Hi all, I've just got a GRD2, very happy with it, decision made after seeing the photos on this forum and reading Sean's review.
Here's the questions.
1) I have Picasa which reads DNG files. It shows a much darker file than the Fine jpeg which also imports. the histogram shows nothing up the right-hand end of the scale on the DNG, but the jpeg does. Why? Does it matter?
2) When I try to use Silkypix or Lightroom or LightZone or Capture One, I get a very different 'raw' RAW image (on screen) from the one shown in Picasa. Is this because all these programs do some processing on import? Can I stop that?
3) If I export a full resolution DNG to jpeg from Picasa I get a 20MB file which I can import into Noise Ninja, which looks the same as the RAW file in Picasa. I can get a much better on-screen noise reduction in Noise Ninja than any of the above programs. No-one here mentions noise ninja, am I missing something?
