Hello,

My company has just released the first handheld photo editing and wireless transmission solution for photojournalists. A large wire service has asked us to add support for the tiff files generated by their Kodak DCS 520 Pro cameras. They are proprietary tiffs containing raw 12 bit CCD data, with a 2:1 lossless compression applied. Kodak has an SDK for Windows and Mac, but not Pocket PC, and is unwilling to provide the details needed to decode the tiffs without using their SDKs. A long shot, but does anyone have any clues as to the compression scheme they are using in these files? There are some samples at http://www.kodak.com/US/en/developers/tools/03_dcs520.jhtml

Thanks,

Paul Nolan, CEO Idruna Software Inc.
