Whenever a camera offers to write DNG files you should use that. DNG is an open standard and chances are much bigger that your files will be supported for a longer time in more programs. If your camera can't write DNG itself you should NOT convert your raw files to DNG after the fact, because the camera raw formats are not open, so the conversion step is most likely destroying some (meta) data. > Best regards, > Michael Tobias
