    Today On1 released a maintenance release of Photo RAW that included support for several new cameras. One of them is the Olympus E-M1 II that, like the E-M5 II, does a high resolution raw file. As of today Photo RAW is the only commercial raw converter that I know about that handles that file. My high files can not be opened in Lr, apps using Apple raw engine, or DxO Optics. DxO Optics does state the will support that file sometime in February.

    Macphun did a Luminar release today and I can now open the high res shot in Luminar......but not in Photos. So Macphun must be doing their own raw converters and not waiting on Apple. That is a wise move.

    Later they confirmed they are doing their own raw converters.

    High Res Raw support update

    In the past few days both Macphun and On1 had new product releases with raw converters that were supposed to handle not only the standard 20MP raw file, but also the 60MP high res raw file. I have been turning in trouble reports and working with the help desks of both companies. Both are having problems with the raw converters for the large high res files. And both ignore the raw ORI file created when you shoot the large ORF file.

    The good news is today DxO released their DxO OpticsPro 11.4.0.63 build which added support for several cameras, including E-M1 II. Using Optics I can now open the standard raw and jpg files....and......the large raw and jpg files.......and...the ORI raw file. I used a test large raw images and did some adjustments and exported the file as a linear DNG (note I said linear DNG not a raw DNG) and sent it to Luminar which opened it slowly...but without problem. So if you need proper support for your high res raw shots now, consider DxO Optics.

    Still no full support from either Apple or Adobe.

    Update on Photo RAW support for E-M1 II. Today high res large ORFs don't work. On1 has stated their next big release is mid April. They do not promise that the raw converter fix for E-M1 II high res will be in that release.

    Back to DxO Optics.
