Panasonic RW2 files

Post by bbones » Fri Sep 09, 2016 4:06 pm

I have a SD card with some images on, however they are in the Panasonic RW2 format and other than in IRIS I'm unable to open them.

The Panasonic Software / Codec will not run under Windows 10 nor XP .....

Does anyone know of a program I can use to convert them into JPEGs

I have raised a ticket with Panasonic but not hopeful of a positive response?

Cheers

Bill

How about IrfanView (I spotted last night that Keith already has it on his laptop):

Or Dave Coffin's DCRAW is the master of digital format decoding (I think that the IRIS decoder is his):

and UFRAW is a Windows implementation:
