Image Data Converter Review

Sven Sorensen
Provides full support for Sony RAW image formats
A review of Image Data Converter by Sven Sørensen

You may be the owner of one of a number of various Sony Alpha or Sony NEX cameras which produce RAW files. Unfortunately, professional image suites aren't always optimized for the RAW formats which Sony cameras produce. In any case, Sony does provide its own tool for converting and processing RAW images with its Sony Image Data Converter.

The program interface reminds us of other Sony software products. That isn't a good thing to be honest, and you might be a little frustrated with this software for many reasons, the main reason being its interface.

The interface of Sony Image Data Converter strays away from professional suites in that its color scheme is bright and in our opinion, doesn't focus enough on workflow. Like most Sony software products, it is slow and probably a quickly conjured-up after-thought.

With that said, the image quality for Sony RAW files is certainly better than Adobe or DxO Optics Pro. In our tests, it produced noticeably sharper images with default settings. Image Data Converter also provides access to Sony image data stored within the EXIF metadata.

After loading images with the default settings, users of Image Data Converter can also modify sharpness, reduce noise, fix distortions, modify shading compensation. It can also modify brightness/contrast, white balance, color levels and tone curve. All of the editing options are accessible from the right-pane.

Overall, Image Data Converter is a must-have for Sony Alpha cameras owners. Unfortunately, those with an eye for detail and professionals will likely have to continue optimizing their images in a more professional suite such as Lightroom.

Image Data Converter can apply special effects to a picture, view EXIF data, convert RAW to JPG and batch process images.
