Working with RAW Files

RAW formats vary from camera to camera and every manufacturer uses its own proprietary RAW file format (some have two) for storing image data. Sometimes a company will terminate support for a discontinued camera’s RAW format, leaving photographers high and dry. That’s why Adobe defined a non-proprietary format for RAW called Digital Negative (DNG) that can be used by hardware and software developers to provide RAW processing in the future. So far, Leica’s Digital Modul-R, Hasselblad H2D, Ricoh GR Digital, and the Samsung Pro815 use DNG as their native RAW format. Is this a trend? Let’s hope so.
