    Capture One 4.6 and DNG files

    I upgraded to 4.6 today and find to my dismay that the Lens Correction Tool shows "Unsupported File" for DNG files. These are Phase P45+ files saved as DNG files in Adobe's DNG Converter.

    This means I cannot use the various lens correction tools available in this tab, a real pita.

    Unconverted files are fine. The EXIF info for the DNG files is complete except for the serial number and firmware of the camera.(These show in the original Phase tifs.)

    Anybody have any thoughts on this? All my earlier files have been converted to DNG. I can correct them in LR2 but I really prefer C1.

    Bill...

    AIUI, the only way to gain the C1 image processing tools is to process a raw file it supports. Since Adobe and C1 are kind of competitors, I am not surprised at C1's decision to not support DNG. So I suspect you will need to reprocess those raws in C1. (And frankly, I think you'd want to do that anyway so you start with a "pure" file for C1 that it work all of its magic on )

    If you ever go to a forum event or workshop I'm at or want to call me I can give you my rant on DNG files.

    Best idea in digital photography on paper. Least useful idea in practice.

    THanks to you too, Doug. Fortunately I stopped converting my files a few months ago and I won't be resuming!

    Keep your raws in whatever flavor the camera manufacturer intended.
    The unintended consequences of conversion often cannot be undone.
    DNG is an over-glorified tiff, and not at all that "standard". It also allows adobe to hold your images hostage.

    Another issue - does 4.6 provide auto correction for the Mamiya 28 mm lens? (I'm not at home right now and can't check my own files.) I understood that it does not - but Stan Sholik's review in Pro Photographer magazine says it does.

    Yes it does but not corner sharpness which is the missing lens correction. Everything else works as 4.5 version
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
