RAWDelete is FREE utility to delete/rename unmatched RAW files (.nef , .cr2, .crw) according to JPG files in the folder (right side). This is great tool to keep both files synchronised when shooting into RAW+JPG. Working with JPG is much faster and unwished RAW files can be then easily deleted or renamed. Since version 1.3 this utility also can export JPG from RAW file! So shooting into both is not necessary and you can save some significant space on the card.
As mentioned above - this tool can quickly extract the Image (JPG) from RAW file in its highest available resolution supported by DSLR, plus user can choose to export EXIF data into the text file. There are two formats of EXIF data. ASC and TXT. During my test on Nikon D810 RAW files, this tool extracts JPG from RAW and doesn't develope the image like Adobe LightRoom. Therefore its much much faster than Adobe. I think great tool for sport/wildlife photographers to save their time when selecting and deleting images.
The tool uses EXIV2 and EXIFTOOL technologies. In case this utility doesn't convert your RAW file, try to upgrade Exiftool software. Download, rename and replace the .exe file in your folder.
