NikonD1X.DNG is a NIKON CORPORATION: NIKON D1X image created on 2003:10:24 12:04:11
Format[TIFF/EP], ByteOrder[littleEndian], Pixels/Sensors(1324x4024), BitDepth(8)

This file was created by saving a Nikon D1X image in DNG format using Photoshop CS2.   The format should be DNG, not TIFF/EP.   What happened to the bit depth?

This contains Adobe XMP metadata, but I am not formatting this yet.  

The WB information has been included in the DNG AsShot Neutral tag.   These are simple RGB scalars.   But the values are quite different than DCRAW extracted from the same image.   This does not mean that either is wrong.   It simply suggests that the two software editors use different algorithms to apply the white balance adjustments.

The TIFF tags count has gone from 47 to 80.   The EXIF tags count has gone from 32 to 13.   Among the EXIF tags dropped is the notation of the Auto WB setting.

There are no unknown or invalid tags.
