Darktable

Just been looking at a good raw photo editing package called Darktable

I’m toying with idea of getting a Ricoh GRD IV camera as a handy, easy to carry camera, with a 28mm equivalent prime lens.

I’ve been shooting film for the last year since selling my D700, but it would be handy to have a decent digital again, but I thought it would be best to check out the photo software on Ubuntu and test it with some sample DNG raws from the GRD IV from http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/ricoh_gr_digital_iv_review/sample_images/

I have added the “stable” release PPA

ppa:pmjdebruijn/darktable-release

which has allowed me to update to version 1.1.4 as the release in the ubuntu software centre was older and more basic, but this new one is much more like lightroom
