Vuescan and Pentax RAW

    A good man named George just told the PDML:

    I got an email from Ed Hamrick this morning. He's incorporated the latest
    dcraw code into Vuescan and it now reads Pentax Raw files.

    I spent about 20 minutes playing with it and it seems to work fine. I only
    had one obvious problem. In the "open file" dialog box, the "pef"
    extension isn't in the file type pull down list, so you have to type it
    yourself on the "filename" line. As quick as Ed turns things around, I'm
    sure this will be fixed soon.

    This is by no means a review, as I said, I only played with it for a few
    minutes. I can say this, it's another option for file conversion and it
    seems to work fine. After conversion I opened the files in Picture Window
    Pro and did additional color correction and sharpening. My first
    impression is that I have a lot more control over the process and the final
    result on the ONE SHORT TEST turned out well.

    No final option here, I have a lot of experimenting to do.
