File Viewer Utility
The File Viewer Utility lets you view images, customize in-camera settings
and convert raw files to TIFF or JPEG format. Before conversion you can
apply digital exposure compensation and Kelvin white balance (2800° to
10000°K) to the raw
image data. You can also quickly extract the embedded Medium size JPEG
image from the raw file.
