I just purchased Mamiya ZD and am trying to find the best raw conversion software for its files to be used on Windows platform. So far I used ACR 3.6, SilkyPix 3.0 and Mamiya's Digital PhotoStudio (DPS) 1.2.
DPS seems to be in very premature state. It's only advantage is that it allows teathered shooting and opens MEF files with VERY accurate white balance. Noise reduction is a joke. Extremely bad user interface.
ACR is OK and together with bridge provide the best workflow solution.
ACR very poorly interprets white balance from MEF files.
SilkyPix seems like the best option for raw processing, although I am not too familiar yet with its batch capabilities. SilkyPix provides accurate color with camera's white balance, yet a bit less accurate than Mamiya's DPS. SilkyPix is able to extract a wider dynamic range than ACR.
Please share your thoughts and experience with ZD's raw files and any other software that can be used to develop them.
