Pentax Optio 33WR How to use raw mode?


This is my first post here on Pentax forum, I have a Pentax Optio 33WR compact camera and I found this site to enable a hidden raw mode.

Pentax Optio 33WR RAW mode and other secrets

I have a linux mint 14 installation so I think I can compile these files but, have any one here tried this with any success? I saw that DCRAW have support for my camera with the raw file from this hack.

Exactly how do I use this hack to enable raw mode on my old compact camera?

Just a dumb question: OK, you get RAW with the 33WR, and how do you process it ? There isn't a RAW processor software in the world that will support it as far as I know.

I happened to buy an Optio 33WR for the kids to use. Now I'm surprised to find out that it would allow access to the RAW files as well. Unfortunately the original link is now missing.. Does anybody remember anything about how is it done?

Does anyone tested this hack yet? I have not tested it but it would be interesting to use it.

Here is the link again.
