I am taking RAW pictures with a DZ2 and notice there is a lot of black space around the picture. Why is that, and is there a way to occupy that black space with the actual photograph?

Thanks in advance...

Peter

Steve, possibly it's the DiMAGE Z2, a discontinued model.

Hi

I guess you're using raw2nef to make a NEF file from the .JPG -RAW from the camera. If this is the case, all that black space comes from the compatibility option with E5700/E8700 (with more than 4 MP), just unchek that option in the raw2nef setup and you'll get your 4 MP NEF-images which can be opened with Nikon Capture or other program (IrfanView).

But if you use Adobe Camera Raw to read the NEF files then you need that compatibility (and also that black space) in order to be able to read the files.

In my personal page (in spanish...) you can find some info anda samples, hope will help you: http://usuarios.lycos.es/mato34foto/...raw/raw_z2.htm
