Leica DNG files

Hi,

Just trying out the demo version of Photolab 4 on some DNG files from my Leica M240. All of them show as unsupported. Research indicates they should be good to go? I get the ? mark on the image.

Any ideas, something to do with being a trial version?

Thanks

Hello @andrewlow,

Leica M Typ240 is a supported camera. Could you, please, provide us with some images for the investigation? Please, upload them via upload.dxo.com with your forum name in the ‘support ticket number’ field and let us know when ready.

Thank you
Regards,
Svetlana G.

Hi,

I have uploaded three ages for you to test.m I’ve also noticed that there are PL4 files next to the .DNG files with .DOP extensions.

Nothing to do with PL4 being a demo is it?

Thanks

Hello @andrewlow,

Thank you for the images. But the images you provided are from Leica M8. This is what I see in ExifTool:

And we do not support M8 camera body.

Ahh! Of course, thanks for investigating.

kind regards

I’ve also got a Leica M8.2 which I know is un-supported, meaning I either convert the images to a giant TIFF file and edit in PhotoLab, or just edit in a different program, in this case DarkTable.

Since PhotoLab is able to edit the TIFF images, would it ever be possible to load the DNG images as-is, with none of the corrections DxO uses to correct camera or lens issues? Being able to edit the (imperfect) images at all would be preferable to having to use a different image editor - or create 80-meg TIFF images, which is impractical.

Maybe PhotoLab could open the M8 files, and display a message that this is an un-supported camera, and therefore there are no corrections for errors from the camera body or lens.

(While it’s true that I can use other cameras instead of my M8, it is important to me that I use a camera that can capture infrared, and in addition, the M8 is considered to be “the poor man’s Monochrom”, another camera that I can’t afford to buy. Or, “plan B” is to do some editing in DarkTable, and then export a full-size image in ‘jpg’ format which I can then open in PhotoLab.)
