Is PHOTOfunSTUDIO really my only option to view/edit RAWs from the GH3?
Feb 13, 2014

This is the first time I've tried to view/edit/process the RAW file format from the GH3 and I have to say...I'm a bit upset.

I'm a windows 7 x64 user, and the microsoft camera codec pack doesn't support the GH3 (but they of course have a solution for windows 8 users to view GH3 RAWs...), and even my Adobe CS5 software suite can not open it.  It seems I am stuck with the, what appears to be, crappy PHOTOfunSTUDIO that is provided with the camera.  I've been googling around and haven't found anything yet, but I've got my fingers crossed that someone has found a solution here.  I did find a couple of threads here that spoke about the same problem, but there didn't seem to be a solution.  There was a "solution" that pointed to software that you had to pay for...but I don't consider that a solution.

Does Panasonic provide the codecs required to view these at all?  Or does anyone else?  Maybe an Adobe update?

Thank you kindly!
