Contax RAW Developer 201 for OS X

This morning I was browsing global.kyocera.com web site and found a new update for Contax RAW Developer that makes the software fully OS X compatible. It is a bit strange that this update is only available on a Japanese ND page and the installer has Japanese menus(somewhat reminds me of service in one local Japanese restaurant where best seats are always reserved for Japanese), but it installs correctly and transfers all files to the OS X Applications folder. Processing engine seems to be the same as before, so do not dream of shooting exposures of 1 sec and longer. The only bug that I have found so far is when you press "Open in Photoshop 7.0" button, this stupid thing launches Photoshop in Classic environment. The workaround is to develop TIFF files somewhere and then open them in Photoshop.

> Irakly, Thanks for the heads up on the OSX RAW developer!!!! If you open RAW dev. and go to the prefs....you can specify Photoshop 7 in 10 instead of PS 7 in Classic (which is the default)!!!!! Bert

I have read with great interest accounts here of a OS X raw developer for my ND but have not yet been able to access it. Or, you may know how to make OS 10.3 capable of using the my existing Ver. 2.0 and parameters.

However, I have not been using RAW because the output is very noisy compared to the in camera jpeg. Maybe there is something wrong with my equipment or setup but I've had the same terrible results with RAW 2.0 on OS 9 and 2.02 on OS X. The noise looks like it would be a 1600 speed shot compared to the camera's 400 speed jpeg. What results do you achieve with RAW?

Thanks for the link but I was unable to get more than a image of the installer. I will keep trying or you might have some suggestions.


I like using raw because I can work in 16 bit with all of the controls (hist. curves) after the fact. the noise goes away as i use the camera at ASA 25 or up to ASA 100. Though with Binuscan editing software in Auto RECO I can suppress the noise easily in the the high ASAs.

Here is the exact link for the download:

RDD_V202_X_Updater.sit.hqx

This should download immediately and it is between 8 and 9 megabytes.

I don't have a Mac, but the problem is the link text is getting scrambled by the board software. First off, it's stopping the link interpretation at the end of the last directory in the path, and omitting the file nale. You need to do a text selection from the right of the "hqx" all the way left past the http (easier that way to avoid the link selection), and copy, then paste it to the browser's address line.

Once I did that, I noticed there's a blank space between the / after "soft/" and the beginning of the file name "RDD_" which needs to be deleted. When I pasted to the browser it turned the space into its hex representation, "%20" which is what I deleted.

Once I did that I was able to get the download dialog box.

Hope this makes sense and helps,

OK, let's try turning off the Automatically Activate Links option and see if you can just copy this line to the address bar:

Another way is to highlight the address, press control c, highlight your browser address and press control v press enter it will go to the site and of course you can place it in your favorites file.
