  • Raw test target

    More of a theoretical task than anything else, but I can envision some real usefulness for this:

    Can anyone think of a way to make an ideal (ie: perfect) test target as a Raw file? Photographing a test target won't work, it needs to be some way to make a perfect target (via Photoshop or some other way) and exporting as a Raw file (and Save As...Photoshop RAW won't work, that's a different kind of raw).

    So, a perfect (ie: 0,0,0 0,0,255 0,255,0 255,0,0 128,128,128 etc.) file that opens in Camera Raw. Can it be made (or has it already been made)?

    RAW file converters

    I would like to ask for opinions on RAW file converters. Any considerable advantages of using third party software vs Adobe Camera RAW? If so, what would you suggest? Reviews seem to have different views on this.
