Call for DNG support from camera manufacturers
Nov 8, 2008

I've been lurking on the forum for years... sorry I haven't made much of a contribution, but I wanted to throw this out there, for what it's worth.

I've tossed together a petition to send a message to camera makers to support the DNG file format, and Adobe's efforts to offer this as a universal, open format. It's not going to change the world as we know it, but maybe it can help the DNG efforts. It just takes a second to sign it, and your personal information will stay personal.

I'd suggest if you're not current on DNG, you can read Adobe's site here:
http://www.adobe.com/products/dng/
There's a great interview here, on DPR, with Tom Hogarty of Adobe:
http://www.dpreview.com/news/0805/08051503adobeDNG.asp

...explaining some of the details and the current status of DNG and the ISO filing process.

And just to be clear, this petition is not about replacing the makers' RAW file format , it's about adding DNG to the shooting option (specifically Nikon and Canon). It's a start!
