Hi Digikam Developers,

Its nice to hear that all image editor plug-ins have been ported to support 16 
bit images!
Regarding to this:
My camera's (Canon 350D) output can be two different file types. Either an 8 bit 
JPG or a 12 bit RAW. How can I efficiently use digikam's 16 bit support? Using 
the built-in dcraw RAW converter? What will this conversion do with the 12 bit 
RAW images? Will it convert them into 16 bit data with some extrapolation?

By the way: is there any camera on the market that supports _real_ 16 bit images 
   (real means the A/D conversion and all the signal processing is done on 16 
bits inside the camera) ?
