RICOH LENS A16 24-85 mm : About RAW images.

The RAW images are the files recorded as RAW data, that the camera captures but without any processing in the camera.
Generally, the camera captures an image and develop them with image processing, and compress to save as the JPEG format. On the other hand, when taking a picture with RAW, the camera save a DNG file, which is the RAW data that are not yet converted into JPEG. The DNG file is one of the RAW image file formats, which is designed by Adobe systems Inc. You can develop and edit these dng files in a computer with the application software that is compatible with the DNG file format.

For Windows, the Irodio Photo & Video Studio (from Pixela) comes with the package, which allows you to do some simple editing of a DNG file.
For Macintosh, no software comes with the package that you can edit a DNG file. Please use the application software that supports the DNG format.
