PM Won't Display DNG Files From Leica M8?
« on: February 15, 2007, 07:05:28 PM »
I 'test drove' a Leica M8 in Dallas a couple of days ago.  I took about 20 or so images on an SD card; when I got home I loaded them onto a new  directory on my desktop and attempted to view them in PM.  No luck.

I understand these are DNG files.

Will PM 4.4.3.3 not read them?

That's correct.  PM 4.5 when it becomes available, will read and display them.

Cotton,

OK - I've found the problem and fixed it for 4.5.1.

But PM will only show a small 310x206 thumbnail since Leica doesn't include any JPEG preview.
