DNG files no EDIT possibilities

Postby Gmlens » Sun Dec 02, 2018 2:29 pm

I did received some files which are DNG, but my Capture one pro for Sony does not let me edit those, i can not even make them lighter.

How come DNG is just a raw file no?

To my understanding it is not that simple and there are several standards for dng. So the probably answer is "No".

DNG is not necessarily just a RAW file unless it is from a camera that uses the dng format for its RAW file standard of has been converted to dng from a raw file by a program that also embeds the RAW data required for 'seeing' the file as a RAW file.

Are you able to enquire about the provenance of the files from the provider?

I think that this will not work unless the DNG files came from a Sony camera.

Good point Ian.

I had not registered that important bit of information when reading the original post.
