Re: ColorChecker Question (OT)

I convert all RAW files from Canon 30D, 50D, 1000D, 1D3, 5DII and Nikon D40, D90, D300s, D700 and D4 to DNG. Before I begun doin' that way I spend 2 years comparing DNG and RAW from Canon and Nikon.

My test show that no loss of visual information in converted files, and all required EXIF data is here. Storage space is an issue because my and collegue archive totals just 5 TB and DNG are 20% smaller for that.

Image processing speed by ALR much better in DNG especially in batch applications.and files are smaller.
