Zoom and GH5 files
« on: March 31, 2019, 09:20:33 AM »

GH5 raw files (RW2) don't show up at their native resolution in Photo Mechanic 6. The resolution should be 5208x3904 (20,33MP) but Photo Mechanic displays 1920x1440 in the header. So when you toggle the (Z)oom button to view zoomed and un-zoomed, Photo Mechanic 6 shows the file at 100% (that's fine) and then at 98% when un-zoomed. I never noticed this issue when using v5.

I have many cameras from various manufacturers (Sony, Fuji, Canon, etc.) and Photo Mechanic 6 handles them properly. I only have this issue with the GH5 files.

Attached are 2 screen captures: zoom & un-zoomed, so you can see the info in the headers.

Thanks for your help!

I expect that the embedded JPEG preview is small and that's what PM can show you.  PM does not directly render RAW files.
