HF ver 4.90.1 Issues...

Unread postby Bharat Shahane » 21.10.2008 05:29


I recently purchased 4.90. HF Pro stand alone version. I use it to convert RAW files from Canon 450D. I invariably shoot at 100 ASA.

Sometimes I make absolutely no corrrections at all to a RAW file; I simply convert it, as is, to a TIFF 16 bit image. Even so I notice the following:

[a] Considerable noise in the converted image when none appears to exist in the RAW file.
[b] A very significant colour shift. The reds tend to show up as coral pink.
[c] Highlights become muted as if they have been modified using Higlight/Shadow correction n Photoshop.

Can someone advise why this is so and what needs to be done to convert without losing original values?

Thank you!

Hello Bharat,

are you using HF at its default settings for RAW conversion?
I guess for Canon cameras you can now chose between three RAW conversion engines.
> Settings >> Preferences >> RAW

I assume when choosing"embedded converter", HF would use the original Canon conversion libraries.

Yes, you can use DCRAW, Adobe converter or cannon libraries for RAW development. I would appreciate if you tell us in which mode you have these problems.
