How do I processing RAW images in the same way my camera processes JPEGs?

Sure, but I was simply comparing my PL5 defaults with your image that used DxO's original defaults. I didn't explicitly lift the shadows, it's just what my preset does by default. Neither image replicates what the camera produced, and nor should you expect it to. I certainly aim to produce better images than OOC JPEGs, and almost always tweak the settings after my defaults have been applied, as I did here. Depending on whether I wanted the people to be seen, I would tweak it differently.

This is an illustration of how raw development isn't just an automatic conversion process, but one where you modify the appearance of the exported images, depending on what you want them to look like.

Mostly I believe we agree.

Usually I try a lot of different settings to get my RAW files to develop into something I want. Occasionally even some of the FP filmatic looks to give the photo the mode I want.

Yes, I must remember to try the FP film renderings more often. They're not part of my normal workflow, so I usually forget about them. I do use Leica M9 colour renderings for all my images, however (I'm not sure if that's a native PL feature, or only comes if you have FP)

Yes, it is giving us more picture than ANY other editor that has been tried in this thread.

I went to the DXO website to look for supported cameras/lenses, and when I searched for Lumix S5 with Sigma 14-24mm 2.8f DN it said 'no support'. So are you sure that is applying any lens correction at all? Because not applying lens correction would be a sure way to get the whole image back. I have been trying to find ways to switch it off in other apps!

This is the module it downloaded and installed

Is that not your lens?

Yes, that's it. I stand corrected.

Perhaps you have another detailed image with straight lines (eg, buildings or just a carefully shot, rectilinear picture of tiles) that we can check? Upload the OOC JPEG (and maybe one from another raw developer) and share the raw file.

No, but it's a good idea. I shall take one. Can't right now, I'm in the mountains and nothing has straight lines.

SilkyPix. The version they offer is out of date (8, current version 11) and pretty clunky.

There is a SilkyPix PRO 11 for Panasonic cameras only. Price is $30 Sales end at August 31.

Here is the link

Good luck

Make sure you shoot at 14mm, and see if you can get a shot with people near the edges. Low light would be good, too.
