Publisher's Description of Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) Converter

" Easily convert camera-specific raw files from over 300 supported cameras to a more universal DNG raw file. "
- From Adobe Systems

What is a Digital Negative (DNG)?
Digital Negative was developed to address the lack of an open standard for the proprietary and unique raw files created by each digital camera. DNG allows photographers to archive their raw camera files in a single format for easy cataloging and access in the future. With the format specification freely available, any developer can build software that supports and takes advantage of DNG.

What is the Adobe (DNG) Converter?
The Adobe DNG Converter, a free utility that converts files from more than 300 cameras to DNG, enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files to a more universal DNG raw file.

What is a “raw” file?
A raw file contains the ―raw‖ data captured by the digital camera sensor before it has been converted to JPEG or TIFF. Cameras that create JPEG or TIFF files process (and in the case of JPEG files, compress) the sensor data. When working with raw files, the file is not compressed or processed in the camera—instead, our software gives the user complete control over the conversion settings.

Why convert to DNG files?
Unlike most manufacturer-specific raw formats, the Digital Negative is an openly published specification that not only is supported by Adobe, but is also freely available for other software and hardware vendors to support. Consequently, it can be a safer file format to use for long-term archival purposes. Archiving your file as a digital negative eliminates worries that the raw file will no longer be readable once the camera that created it becomes obsolete.

The Digital Negative specification allows for not only all of the pixel information stored in current raw formats, but also for all of the additional, proprietary metadata that many manufacturers include. The Adobe DNG Converter may in some cases ignore some of this proprietary metadata, and only include the basic information necessary for creating a high-quality image file. The original raw file, however, can also be embedded in the new DNG format to ensure proprietary metadata from the manufacturer is not lost.
