A few questions from an LX5 and .rw2 noob
Sep 27, 2011

I've had my LX5 for about three weeks now, and I love it. I hardly pick up my Nikon DSLR anymore, unless I need a telephoto.

I have three quick questions:

First, does the LX5 embed a dark frame in its raw files?

Second, what software do you recommend for working with .rw2 files? My current workflow is to use Adobe DNG Converter and then edit in Gimp. On my current budget, the cheaper, the better, but I realize beggars can't be choosers.

Third, since I'm just now getting into the world of raw files (even with the Nikon), is there a resource anyone would recommend for learning about working with raw images? I especially need to learn more about noise reduction, but I'd also like to look into chromatic aberration, lens distortion, etc.

Thanks in advance!
