Version 1.2.27 Changes (2019-05-18)

Camera support

  • Canon EOS 250D
  • Panasonic S1, S1R, G90/95, FZ1000-II,

Panasonic S1R HighRes mode notes:

  • Default RawDigger limit for RGB rendering is 120Mpix, while S1R HighRes images are larger
    (almost 190Mpix). To display RGB rendering, please increase the limit value in
    Preferences: Display Options - Disable RGB Rendering.... limit (you'll need at least
    3GB of free RAM for RawDigger process)
  • GUI toolkit we use for RawDigger is unable to display images larger than 16383 pixels
    in any dimension, while S1R HighRes images are slightly larger (16767 pix wide image area,
    16776 pix full sensor area).
    Thus we temporarily limit RawDigger display/export ability to 16383 pixels only.
    We'll address this issue in next intermediate update (version 1.3.0).

    • Pentax K-3 II 4-shot mode:
      • new setting Data Processing - Vendor specific - Pentax K3-II - Merge data for 4-shot frames to merge 4 shots into one 4-channel (with 2 green channels)
  • Support for DNG files containing floating point data:
    • Only compressed files (deflate) are supported for now, we have no samples of uncompressed files.  If you have any floating point DNG files that are not currently supported by RawDigger please send us some samples.
    • Both Bayer-type and linear DNG (3 color channels) files are supported
    • Files containing 16-, 24-, and 32-bit floating point data are supported.
    • As the source floating point data may be normalized in different ways (i.e., 0-1. or 0-1000000, or to some other range), while in RawDigger the histogram and statistics are in 16-bit integers, upon the opening of a raw file containing floating point raw data the program performs a conversion to integer values, applying a re-normalization to a different range if necessary.

      The conversion is controlled through the following settings:

      Preferences - Data Processing - Floating point data normalization group:

        For data maximum below AAAA or above BBBB

        Scale data range to CCC

      The meaning of the settings is as following:

         if the actual data range _or_ the value of the maximum in the DNG file are out of the range АААА-BBBB

         then all the data numbers (pixel values) will be multiplied by the same coefficient, to make the actual maximum equal to CCCC

      If the data numbers were scaled as noted above, the multiplier will be displayed on the bottom bar, like this: 'FP data normalized: 1.23456' (it means that all the data numbers were multiplied by 1.23456)

    Empty histogram windows for non-existing channels are not displayed now.
  • additional settings to control the display of 4-channel histograms for Bayer RGBG raw data (Preferences - 'Histograms' - "Histogram for RGBG bayer images"):
    • Display G1 and G2 - to display 4 histograms
    • G1 only - to display 3 histograms, using R, G1, and B channel data
    • Average G1 and G2 - to display 3 histograms, using R channel data, averaged G1 and G2 data, and B channel data:
      • histogram bins are averaged between G1 and G2 channels
      • Channel statistics:
        • Min/Max - minimum and maximum values, correspondingly
        • Values (number of repeating values) - maximum between the channels
        • Pixels - average between the channels
  • New option for vertical scaling, Square root; resulting histogram is less spiky compared to linear scaling, but less flat compared to logarithmic scaling.
  • In addition to checkboxes, active regions to control histogram display now include the mode labels too, so the modes can be switched also by clicking on the labels themselves.
  • New Histograms tab in Preferences:
    • moved setting: Histogram Scale setting (moved from Display tab)
    • moved setting: Remember scale ranges (formerly Remember last used Histogram settings on the Misc tab)
  • new setting: Set histogram EV0 by with 2 choices:
    • Current frame data: EV0 will be set 3 stops below the maximum for the current frame rounded up to the next power of two
    • Camera data range: EV0 will be set relative to the theoretical maximum for the camera rounded up to the next power of two; this setting is meant to facilitate the comparison of underexposed and normally exposed frames from the same camera, because now the maximum and EV0 value do not depend on the exposure.
  • EV grid step controls are available when automatic selection of EV0 is turned on.
  • A bug causing the parameters of the vertical axis of the histogram not to be always properly restored in Remember scale ranges mode is fixed.
  • Minimum bin size for autoscaling of X axis of histogram in EV-scale mode is set to 1/48 EV.
  • Support (non-automatic) for display of histograms on HiDPI (Retina) monitors. The option is switched on manually with the help of the following settings:
    • HiDPI histogram window mode (for HiDPI screens) - doubles the resolution for the histogram window
    • High resolution histogram PNG export - to double the size of the histogram image when exporting to PNG format, effectively doubling the resolution of the output.
  • (Windows only) The setting Histogram windows always on top of main window - switches on the mode when the histogram windows are displayed on top of the main program window. If this mode is on, histogram windows are not displayed as separate in the taskbar.
  • New setting Additional data in histogram title bar to select the data to be displayed on the title bar of the histogram window. Chices include "exposure" data (shutter speed, aperture, ISO speed), camera model, both, or none.
  • Histogram settings (axes ranges, type of vertical scaling) are memorized also when closing the histogram window, not only when those settings are changed. Thus, the settings for the last closed histogram window will be active upon opening a new histogram window.
  • Bug fixed: for OS X, horizontal grid divisions were not displayed

Minor changes

  • In certain cases, faster program start.
  • Misc - Remember OvExp/UnExp checkbox settings is now moved to Over/Under Exposure tab.

  • Settings related to specific data formats or manufacturers only (that is, Sony ARW2, Panasonic, PhaseOne, Sigma dp2 Quattro, Canon/Nikon sRAW/Small RAW), have been moved to the "Vendor Specific" subsection within the Data Processing settings section. Settings affecting all cameras/data formats remain in the main "Data Processing" section.

  • Sigma dp2 Quattro support:

    The following settings in the "Data Processing -> Vendor Specific" Preferences subsection have been added:

    • R and G channels interpolation - turns on the duplication of pixels in the R and G channels to form a 2x2 square
    • Low sensitivity pixel interpolation - turns on the normalization of pixels with lower sensitivity found in the R and G channels (in the dp2 Quattro camera, every 64th pixel in the R and G channels has a sensitivity lowered by about 2 stops. What these pixels are used for is currently not certain, possibly for exposure control in overexposed areas).

  • Histogram
    • the bug on rare occasions causing the histogram to appear unopulated upon the change of the size of the histogram window is resolved
    • the labels on horizontal axis are continued all the way to the right instead of reaching only to the maximum of the range settings on top of histogram window

    • To extract unprocessed YCC data, switch on

      Show YCbCr data for Canon/Nikon sRAW files in Preferences - Data Processing.
    • To disable Cb/Cr interpolation, switch on "Do not interpolate Cb/Cr channels data (Canon/Nikon sRAW)" in Preferences - Data Processing.
    • In RGB-mode ("Show YCbCr…" setting is off) the image is rendered from luma and color-difference data:

      * linearized

      * chromaticities are close to sRGB so no additional color transformations are performed.
  • LibRaw updated:
    • support for DNG files that originate from Fuji X-Trans RAFs
    • support for DNG files that include tonal (linearization) curves with more than 4096 entries.
  • Problems fixed: Qt 4.8.5 has a feature that prevents from building a single distribution, compatible with all current Mac OS X versions in 32- and 64-bit modes. Starting from RawDigger 1.0.6 we will be offering two distributions for Mac OS X:
    • Main distribution: Universal binary 32/64 bits which is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 to 10.9 in 64-bit mode, and with Mac OS X 10.8 to 10.9 in 32-bit mode
    • Legacy 32-bit version compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 to 10.9 but without support for Retina display.

Version 1.0.5 changes

New Features

  • New Sony processing mode

    Preferences - Data Processing - Sony ARW2 processing options - Delta step relative to value

    This mode is to display the ratio of the minimum delta step to the pixel value. For those image areas where this ratio is large and the contrasty details do not exist (like it is in the sky) the normally processed image may exhibit visible posterization. The values are displayed in per mil (a tenth of percent, or one per thousand).
    • Additional setting

      Ignore shadows below level NN

      Delta step relative to value mode necessarily highlights all the shadow areas in the image because the minimum step in raw for shadows is relatively large - with minimum step value of 2 for the pixel value of 64 the step is equal to 3%. This setting allows to switch off that (usually unnecessary) shadow highlighting.
  • Support for .EIP CaptureOne files
  • Exiftool updated to 9.54
  • LibRaw updated:

    Support for Fujifilm S1 and Nikon D4s (small size NEFs are currently not supported)
  • New sorting for RAW extensions in Open file dialogue, old and uncommon file extensions are now in the end of the list.

    This is to get around of the limitations imposed by older versions of Windows that impose a limit on the length of the extension list.

    User-defined extensions are now placed at the head of the list instead of appending to the tail.

Bugs fixed

  • Libraw updated: shutter speed for Sigma SD9 and SD10 cameras is now displayed correctly.
  • Incompatibilities with activating RawDigger when running both 32- and 64- bit versions of the program in Windows 64-bit environment are fixed.

Version 1.0.4 changes

  • LibRaw updated:

    Corrected black level setting for 12-bit NEF files for Nikon cameras that are using non-zero black levels (currently D3300 and D5300)

  • Exiftool updated to version 9.50

Version 1.0.3 changes

  • New setting

    Preferences - Data Processing - Sony ARW2 processing options

    Applies only to processing of Sony cRAW format Settings:
    • None (standard processing) - standard processing
    • Only base pixels - In each 16-byte block, only pixels that have exact values are unpacked. The values of other pixels are set to zero.
    • Only delta pixels - In each 16-byte block, only the pixels that are coded as deltas from the minimum value in the block are unpacked. The base value (minimum in the block) is added to the result.
    • Delta pixels relative to zero - same as above but the base value is not added. This mode helps to locate compression artifacts.
  • New setting

    Preferences - Overexposure detection - Auto - Auto OE Offset

    This setting allows to offset the automatically detected value of overexposure. It can be set in the range of -8 to +1 EV. Can be used to determine which areas of the raw data will be blown out if the exposure is increased (negative OE Offset values correspond to exposure increase!).

    If Underexposure Detection is set to 'Offset from Saturation' OE Offset shifts the underexposure detection margin accordingly, allowing to predict the underexposed areas for the new exposure setting.
  • New setting

    Preferences - Overexposure detection - Auto - Sensitivity - Full Well limited camera

    Turns on the new method to detect OE, useful for the cases where the output is limited not by ADC but by the full well (or close to full well). The method locates the "fuzzy hump" in highlights which is specific for full-well limited raw data processing. Some cameras at certain ISO settings (base ISO or lower than base ISO) exhibit this type of behavior (one of the examples is Panasonic GX7 at ISO 125 setting)
  • Setting deleted: Sony ARW2 Hack.
  • Exiftool updated to 9.49
  • LibRaw updated, new cameras added:

    cellular phones: Alcatel 5035D, Nokia 1600x1200, DJI 4438x3288, Matrix 4608x3288

    Canon PowerShot A3300 IS (CHDK hack)

    Fujifilm F900EXR and X-T1

    Leica X2

    Nikon D3300 (preliminary support, no data to compute color transform for RGB rendering yet)

    Olympus E-PL6 and E-M10

    Panasonic FZ7,FX70 and TZ60/61

    PhaseOne IQ250

    Sony ILCE-5000 (preliminary support, no data to compute color transform for RGB rendering yet)
  • Bugs fixed: in one rare case the histogram maximum was calculated incorrectly.

Version 1.0.2 changes

  • To allow users to activate RawDigger in both trial and fully licensed modes without direct Internet access, manual activation mode is added.
  • Camera support: Nikon Df color data were copied to D4 (the Df device data is better, and the CFAs are practically identical).
  • Bug fix: There used to be a possibility of the program crashing while opening new files in a very rapid succession because the new file was opened before exiftool was finished processing the previous one.
  • Exiftool is updated to version 9.44

Version 1.0.1 changes

  • Export to TIFF: option ‘Copy EXIF tags from RAW file’
    • for RGB rendering the output files are tagged with sRGB color space
    • for all other modes of export the output files are untagged; you may need to assign the proper color space on import to a graphics editor program
  • ‘Selection by numbers’ dialog
    • ‘Center selection on image’ checkbox is added to the dialogue; if the checkmark is set, the center of selection is aligned to the center of the image
    • For OS X the dialogue is adjusted so that the wording is not truncated
  • Processing of registration information is improved:
    • On license key input all extra characters (spaces, tabulation marks, etc) are ignored. Also, lowercase letters are automatically replaced with uppercase ones
    • The key is checked at input, if they key does not pass the sanity check, a warning is issued
  • Camera support
    • The size of the image area for Nikon Df camera is adjusted
    • Correct RGB rendering for Fujifilm cameras X-E2 and XQ1
    • Correct parameters of Bayer Pattern for Canon A3300 (CHDK)
  • Exiftool is updated to version 9.43

Version 1.0.0 Changes

Licensing changes

RawDigger is Shareware now. You can use it free of charge during 30 days trial period. To continue using RawDigger after the end of the trial period please purchase the License.

RawDigger can be licensed as one of three Editions that differ in functionality and price:

  • Exposure Edition for everyday use: it displays RAW data in all modes (RGB, RAW Composite, and RAW per channel), indicates over- and underexposed areas, displays of RAW histogram, image statistics, statistics and histogram for selected area.
  • Research Edition is intended for camera/sensor evaluation (personal use and for preparing reviews, as well as to help with programming RAW data processing); it includes all the functionality of the Exposure Edition and adds TIFF export, multiple selected areas via Samples, tables of sampled data; statistics and histograms over multiple samples, exporting sampled data as CSV and CGATS.
  • Profile Edition helps to create sensor calibration data, linearization data, or device data for color profiling. It adds selection grids for faster processing of step wedges and color targets, as well as for calculating non-uniformity maps. Profile Edition allows to apply white balance, normalization, equalization (Flat Field), and filtering of outlying values before data export.

See Compare Editions table for details.
