Can't open .raw on lightroom SJCAM 8 PLUS
Yes, but sadly this time it's only Windows binary (previously they provided source code https://github.com/yanburman/sjcam_raw2dng/). I've already created ticket for this (35063).
I have the same problem. With the SJ7 Star I was able to develop the images and get good results. Now with the SJ8 Pro I am not able to get the colors right. As it is at this point it is unusable,
This app works great for SJ8 Plus (see the topic). The app gives wrong colors in highlight areas for SJ8 Pro. Possibly because the Plus and the Pro have slightly different bit order in raw files, or they have different color depth or they use different level of compression or there is jus a minor bug in the section of code, that handles those Pro files.
Thank you for the hint. I opened a new thread for the SJ8 Pro.
For those on macOS: try to search for RAW2DNG in Mac App Store - it is my new app to solve this problem for SJ8 Pro. I can add support for Plus if you send me some sample RAW files from it.
Here is a raw sample of the SJ8 Plus and corresponding jpg.
Thank you! I see this RAW is OK and it contains the same image as in JPEG, but I see strange thing: JPEG has 4032x3024 resolution while RAW only 4000x3000. This camera upscales image for JPEG?
Yep, they all do! That's one of the reasons, why jpgs are so low quality.
Not all, SJ8 Pro just crops 8 pixels from the bottom of RAW to make JPEG 4000x3000 instead of 3008.
I added profile for SJ8 Plus, you may try it! (and I made full version in-app upgrade free for 3 days)
I used the windows executable in ubuntu gnu linux with wine and it works perfectly.
