    A couple of months ago, I purchased an Olympus Air. I had the lens from an old EPL-1 so I just got the body. I like to shoot raw, but the mac doesn't support the Air yet. Even the DxO Optics doesn't support it yet. What are people using to convert the raw files? The Olympus software is ok, but I hope to find something better.

    Hi,
    I don't have an Air, so I can't be sure, but have you tried RawTherapee or DarkTable? (both are free/open-source)

    You may be able to forge exif data to trick dxo into supporting it. I doubt the files are different from a epl7 for example

    Thanks, will try those, I always like the concept of open-source.

    You could download the ICC profile for the E-M5 from here:

    https://www.lenscraft.co.uk/members-area/camera-profiles/

    and try some program that accepts it. RawTherapee does, in the colour management section. Then you have to work on the tone curve finding a good "S curve" to bring back some contrast and saturation.

    I used the small jpeg preview in this RAW file as a reference:

    Digital Cameras, Olympus AIR Digital Camera Test Image

    Modifying the "Model" EXIF header, with something like this for example, should work.


    EDIT: profiles on that sites are in dcp format. Here there are two converted to ICC.
