  • I must admit that I haven't read the whole thread nor the previous one, nor do I intend to, but the facts are as follows: (1) When a digital camera captures an image, it first reads a scan of the raw ...
  • Lowest shadow noise at what ISO setting? Since you refer to your Canon (DSLR?),  which Canon DSLR's have notably higher deep shadow noise at low ISO;s than many other makes of cameras you are ...
  • You don't name the folder; you name a drive, any drive, including a partition. And have you tried the "S-SW-130" I gave in my last post? It seems to me that later versions started at about ...
  • If it works like all other versions of Pentax Digital Camera Utility, then one can install the program downloaded from the above link just by having a drive named the same as the original ...
  • I think you mean you can see a larger range of colours in developed JPEG's such as those in the links you provided as compared to viewing raw data from the camera developed - somehow, but with what? ...
  • You should search this forum and pentaxforum as I did and you may find the following links: here , and here .  Note that the location of the "CheckInfo.ini" file changes between Windows XP and ...
  • This sounds like the usual standard first-time Pentax DSLR user question if you do a search on something like "clunking noise".... In fact, it is indeed that "the entire (sensor - GBG) mechanism ...
  • You could use Dave Coffin's dcraw with the "-T" (make TIFF output) and either the "-d" or "-D" (document mode without interpolation and without or with colour channel scaling, respectively). Regard ...
  • We already have the same pixel density as 54 MP 36 by 24 mm. sensors in current APS-C 24 MP sensors and high ISO noise isn't a problem when the images are compared to lower density sensors on a ...
  • Hello Kerusker, You are correct, Faststone only has colour management (when turned on which is not the default) when there are ICC profiles embedded in the JPEG or TIFF image files. I don't worry ...
  • William, that's interesting as the knowledge-base link doesn't state that it supports DNG but rather only the PEF format for the K-30. As for DNG from the K-30 being "standard Adobe", since the DNG ...
  • You're welcome, Chris.  Yes, as alluded in my post there are some limitations to the use of CHDK and one of them is the time it takes to save a raw file.  I used CHDK on an old A700 (6 MP instead ...
  • Chris,  in their raw to JPEG development, cameras don't use a "pure" gamma value but rather apply a Tone Response Curve (TRC) which is adapted to give a particular "look" to average images as to ...
  • You seem to understand how FastStone (FS) works generally as to displaying the embedded JPEG (which will have the colour, saturation, contrast, and sharpness setting as per the camera settings, in ...
  • I, too, purchased an early Sony Mavica - a FD-7 - in about 1997 and was a digital camera novice at the time. Compared to today's digital camera specifications, the camera was a joke: (1) It cost almost ...
  • Mike, we can't really answer for those programs that aren't "open source" as we don't really know what they are doing, but the raw conversion of Faststone uses DCRaw for which we do have source ...
  • Mike, John has it right:  most viewers view the embedded JPEG image by default, and that will be the combined HDR data created by the camera.  This includes Faststone, which by default just views ...
  • Replied in owners manual
    You get the operating manual direct from the Ricoh-Pentax site .  Accessories will be more of a problem for such an old camera, but some things will be compatible such as any Pentax infrared remote ...
