I use raw decoding for a few months with default parameters but I try to use
16 bit color depth without result.
When digikam raw setup is configured as 8 bit color depth, I can open and
modify my raw images issued from my camera (pentax pef raw file or dng file)
without any problem. When raw setup is in 16 bit mode, the image appears with
a lot of grey points and a few colorized points (image is not usable).
I was not able to find information with digikam documentation and also with
The test I have performed are the following:
- with and without color management activated (and also with different icc
- with pef file and dng file
- by 'Tools/Raw image converter', I obtain an 8-bit color depth file (png)
whatever the color depth setting is.
- by 'Image/modify' function (F4), I obtain the grey image described above
- by "dcraw -o 0 -4 -T", I obtain a tiff image of 16 bit depth color from the
pef file (the image is dark but it's OK according to digikam documentation).
For information, I used digikam with official package from fedora 8, libraw
version is 0.6.1-release
Is there something I missed in the documentation or am I testing something not
yet implemented ?
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.S : please excuse my poor english.
