    Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 support for G1

    Camera Raw 5.2 update allows support for the G1 (LX3, D-Lux4, G10, 5DII, etc.) to CS4 users. http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=4219

    Please note that the .dng converter is going to make the file 3x bigger (for the time being) for the Panasonic/Leica offerings.

    HI Cindy
    thanks for that - have you tried it with aperture?
    So, how big are those RAW files? (My camera just arrived half an hour ago)

    Just this guy you know

    About 45 MB (lossless compression) w/o embedding original file; about 55 MB with embedding. Big beasts...

    But they´re distortion corrected, if anybody´s wondering.

    16 bit tif´s from Silkypix are around 69 MB.

    Let´s hope this is just a temporary solution; it is a big step in the right direction, however. Goodbye, Silkypix!

    Thank you Cindy for that hint .
    I have just updated my PSCS4 with the RAW 5.2 version .
    I don't mind a file size of 70MB as disk storage is currently very cheap .

    Re: Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 support for G1

    Well, I've downloaded the new version of DNG Converter
    converted the files to linear DNG files - Aperture will have nothing to do with them.
    Damn Already!

    Looks like one will have to wait until Apple get themselves together.

    This post by Eric Chan clarifies what the new DNG converter is doing with the G1 files.

    Re: Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 support for G1

    I was able to use DNG converter on G1 files that I shot with the 50 macro lens. I read them into Aperture and it was happy with them. There obviously was no lens compensation data added to those files.

    HI Cindy
    Exactly how did you convert the files?
    I couldn't read them at all (Aperture said 'unsupported image format')

    Jono, Try it without converting to linear (for now). If we are losing a little data until they get full support for the G1, it is still better than Silkypix, IMHO.

    Jono, I think Cindy's files worked because they had no lens compensation data tagged on in camera. When the kit lens(es) is used the the camera will add the lens corrections to the file and this forces a linear DNG file to be created in the current version of the Adobe converter. These file are also larger (40+mb) than the DNG files created from RAW files without the lens data (10+mb). When you get your adapter try it again with one of your Oly lenses and it should work.

    Regards,
    Carl

    Re: Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 support for G1

    Yes, Carl is probably right. I am going to use the kit lens today and see if I can convert them. I have been so smitten with the 50 macro, that I have been avoiding the kit lens.

    Cindy, Show us some samples. I would love to see some 50/2 shots. I am sure it would be fabulous.

    Carl, Cindy, Thank you.

    My adaptor should arrive tomorrow I hope (it was despatched from Japan on Monday).

    I can't wait to get the old 50 macro out . . . incidentally, I'm assuming that it doesn't auto-focus, is that right?

    Jono,
    I just tried DNG converter on a shot with the kit lens. It loads into Aperture, but when you click on it, you get the message as you describe. I believe that Carl was correct. We will have to wait to use Aperture when we use that lens.
    The 35 and 50 macros are manual focus.... but it is so easy to manual focus with the G1!

    Here are a couple hand-held in the wind. I will do better when the weather co-operates.
    g1 and 50 macro (stopped down a stop or two).



    Raining in the desert! Why didn't Guy tell me?

    Re: Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 support for G1

    Two questions (after first searching thru other posts):

    What is the quickest workflow for raw G1 files using CS3?

    And regarding the 50 macro, which lens is this exactly?

    Thanks
