Raw files?

Just wondering, are the Q / Q10 DNG files fully 'open' and readable with any version of ACR or are they (like proprietary formats) dependent on the latest versions of the software being installed?

They should be universally compatible. That is the definition of DNG it's an Adobe standard. I've had no problems with DNG out of camera or after conversion with DxO.

Thanks. In the last few days I have downloaded a few raw files from a review website, and they were very disappointing. Nothing wrong with the camera I think, just really bad exposure by the reviewer - clipping both highlights and shadows. There seemed to be the possibility to raise the shadows a fair bit, so this was just sloppy technique I think. I cannot see much real-world difference between the IQ from my K100D and the Q, although there are of course other big differences. I am very keen to see the new Q10 now, as it should be even better.
