Dig It All in the RAW with RawDigger !
May 9, 2012

Why would you want to install RawDigger ?

Hate to just throw away available RAW Dynamic Range ?

Wondering if your little Blinkies are but little Twinkies ?

Want to see what a cruel fantasy your Histograms can be ?

Want to really know how color truly affects your metering ?

Want the built-in power of ExifTool meta-data information ?

Want a constantly evolving and powerful RAW analysis tool ?
.

Look no farther, the truth is out there, and is now easy to see:

Win/Mac 32/64-bit: http://www.rawdigger.com/news/rawdigger-0-9-11

It is free , non-invasive, and high quality - if you look, you will see ! ...

Many thanks indeed to the good people at: http://www.rawdigger.com/

Perhaps Iliah Borg can verify this information. I have been using RawDigger to analyze E-M5 ORF image-files, and it appears that there exist no limitations whatsoever in using the present version of RawDigger for analysis (even though the E-M5 does not appear in the "supported cameras" list).

When one selects the "As Shot" color rendering in "RGB render white balance" things look pretty good as it is. Probably the only thing to be added is a color-profile specific to the E-M5. However, the program is for RAW image-file analysis (as opposed to acting as a viewer). Thus, "no biggie" ...

Since Raw Photo Processor (RPP) now supports the E-M5 (and the same people are involved in the development of RawDigger ), it is likely that the next release of RawDigger will do just that.

Do I get an assignment?
In reply to Detail Man, May 9, 2012

DM, since you're leading the class, do you have an assignment for the students?

I must admit I've downloaded, played, read and attempted to figure out the right question to find the answers to.

I've looked at the site information but found they left me half way through the explanation.

Can you provide "just a little" direction or ask THE question we are trying to answer?

I loved your opening but still unsure where to start...

Hmmm. The "Right Honorable Iliah Borg " (stated quite sincerely here) is without a doubt the "full and tenured professor" in this "department". I am but a self-taught "nerdboy" who the institution appears to allow to wander within in the halls of, often seemingly managing to horrify and deeply offend the "student body" by exposing them to subversive chatter relating to what I perceive to be "technical realities" at play within our most cherished practices of "pointing and duly praying"

Though (clearly) yet unapproved by the peoples' "Ministry of Oh So Hands-On-ish-ness", consider the following (unofficial) propaganda offered. Waiver and Disclaimer: Associating with "known dissidents" may possibly invoke a visit from the "Men with Black Cams" who make people disappear .

What are you interested in doing ? For instance (including, but not necessarily limited to):

  • Hate to just throw away available RAW Dynamic Range ?

  • Wondering if your little Blinkies are but little Twinkies ?

  • Want to see what a cruel fantasy your Histograms can be ?

  • Want to really know how color truly affects your metering ?

Choose from the above menu (or, request a special dish of your choosing). We can "go from there" and (possibly) "Professor Borg" may grace us with his profound wisdoms (should he choose)

No. RawDigger is a free application for Win/Mac 32/64-bit. Thus, this thread is not "advertising".

rawdigger can work w/ EM5 raws w/o issues as there are no changes in raw format there.

Rawdigger is using LibRaw, LibRaw = refactored (and enhanced/fixed) code (C++ library) from dcraw ( http://www.cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/ ) , new cameras formally appear there as soon as dcraw updated... however if the raw format itself is the same (which is the case for em5) it can open and extract data from em5 w/o issues

Rawdigger and LibRaw are products of Libraw LLC ( http://www.libraw.com/ )

Libraw LLC = Iliah Borg and Alex Tutubalin ( http://blog.lexa.ru/ )

RPP = is developed by Andrey Tverdokhleb w/ a lot of input from Iliah Borg

RPP is not using LibRaw, it predates LibRaw creation chronologically

Definitely a 'teach thyself' type once I get the 'reason' for the answer for which I have no question.

Sure, I'll bite, I definitely want a twinkie.

Give me a couple of steps DM in the right direction and I'll run with it!

How to adopt other developer’s work and make it their own...

There is not a single shred of innovation in any of their work, not just rawdigger, just shameful repackaging of what has already been done by other talented developers.

You have truly been assimilated!

With regards to the last version of RAWnalyze 2.10.4.0 , here:

http://dave-anderson-photo.com/blog/2010/08/23/gabor-rawnalyze-author-rip/

... RawDigger vastly improves and expands upon the late Gabor Schorr's excellent previous work.

With regards to Rawshack (a command-line utility only) here:

http://www.testcams.com/rawshack/

... you seem to have it "back to front" (as a certain friend of mine sometimes says). Note that Rawshack itself actually uses code developed by the closely associated LibRaw developers here:

http://www.libraw.org/

So, what is your valid point (if any)? It seems that true shame arises out of making false/misleading statements. Why fill up DPReview's valuable disk-space with such pompous, baseless blabber ?

Why I've installed this software? I have plenty of hard drive space, and came to conclusion to get this program just in case and, maybe, because of curiosity

RD (raw digger) can't improve DR. This is FYI data program

Wondering if your little Blinkies are but little Twinkies ?

Not really

Want to see what a cruel fantasy your Histograms can be ?

Not really. I trust my eyes

Want to really know how color truly affects your metering ?

I trust my eyes and manufacturer setup: P&O use similar software to setup WB, and do it professionally.

Want the built-in power of ExifTool meta-data information ?

Again, this is FYI data only

Want a constantly evolving and powerful RAW analysis tool ?

Not really. It does not help quality of shooting

Well, if one will follow Colin's postings on various forums from Adobe's to Rawtherapee's (and his constant changing of venues to publish his profiles) it is clear that he has some personality disorder :-)... may be it is a sign of (unrecognized) genius of course
