Camera RAW

Maybe Adobe add a little insider knowledge of their own to the manufacturers' spec! Wink

I have given DPP a try with Canon RAW files recently. Maybe just a question of getting used to it, but I decided not to persevere.

Quote:The reason Adobe can't read Foveon sensors has nothing to do with talking to Sigma. Adobe has big trouble with raw files from Fuji Foveon sensors, is that because they don't talk to Sigma or they aren't as good at writing software for Foveon sensors. Sigma's boss said on Twitter they send Adobe loads of info. Adobe can't do the job properly.

Fuji don't do Foveon sensors. Only Sigma cameras have them. Sigma owns the technology and they are the only user.

Most camera manufacturers do talk with Adobe

How do you know this?

Why is it when a new camera comes out it's not already supported by Adobe? Because they don't talk is why.

Luminous Landscape's interview with Adobe's Eric Chan is how I know.

Canon use insider knowledge for their software and support Canon cameras before anyone else does. End result is what matters and I prefer the output from DPP to that of ACR.

Because Adobe produce such excellent software there's a misconception they are going to be better at every aspect. I don't think they are better with Canon raw than Canon are.

There is nothing wrong with preferring to use Canon's DPP. Personally I prefer what I can do with Lightroom.

If camera makers had a DNG option it would help consumers though. Nearly every time a new camera is released people complain they have to wait for software other than the manufacturer (which can be not very good) supplies to support it.

Fuji do a knock off of Foveon. They can't call it Foveon as it is a brand name - like Sellotape, Biro, Jacuzzi, Portakabin, Dictaphone etc.

Check out Qimage. Steep, (very), learning curve but leaves you feeling like a genius when mastered. Technically very advanced and how many programmes do you have where you can e-mail the designer for a personal answer to a problem. Superb results and very fairly priced. I think a free trial is still available.
