> I see that the sensor orientation panel has been removed in 6.0 and that if you relaunch 5.6.6 it is also gone. Why?
I can assure you, it has not been removed. If the orientation sensor is activated, manual orientation setting is disabled. Thus the panel is not shown. If you want to set the orientation manually, you need to uncheck the usage of of the orientation sensor in the hardware setup.
> When you export out of 6.0, dng is not an option. It does capture dng but you can not export except to tif, jpg, png or psd.
> Only if you open the file and do a save can dng be an option. It does capture dng to where you designate the contact sheet to be.
That is the right behavior. DNG is a raw format. Export is used for "finished" image formats.
> If trying to export an .sti from 6.0 you can't export as dng. You have to open the file and then do a save as for dng to be an option.
For conversion of one raw image format to another you need to use the save as funktion. As written above, the export is only for the other formats.
> The dng saved from an .sti file will not open in camera raw. The error message is attached.
Camera Raw 188.8.131.52 is fine and should read the CaptureShop DNGs without problems. I am going to send you a PM.
