What I don’t get is, why they have to revise the RAW files with every camera model. It’s my understanding that they’re ‘improving’ the codec, but is that really necessary with every camera model? What can you improve in the Codec? You can make the files smaller, and/or compressed faster. But DNG continue to be slighter smaller than RAW files. What gives?From a programming perspective, any given camera's first duty is to quickly and accurately get your RAW file to the cache and then to your storage. It doesn't matter if your camera has 10fps, if the system can't write the files fast enough so I assume they squash down the files to the absolute minimum bits. Doing so would mean that even a small change to megapixels or ExIFF data would mean a different file format.
