Adobe DNG Converter is a capable application for Mac that helps you convert camera-specific files to a more common DNG raw format. This program might prove to be of good use whenever you wish to get rid of incompatibility issues between your digital photographs and image manipulation tools.
After you choose the input folder of pictures, you can configure the output settings according to your needs. The app lets you choose between various output profiles compatible with different releases of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, use lossy compression if necessary, etc.
This new release of Adobe DNG Converter provides you with support for various digital cameras, like Panasonic DMC-GH4, Samsung NX3000, Sony A7S (ILCE-7S), and many other.
The thing I don't like about Adobe DNG Converter is that it still doesn't allow you to load and convert individual files (this flaw could be found in previous versions as well). You have access to only one input method and that's to select entire folders of digital photos.
To sum things up, Adobe DNG Converter is a helpful program that offers you an easy way to convert your digital pictures to DNG raw format. The app brings various output configurations, provides you with the results in just a few moments, and doesn't come with a price tag.
