    Canon CR2 to DNG issue. DNG files too big!

      I'm experiencing what I believe may be a few issues whilst converting from Canon CR2 RAW files to the Adobe DNG format.

      (Camera is Canon 5D Mk2)

       

      For example, I have a folder containing CR2 RAW files which size = approx' 410MB. But when I perform the DNG conversion to a new folder, the total file size of that folder containing the converted DNG images is over 800MB! Does this sound correct?

       

      I thought converting to DNG reduced the overall file size of the RAW image somewhat?

       

      For info, I'm using the latest version of the converter with no JPEG preview or embedded original RAW file selected.

       

       

      THANKS
