any chance to get DCRAW updated for IDI 5?

Post by fbungarz » 25 Apr 13 5:32

Dear Hert,
Yes, I am still using IDI and would like to continue doing so even if I buy a new camera...
Michel wrote in a post while back that this is not an issue with the Nikon D800 http://forum.idimager.com/viewtopic.php ... 800#p97922:
Luckily my D800 is supported and I am not planning on getting a new camera soon :wink:
However, I know from conversations with him that he later discovered his D800 files were too large for IDI to properly generate previews. He also suggested:
Though, maybe Hert is willing to update the DCRAW bib from time to time, but my guess would be...
Is there any chance this might happen?
Probably not just as easy as COPY-PASTE of" dcraw.dll" into C:\Program Files (x86)\IDimager Products\IDimager\Tools\raw ??? And since there is no "dcraw.dll" on http://www.cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/ ...
I know, you said IDI would not cease to function just because it is discontinued, but without DCRAW ever so often updated and constantly new releases of new camera models, this IS actually now going to happen: IDI will cease to function with most new models on the market...
This is not just a problem with the D800 (36 megapixels), but likely affects other models like the new D7100 (24 megapixels)...

:(

I would really MUCH appreciate if DCRAW would be updated ever so often...

Thanks,
Frank

The version on the server http://www.idimager.com/support/draw.dll is the last version usable with IDI.

Hi Hert,
thanks. I assume I can copy/paste that DLL into the relevant folder to ensure IDI works with the D800? That would be fantastic ;-)
I just tried the link, however, and get a "page not found" error.
Hmmmm,
Frank

Thanks Michael, that one worked.
Out of interest: does this one work better with your D800?

I don't think so - but I can't tell you for sure, because I do not have IDI 5 installed anymore...
