Re: Happiness is.. a Pen F and a few small primes

OK, I sorted it out by reading the manual, and setting the camera correctly.

The LF+raw doesn't switch raw on with the Hi resolution mode. That is a different action.

Meanwhile, I also discover that Adobe DNG converter V10 handles the ORI special raw file so you can get your giant DNG (45Mb) without using Oly viewer 3.

I also discover that this process:

High res mode to raw to DNG, then light sharpen, down size from 80Mp to 20Mp (i.e. 50% of linear dimension) with more light sharpening then convert to JPG

results in a visibly sharper image than the native High res JPG.

Excellent. Now where's my tripod?

And having downloaded Oly viewer 3, I assume that is the only way to "develop" the big raw file.

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
