M8raw2dng - Tool to convert Leica M8 RAW files to DNG

Recommended Posts

Which longest times can be used in "JPG Fine + RAW"-mode, until one will notice on the display an image number as "L1039237.BIA", but no image will be seen?

How do you open a ".BIA" file?
Last night this error occurred at times longer than 1/12 second.
Today when trying to repeat this error, it startet at times of 1/4 second or longer.
In both cases the battery was about half full.

The ".BIA" file is a measurement made by the camera and used for noise reduction. If you want to see it, rename it as a ".RAW" file so that M8RAW2DNG processes it into a DNG. It is a "Dark Frame" exposure that the camera uses for a non-uniformity correction. For most purposes, it just slows down write time for raw mode as M8RAW2DNG has a separate "-SD" switch for non-uniformity correction. Arvid did an incredible job with NUC when you use "-SD" to generate the correction and '-s' to apply it.

Dear all,

 

I'm just start to use it and try to follow this topic guide in the website, I'm used 3-4 days for learn and try to apply on my M8 files,

Now My M8 had the problem about the 2 vertical lines in every ISO at 2661,196 2661,2623 and more one lines is 3464,667 3464,2620.

and now after I follow the "Tool + Droplet installation" and completed droplet RAW+JPD action and show new DNG file already.

 

and now I want to fix the thing in this list :
1. need output files in 14 bit
2. fix the 2 lines vertical
3. darkfield correction.

 

Please you show me the command I must to type in line set Params?

Thank you so much

Hope this helps a little bit.
But handling wasn't easy, even when Arvid, as the programmer, still supported it.
I'm glad that I got rid of the annoying button dance.

I never came to grips with getting the blasted thing to work. I guess I am a computer idiot. To make it work for dunderheads like me it needed a proper installer and  GUI "front end" to be built so it was more plug and play - install the software in a directory and then just run it by clicking when you need it like any other program short cut on a computer desktop. To make matters worse the pushing of a special sequence of buttons on the M8 necessary after  the camera was turned off then on again was tiresome and galling. This could not be helped unless someone managed to hack the firmware but no one ever did. I kept hoping!

So I forgot about it. A great idea but compromised by having it in a package that was ungainly and for some like me totally unusable. What is a "droplet" anyway? A small drip perhaps! And how on earth do you get the proper syntax for the command line to run the program when installing it. I must have tried 20 times with different combinations of words and letters.

Does anyone actually have the whole zip for download?  The link above only contains the droplet...but I need the actual *app*.  

Any links appreciated.

Best regards,

Mark

      First time post, be gentle. 
      I want to bring my raw files from Monochrom into silver efex. SEP. But it will only accept RGB. Will this lead to loss of quality ? When I scan my black and white negs I do so in greyscale and that’s  perfect for printing to black and white paper at Metro. 
      It seems to defeat the object of the Monochrom if I have to convert to RGB ?
      Am I missing a trick ? What say you ?

      What is the benefit to shooting JPEG and RAW?
      I am starting to get overwhelmed by having doubles of all pictures, not to mention the additional space requirement.
       
      Does anyone shoot only JPEG? Why?
      Does anyone shoot only RAW? Why?
      Thanks!

      I just firgure out that my Leica M10, the DNG files opened and exported to JPG by photoshop are always brighter and less contrast than the original JPG generated by M10 body.
      Is there something wrong?
      This is the jpg exported from dng.

      Ich habe RAW-Dateien aus der D-Lux 7 mit dem Adobe-DNG-Converter in DNG-Dateien umgewandelt und dann in Lightroom 6 importiert. Dort werden die Dateien ganz kurz in Farbe dargestellt, dann allerdings dauerhaft nur in SW. Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die RAW-Dateien in LR6 als Farbbilder zu importieren, ohne auf das aktuelle LR-Abo umsteigen zu müssen?
