Has RawVision problems to show your RAW format ? send us samples !

RawVision grew up with the help of its users who sent dozens of RAW samples so that our Development Team could add their support to the application.



Now, there is a very easy and convenient way to share your files with us. This is called DropItToMe, well actually DropYourRaw.
Browse to that url (the password is « raw »), click and select your file(s) and you’re done.


However, don’t forget to drop a little email just to know what your problems are.

And by the way, the user guide is (still) on his way, stay tuned !

RawVision problems to operate on SD cards

We have had reports from RawVision users having problems deleting from or exporting files to their SD cards.

After some investigation, we found out that the problem was (surprisingly) related to Android itself, and more precisely to Honeycomb.
And for the bad news, the problem ain’t just located to the SD card but it does affect the internal SD too (usually /sdcard/).

Many devices are suffering this problem including Samsung’s tablets running Honeycomb (Android 3.X).

The reason for it is that, for an unknown reason, Google changed the group permission to access those locations. It is a bit complicated for non-linux users, but let say that you need permission to read/write/execute files. And Honeycomb prevents apps from having those permissions.

In the case of Samsung, they circumvented the problem by adding special permissions in their own firmwares. Hence you users may think everything is working properly since the home made file browser is not affected by this issue. Using any other app like the excellent ES File explorer  would still fail to do the operations.

Anyway, our attemps to bypass the problem were unsuccessful. Users affected by the issue will have to wait for your Manufacturer to (finally) upgrade your devices to Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.X).

BlackBerry Playbook: PocketDOF pour les photographes

Avec l’arrivée du nouvel OS 2.0 de la Playbook, RIM s’offre une jolie opportunité logicielle en proposant un environnement compatible Android.

Pour ce faire, ils ont organisé un concours permettant aux développeurs de remporter un modèle dans le cas où une application parviendrait sur le store, l’App World.


PocketDOF profite donc de cette opportunité pour permettre aux photographes en Playbook d’effectuer leur calculs d’hyperfocale et de profondeurs de champs en toute circonstances. Et cela se passe ici.

RawVision profitera également d’un passage sur cette excellente tablette, un peu plus tard…
