Support for Samsung GX-10 (Pentax K10D twin) RAW

I realize that you receive a lot of requests to add modules for lens and camera combinations and you prioritize additions based on popularity. My request is a bit different though. I am a happy user of Photolab processing pictures from my Pentax K-70 and older K20D. However, recently I wanted go through a some older pictures taken with Samsung GX-10 DSLR camera, only to see that the RAW format from that camera is not supported.

I realize that you can not support every single camera and keep up with the development in the field. However, Samsung GX-10 is a twin of Pentax K10D, which is supported in DxO Photolab, using both DNG and PEF format. The Samsung is able to produce only DNG files, which should be pretty much the same as the ones from Pentax.

DXO Photolab also supports the slightly newer twins Pentax K20D and Samsung GX-20, so you can already quickly check what are the differences between the DNG files from the same Pentax and Samsung cameras.

I have obviously tried submitting the request for a module and also a support request, but these follow a defined process, so I have of course learned nothing new.

Could you please check the differences between supported Pentax and Samsung cameras? My guess is there shouldn’t be much difference and that would mean that adding the support for GX-10 should be a tiny item.

Hello @maui-eu,

Welcome to DxO forum :slight_smile:

From time to time, when we can, we add support for some old cameras. I’ll have a look to the GX10, if it is really a twin of the K10D we should be able to support it somewhere in 2021.
Note: we will if we can find RAW images for tests, but I might get back to you for that.

Regards,
Marie

Thank you @Marie, I really appreciate it! Of course, if I can help in any way, please let me know!

Hi Marie, I’ve just read and discovered that for adding a new camera support, it’s just as simple to send you a raw file ? Could you please explain us what you are expected exactly from us (wich parameters, light conditions, etc…)
It would be nice to make a dedicated page for this, we are a lot here asking for supporting our cameras and PL4 is still not offering what do other competitors and it’s a pitty for this strong raw processor software. It’s surely a lot of work but it’s worth it to give it its rightful place.

For sure regarding this thread, I created a list for wishing support of unsupported raw here Wish list to support old raw files by DXO #photo archive matter and don’t forget to vote by clicking on the button “Vote” below the title.

Hello @Marie, I wanted to check if there is any news or any plans to add the support for the GX-10. As mentioned above, it is a twin of the Pentax K10D which Photolab supports fully. It should be the same sensor and the same processor. The DNG files should differ marginally. Please let me know if any help is needed.
