Hi Nicola,

Like you, I frequently use Digikam and perhaps I can give you a few hints about how it works with DNG (raw) files.

Actually the significant differences in brightness you see in your DNG vs JPG files is attributable to a Digikam setting for auto exposure correction, i.e. Digikam will automatically "fix" the exposure for underexposed or overexposed pictures when developing raw files. You can obviously turn off this setting.

How can I turn off auto exposure correction in digikam 1.2.0 ?

You probably configured it when you first used Digikam, here:

and here:

Obviously you can change these settings at any time to suit your workflow/habits. Regarding the automatic exposure correction, it is the "Auto Brightness" box which you have already found and unchecked!
