looks) for JPEGs. So creating LUTs for the Adobe product that match up JPEG output versus NEF conversion is going to take some work and time, too.

Try a roll or two & see if it is where you want to be.

Ah really? Very strange indeed. I'll have to look into this.

Thanks for the feedback.


Sorry! sorry! sorry!!  Don't know what I was smoking when I typed my reply. It didn't open my files at all. Z7 support was announced for December but I didn't check if it arrived!!

That all sounds good.  I do borrow a friends Mamiya RB67 every now and then and run off a roll.  I'm less than happy with the lab who process though. I often have to retouch my scans, scratches and dust etc.  On the hunt for a good place.  My friend tells me I'm nuts not to process myself.

But my biggest issue is my rusty brain, who finds it difficult to switch back to techniques I've not used since the nineties, which has grown used to instant feedback, endless shooting, and now with the electronic viewfinder and histogram, confirmation of exposure.

I've started using an incident light meter on my landscape shoots, that's been great, I've extended it to my digital workflow, it's an improvement off the viewfinder.

There's a wide range of great camera systems you can buy into now.   The X-T3 is certainly among them.

Use Capture One or Iridient Developer.  Both are great, C1 has a decent DAM and great editing/finishing tools, ID's raw interpretation results in slightly sharper images.   Avoid LR, though some say it has improved of late, I'd be surprised if Adobe weren't active here.  DXO software is a non-starter, won't see X-Trans files.

That's pretty well it.  There's tons of reviews out there, I don't see many saying don't buy it.

Thanks for clarifying, Bob. The colours are so fresh and rich it appears the fungus is also ‘fresh’.
