If this were the case the PEF and Pentax DNG from my K-r would not be identical in CO6

Thank you Paul,

it looks for me as there is no difference between proprietary RAW (like PEF) and DNG regarding the support (implementation effort) in C1. The fact that it is a new camera seems to require effort regardless of the file format.

What I do not understand with this, is the final benefit of DNG. In this case also compared to PEF, which is NOT created any longer in the K-30. With proprietary RAW or DNG format the end user always has to check carefully the raw converter software version and its supported camera models/files. And even with included support after upgrade the things (quality, ...) might change (improve, ...)?

It is like DOC format with various Winword version 1, 2, 6, 95, 97, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007 and 2010. I have some DOC files from 1990 which cannot be opened any longer in Word 2003! :( Hope this does never happen for "old" DNG files, where not only the camera model, but also the CameraRAW version or DNG version is relevant.

Regards, Joseph

I started again with Lightroom. With LR v4.2 the DNGs from K-30 are displayed correctly and even the Pentax lens 18-135WR and my K-30 color profiles are fully supported. Sorry, that is not my fault!
With PhaseOne I have now to wait for CaptureOne update v7.x, where "x" is the version which supports K-30 one day. And I also have to invest in a new system with 64 bit. My fault! :-)

Please reference the release notes. Only PEF files from Pentax Cameras are supported in Capture One and, unfortunately, the Pentax K-30 is not among the supported RAW files in Capture One 6.4.3 as it does not shoot the PEF RAW format.

I can open DNG files from K200D in Capture One without any problem with colours. It means that Capture One supports K200's DNG files.

Has there been any more updates about this?

Found a more streamlined option?
