Leica DNG2NEF, need S2 files
« on: May 14, 2012, 06:46:59 PM »

Hi folks,

Time ago, I wrote a M9 DNG to Nikon NEF converter, see here,

http://bagnonm.blogspot.se/search/label/DNG2NEF

I have expanded this tool to also support the X1, M8, and now I'm working on the S2. For each Leica model, I need a NEF container with a similar or bigger resolution than the DNG file, and with the release of the D800, the latest Capture NX also allows to happily process S2 files.

The only S2 files I have been able to test are from firmware 1.0.0.9, taken from here, http://www.photographyblog.com/previews/leica_s2_photos, and I need to test recent firmware files.

Can you provide me with S2 files of the latest camera firmware? I do not need them to be nice pictures, just uncompressed DNG files.

Volunteers may want to try the following beta on such S2 DNG files. It is a Mac OS 10.7 64bit program, set the flag "Strict compat." to "No" to process your files,

Many thanks in advance,

So the point of this is to use Nikon Capture NX to process your pictures?

Yes, my workflow is based on Capture NX, and with it's integrated version management and non-destructive editing, not only I'm happy with it, but I have too many pictures that cannot be moved to, say LR, without either converting to TIFF, or maintain at RAW level but losing the edit and adjustments settings.

So, once I got a Leica M9, I decided to make its DNG to fit into my workflow, and it does pretty well, and then a few users of other Leica cameras have asked me to support their models. There is also a bit of entertainment in decoding these file formats and master their processing.
