Updated Studio 2 to v2.2.0 and was checking it out. Thought I would compare it to Adobe Camera RAW to see if one produced better results than the other.
That’s when I noticed how Studio 2 was changing my Canon .CR2 files upon opening.
Here’s what I get from ACR
Here’s what it looks like in Studio 2.
I tried converting the files to DNG, with the same results.
With newer Canon RAW files (6D Mark II), there was an issue with a magenta cast on the images when opened. V 2.1.0 from October 2, 2019 says that was fixed. I wondered if they just cheated and filtered out a bunch of magenta when opening files. Nope. Here’s another comparison between Studio 2 and Window Explorer with a DNG file with less magenta. (Explorer Preview Pane resembles ACR).
So, wanting to cover all my bases, I went back to 2016 and opened a RAW file from my old Canon T3i. Surely that would work. Sadly, the answer is also, “No”.
I found the “Roadmap”, which is nice to share, but it says nothing about fixing RAW file support.
With some products, the “System Requirements” page will list supported file types. There is absolutely no information I can find where file support is spelled out for Studio 2.
So what’s going on with this? Is it known? Is it on the “to be fixed” radar?
