  (in 64-bit version of Windows, and in regular (not Legacy) version for macOS)

FastRawViewer 1.7: New View Mode, "without Beautifications"

By default when displaying RAW FastRawViewer applies S-shaped tone curve and Adobe compatible' midtone correction.

With these (default) settings, the RAW display becomes more or less "as expected", correlating to the embedded JPEG and standard Adobe rendition (with all sliders in default positions) in both contrast and brightness.

In FastRawViewer 1.7 we've implemented a quick way to turn of both of these settings and switch between a flat, non-contrasty look, which corresponds to what the camera records into the RAW much more accurately, and a regular view.

DPRSplit Beta 0.9 beta: Canon EOS R5 support

In this version of DPRSplit we've added initial support for Canon EOS R5 camera:

  • tested only on very limited samples set
  • EXIF/Makernotes data records are not stored into output DNGs (metadata format is very different in CR3 files, so not directly mappable into DNG files).
