    Does the setting in Menu->Rec->[Highlight Shadow] (manual page 132) affect RAW files (on GX7)?

    Thanks,

    Apparently not. When changing the highlight/shadow options in RAW, the resulting images look the same. Whereas in JPEG, the differences in the shadow and highlight areas in the resulting images are quite obvious.

    What if you set it and then open the RAW file in the Olympus RAW editor? Perhaps the RAW reader has to know how to handle that parameter?

    I used LR5 to open the Panasonic GX7's RW2 RAW files. The Olympus RAW editor (Viewer 2) doesn't recognize the Panasonic RAW files.
