Johannes, a short update:

  • checking / unchecking auto-brightness does not seem to have any effect on a picture's preview (embedded jpeg preview) but it has a significant effect on DNG imports (Edit -> Import).

This is because the preview is based on the exposure-corrected low resolution JPEG which is embedded in the DNG file.

  • there are still huge differences between in-camera JPGs and the jpegs obtained from the raw files via digikam.

Oh yes. In many cases I prefer the JPEGs from the GXR rather than anything I manage to come up with in postprocessing using RT/Digikam/Gimp. Ricoh has really fine-tuned the JPEG engine in the GXR, in fact each GXR module has its own fine-tuned JPEG engine.

This is one of the reasons I always shoot in raw + JPEG fine mode. For 95% of my photos I don't even have to deal with raw developing, I use the out-of-camera JPEGs from the GXR.
