Iridient Developer 2021 Mac is a powerful RAW image conversion application designed and optimized specifically for Mac OS X. Iridient Developer gives advanced photographers total control over every aspect of their digital camera’s output, yet still provides easy drag and drop batch conversion and access to basic adjustments for the casual user. Thanks in part to Dave Coffin’s work on the open source RAW decoding program dcraw, RAW developer is able to support files from over 400 RAW capable digital camera models!!
Iridient Developer mac featuresNote that although we do use portions of dcraw for decoding RAW image files, essentially the entire image processing pipeline is completely unique to RAW Developer this includes the demosaicing algorithms used for all cameras based on RGB color filters (which is nearly all of them), all color management operations, all other processing adjustments, sharpening, noise reduction and final file format conversion.
- Two new version 4 RAW (demosaic) processing algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras feature improved fine detail rendering while reducing false detail artifacts, lower noise and provide fast performance.
- Support added for RAW images from the Nikon D5 and D500.
- Support added for RAW images from the Canon 80D, 1D X Mark II, 1300D (Rebel T6, Kiss X80) and PowerShot G7 X Mark II.
- Support added for RAW images from the Sony A6300 (ILCE-6300), A68 (ILCA-68) and RX10 III (DSC-RX10M3).
- Support added for compressed RAF images from the Fujifilm X-Pro2.
- Support added for RAW images from the Panasonic DMC-GX80 and DMC-GX85.
- Support added for RAW images from the Leica M-D (Typ 262).
- Support added for RAW images from the DJI FC550 (Xenmuse X5), FC350 (Inspire 1 and Phantom 4), FC300X (Phantom 3 Pro) and FC300S (Phantom 3 Advanced).
- Support added for RAW images from the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K, URSA Mini 4K, URSA 4.6K and URSA.
- Support added for RAW images from the HTC One A9 and One M9.
- Support added for RAW images from the Samsung Galaxy S7.
- Greatly improved highlight recovery when using some DNG Camera Profiles, especially those that include color lookup tables.
- Stronger, more effective Highlights (Neighborhood Adaptive) and Shadows processing, especially for the higher end of the adjustment range.
- No longer using the embedded DNG camera profiles by default for some of the recent Leica models (SL, T and Q).
- The embedded camera profiles do not seem to be well liked by many so I have now switched to my own custom ICC profiles for these models, the manufacturer’s embedded profiles are still available in the Input Profile menu.
