DigiKam has a new tool to convert RAW camera files to DNG...

Yes! a DNG converter for Linux... For a long time, many people asked me to implement a RAW camera image converter to Digital NeGative (DNG).

After few weeks of studying the DNG SDK code to learn the API and the code from this little application dedicated to convert Canon Powershoot RAW files to DNG, I have finally found the way to write the first RAW to DNG converter for Linux, which support a lots of major RAW camera formats, as NEF, CR2, MRW, PAF, etc...

A DNG codec has been written around the DNG SDK and a command line tool to perform unit-tests. After a lots of conversions tests using official Adobe DNG converter and my program, a new kipi-plugin is born... See below for a screenshot of this tool in action...

Itty bitty ARM module starts at $27

Variscite’s rugged, 50 x 25mm “DART-6UL” COM runs Linux on an i.MX6 UltraLite SoC, offers NAND, eMMC, and wireless, and starts at $27 in volume. In April, Variscite announced the world’s smallest i.MX6 computer-on-module with its 50 x 20mm, Freescale i.MX6-based DART-MX6. At 50 x 25mm, the DART-6UL doesn’t quite match those dimensions, but it offers greater power efficiency, making it well suited for IoT applications and battery-powered devices. Variscite claims it consumes only 5mA in suspend mode. Read more
