Panasonic GX1, raw-file to dng

Mar 1, 2012 1:36 AM

This camera is supposedly supported in the latest release of Adobe DNG Converter.

I can't get it to work.


Most of the time the converter program hangs with 1 file left to convert.

If I only select a small number of files to convert it runs through all.


The problem is I can not view the converted dng-files.

Running Mac OS X Lion.

The files can not be viewed through preview or Aperture.


Has anybody been successful converting GX1-raw-files to DNG?

    Is it really hung, or does it appear to be stuck on the last image?  If you move the cursor when it's on the last image, does it finish?


    If you uncheck the "Fast Load Data" option, are the resulting DNG images readable in the other software?

    Which compatibility versions did you try?  For example, 4.6?

    It is possible that the OS simply doesn't support this camera model yet.

    You understood correctly about how the DNG conversion works.


    However, not all software reads all DNG.


    For example, sometimes a software still internally checks whether it supports a given camera model and may refuse to process unrecognized models.


    I will do some of my own testing later with these images and let you know what I find.
