Does the setting "Camera Raw 5.4 or later" and the "Custom DNG Compatibility" = "Backward Version: DNG 1.3" (with linear and uncompressed unchecked) give identical results?
If not, what is the difference? I have used custom compatibility 1.3 (linear/uncompressed) to convert a lot of files and want to make sure that this was a good decision.
Little info on the actual difference of these settings is found in the provided readme.
I created two files, one with comptibility set to "Camera Raw 5.4 or later" and one with "Custom DNG Compatibility" = "Backward Version: DNG 1.3".
I created an md5 checksum for both files, and it differs.
Perhaps that has to do with info like timestamp of the conversion and a verification checksum (if i recall things right) being embedded into XMP?
This is a very good question. I'm just about to convert to DNG myself and this struck me. Bump!
