Monochrome2DNG Beta 0.9.2

What's New in Monochrome2DNG Beta 0.9.2

  • This Beta adds crop options:
  • Crop mode
  • Some converters and stacking applications ignore standard soft crop tags, thus "Save cropped area only" option is added.
  • Crop margins
  • Helpful if some unusable areas are left in the corners or close to the edges of the sensor; CFA is only partially removed there, for example.

Monochrome2DNG, Beta 0.8: File Converter for «Monochrome-Converted» Cameras

Almost all digital cameras that are released today are color cameras. Nevertheless, there is demand for BW (Black and White) cameras because of reduced artifacts and higher resolution of resulting images. And many photographers want BW cameras with the same lens mount as their main (color) camera, so that they can use the lenses they already own.

Converting a color camera to BW is done by removing the CFA (Color Filter array). However, during such conversion, the firmware of the camera doesn’t change, and the camera doesn’t know that it’s become monochrome, which leads to several problems, which Monochrome2DNG - a file converter for «monochrome-converted» cameras - is going to address.
