Universal RAW - does it exist?
Nowadays everyone is familiar with digital images. Professional photographers use their cameras' RAW format
, but now even some mid-range digital cameras offer a RAW format setting. Users are moving to RAW format to take creative control over their digital images. RAW files represent the pure, unaltered scene captured by the sensors of the camera. This file format is custom-created by each camera manufacturer and is different for each one. The solution to this problem is Digital Negative (DNG), a publicly available archival format for the raw files generated by different digital cameras. By addressing the lack of an open standard for the raw files created by individual camera models, DNG helps ensure that photographers will be able to access their files in the future. This format was established by Adobe in 2004 and opened up raw shooting to more people, more products, and more opportunities. ImageConverter Plus is proud to support the RAW files generated by most of the digital cameras. It definitely supports DNG if that's your preference. Whether or not one should use DNG for archival purposes is a matter of an individual preference, and with our software you can convert your DNG images into a variety of graphic formats
