Image processor which mimics camera settings

I am posting this because I cannot find now the thread where a question was asked

Someone had asked if there was any RAW converter that mimiked the camera settings

From memory the latest version of pentax photo laboratory does this

I can confirm this -
the Lab part of the Pentax DCU (Digital Camera Utility) default is "Camera setting" -
which basically gives the same rendering as the paired JPG if taken as RAW+JPG.

I have pairs of DNG+JPG - this is a pair I took trying to see the difference other RAW processors treated the DNG file with the K-x Highlight Correction On (this feature caused some some RAW processors not to render the RAW file correctly).

JPG - IMGP3965.JPG - un-retouched other than resize:


DNG - IMGP3965.DNG - default converted with Pentax DCU 4.21


Both shots should have EXIF data attached
(caveat: PhotoBucket can mysteriously drop metadata)

But the specific point is whether the adjustment controls in pentax photo lab 4 mimic the camera controls

i tried pentax dcu4 and i must say that im somewhat dissapointed, the incamera jpg are far better.
yesterday, i developed some raws and decided to compare against some jpgs. the first thing i noted was the pictures have more noise (chroma noise at iso1600) and some highlights looks wierd. everything with default settings, no corrections.

but, i will still use since i prefered the pentax color

Ah, ok... you do have the advantage of at least recall of what the original inquiry was
- whereas we can only (mis)interpret your single post re: mimic.

However getting to your clarified point
the adjustment panels available in Pentax DCU v 4.21 (the latest for the K-x)





these seem to give most of the camera settings including lens aberration adjustment/correction.
