    I have several friends who are working on software products for the Micro 4/3 community. All kinds of products from smaller RAW app developers to custom color profiles for RAW apps to film emulation plugins for RAW apps.

    In order to develop software which is particularly suited to Micro 4/3 users, these developers need access to RAW files from a variety of Micro 4/3 cameras, and we can use your help!

    I'm hoping that our members who shoot RAW will contribute one RAW file to this thread. There's no way to prevent people from downloading it and violating your copyright with it, so don't contribute your masterpiece or really any file where you're worried about your copyright. It doesn't have to be the most artistic photo - just a photo with technically good quality (sharp, well exposed, etc).

    Here's how to do it:

    1) Start a reply to this thread and embed a small (max dimension 1024px) JPEG in the post so that we have a preview of what the RAW file will look like. If possible, include the EXIF info in the post (shutter speed, ISO, f-number, camera model, lens model)

    2) Before you click "Submit Reply" click on "Manage Attachments" and use that to upload your RAW file as an attachment to your message. Don't zip the file or convert to DNG, just use the original RAW file (the forum software is configured to allow large uploads with extension .ORF or .RW2). This may take a while on a slow internet connection.

    3) Click "Submit Reply".

    I increased everyone's attachment storage from 10MB to 25MB, which should give you enough attachment space to contribute a RAW file. If you find yourself running out of attachment space later, you can always use the attachment manager to delete select attachments, including the one you shared in this thread.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Thanks, Jeff. If I increase attachment storage enough for everyone to post two or three RAW files, it could eat up server space quickly, hence my request for just one RAW per member. I really appreciate the offer though!

    All: It's really not important that the RAW samples be as beautiful as the two submitted so far. The developers just need a bunch of RAW files from all different MFT cameras to try. The more samples they get, the better they can make software for us. A good example is Colin's Huelight plugin featured on the front page right now. Another example would be the VSCO software which currently supports our cameras but has special support for certain Canon and Nikon cameras. It takes hands on time with the files to give optimal support to our cameras.

    Didn't see, do they want any lens (including adapted ones) on a m4/3 body, or just native lens photos? Figure if I am going to upload, I can make sure it is useful first.
