Issue with Panasonic RW2 files

I just came across an issue with Panasonic RW2 files. When I open a RW2 from my Panasonic GX8 camera in Camera Raw, I get a picture that has 5184 x 3888 pixels. When I do the same in another Raw converter, the picture size is 5192 x 3896 pixels. The picture is definitely cropped at the edges. However, to me it looks like this cropping affects much more than 8 pixels in each direction. A really significant part of the picture is missing.

I found the same for an older version of RW2 from a Panasonic G3.

Tried to convert the RW2 to DNG before opening them, but it changes nothing.

To me, it looks like Camera Raw is not correctly processing RW2 and removing pixels that I need for further processing.

kind regards

Eggi

Re: Issue with Panasonic RW2 files

I'm wondering if Camera Raw is applying the Panasonic lens profiles automatically, even if this is not ticked in Camera Raw. This could lead to significant cropping.

As far as I know, the lens correction data is being integrated into the RAW file for Panasonic cameras and lenses. For Canon / Nikon etc. the correction data is taken from the Camera Raw database.

The RW2 file really shows much more details at the edges in Capture One / Raw Therapee than in Camera Raw. Definitely more than 8 pixels difference.
