Lumix DMC-LX2 RAW support

Postby difool on Thu May 14, 2009 8:34 am


i've found that the support from 3rd Party or Panasonic concerning RAW is very low, especially if you still use XP/SP3. Panasonic offers raw decode for the LX3 RW2 format and only for Vista, there is no support for the LX2. Do you thik it possible or a worthwile thought to try to implement Plugin ability for Adobe Camera RAW or dcraw? Widening the supported Cameras and formats will certainly help to spread FPV. And concering the quality of the 3rd party raw converters: FPV still is only a viewer so the main work in handling raw files will be in different programs. Here is where raw conversions need the best quality.

Panasonic currently supports only the LUMIX Digital Camera DMC-LX3, FZ28, FX150, and G1 with their codec, moreover they indeed require Windows Vista. There is little hope to see them release an XP version of the codec in my opinion (it would be done already).

We have no plans to write raw codecs at this time, but wrapping dcraw is a good idea and will be investigated.
