Sunset with the RX10IV: AuroraHDR 2018 and Adobe Camera raw.

Adobe has just released an update to camera raw so now it is possible to open the RX10IV raw files. Previously it was only AuroraHDR 2018 that would read them, but this did give me strange lens fault: edges of the sensor and all that unwanted stuff.

I didn’t buy the FS5 because it is cheaper than the FS7, I knew I was going to spend more money on the FS5 with all the extra’s than on an FS7, besides, I already own the PZ 28-135 FS7 kit lens
