DNG file

What is the difference between a Pentax 645z DNG file and the DNG+ file? I've been using the regular DNG file and they've been fine. Any advantages to the + file?

DNG+ saves both the DNG and a full res jpeg

DNG+ is not a different file. It is a just a shooting mode in which the camera produces both a DNG file and a jpeg file. Useful if you want mostly jpeg but a backup DNG just in case or if you need a quick jpeg to look at in the field or show a client before processing the DNG.

Or transfer to a phone via Mobi Eyefi etc.
You can set the JPG size and resolution on most cameras that support the mode.

one thing the others left out, with the 645D and 645Z you set the camera to save the dng file to card 1 and the jpeg file to card 2.
