Panny G3 RAW files not supported

I thought that I'd read somewhere that Panasonic G3 RAW files were supported by dcraw but that doesn't seem to be the case. The latest version of dcraw will not open the files claiming that the camera isn't supported.

How does one go about requesting support for this camera?



G3 is supported

Panasonic G3 definitely is supported. I opened a G3 Raw file with LightZone back at the beginning of January, in order to create the G3 Raw Tone Curve template.

Are you sure you've got the latest version of dcraw installed in the right place? Instructions for Mac are here:

If you run dcraw as a command-line file, it should tell you what version it is right at the top. You're looking for it to be version 9.12.

If you're still having trouble, email me the Raw file at doug (at) and I'll check it out. I'm running Windows, but that shouldn't make a difference.

My apologies

Sorry to have bothered you. It turned out to be a DFO (Dumb Frakkin' Operator) problem. I forgot to run chmod on dcraw before adding it to the Lightzone package contents.

Thanks for your help!

Glad to help

No problem. Glad it's working for you.
