Panasonic g9 RAW High Res file

Recommended Posts

My new Panasonic G9 camera has a high res file mode.  It produces a RW2 File of about 80mb.  I cannot open this file in Affinity even though my normal RW2 files open just fine.  It will open in Luminar, but not in Xee^3 viewer on the Mac, though all other files open with Xee^3. 

I can convert the file using the Adobe Image converter and then it is a fully functional file in Affinity.

Can someone help me understand why this file is giving Affinity a problem?

A sample of these files is attached.

Doesn't look like the G9 is in the supported Raw list: 

Ive used Adobe DNG Converter to convert your file to a DNG with the original file embedded, These are the settings I used

Thanks for the list of RAW files supported.  

I see the G9 is not on that list, but I have no issue opening a G9 RAW RW2 file.  It is only a issue with the HiRes RW2 RAW file. 

Why would Affinity open a G9 RW2 file but not open a G9 RW2 HiRes File?  Both should conform to the same file format with the only difference being the size of the files.
