Why convert?
on Jul 6, 2012 at 3:27:21 pm

I have always converted my raw .cr2 stills from the 5Dmii to .dng before bringing into RAW / PHOTOSHOP. Just the way I was taught but I don't think I learned (or retained) why.

It seems as though RAW and PHOTOSHOP will indeed work with .CR2, though.

But I know there is probably a reason why its best to work in .DNG, but I can't find it....

So does anyone know why it's almost always done this way?

.cr2 and .dng are both raw formats - no need to convert.
