I'm trying to get DXO Optics Pro to work with my E-600, and struggling. It supports the E-620 and all my lenses, so I should be able to use it with the E-600 since the file formats are the same.

I tried editing the camera model in the EXIF to E-620 and that didn't work, so I was thinking if I had an E-620 file I could analyse the two and see where the differences are, and then maybe put together a utility to do this for me.

Ah yes, should've googled more first :)

If I can make a utility work I'll post it up for download.

I was trying to do the same with an E-P1 file as DXO only works with E-PL1s at the moment, also without much success.
Please keep up posted on how you get on.

Yes I've been very frustrated at not being able to use DxO Optics Pro with my e-600 files. The software seems to be very good at determining that files are from a supported camera/lens combination. I have concluded that it can either detect that the EXIF has been edited or that it reads the camera serial number which I believe contains a camera specific code. Good luck with your efforts to find a solution, there are quite a few members on here who have the same problem.

Peter and Molgrips(?)
Have you tried using the ExifTool application? You can change the exif data - I changed my E-600 camera name to the E-620 and found that that worked for Adobe Photoshop CS3/DNG as they don't recognise the E-600.
Here's a link to a previous thread on the subject.

Jamie - changing the EXIF alone doesn't work for DxO

Anyway - update: I've worked out how to edit the E-600 files to get them to work in DxO. You need to change some EXIF data but this alone is not enough - there's a camera specific code in there to that EXIF GUI won't let you change.

I'll make a program to do it and post it up on here, or if anyone wants to use a hex editor in the mean time search for S0030 in your E-600 file and change it to S0023, along with changing E-620 to E-600. Or is it S00030? The stuff is at home and I'm at work :)
