ACR and the K3ii camera

QuoteOriginally posted by Tjompen1968 Quote
I have the K-3 and when taking a HDR in RAW it creates this huge file containing all files taken and when opened in Adobe or Pentax software it only displays one of the files so the only way to get a processed jpg or tiff is to do it in the camera or use Pentax software to extract the files and do a HDR merge in photoshop or what ever software you like.
May this be the same with the pixel shift thingy?
This is a bit off topic but looks to me like the most common software post-processing software programs are not (yet?) supporting the HDR and 'Pixel Shift' files produced by this camera....from the Adobe v 9.1 camera raw update:

Camera Raw 9.1 is now available through the update mechanism in Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC.

As mentioned here, updates to Camera Raw for Photoshop CS6 only include new camera support, lens profile support, and bug fixes. The new features listed in the release notes are only available in Photoshop CC.

New Features

Many outdoor scenes have some amount of haze due to atmospheric conditions. Dehaze is a new feature for removing/adding haze and fog from pictures.
The user can control how much haze to remove by adjusting a new slider in the Effects panel in the Dehaze section. This feature can also be used in the other direction to increase the amount of haze.
Recommended Workflow Adjust the white balance of the image before applying the Dehaze control.
Local White and Black Adjustment Sliders
Available with all 3 local adjustment tools: Gradient Filter, Radial Filter and Local adjustment brush
Useful for fine-tuning tonality near the brightest and darkest parts of the picture. For instance, they can be used to increase the contrast of highlights.
Recommended Workflow Make your global adjustments first and then use the local adjustments to fine tune. Use the clip warning indicator to help avoid clipping highlights and shadows.
New Camera Support in Camera Raw 9.1

Wow! If that isn't unexpected!
