how to open RW2 files


  • hi.

    i have taken a bunch of photos in the raw format but i am unsure how to be able to see them.

    i looked up a bunch of programs used to open raw files but not specifically raw2 files.

    either way i need a program to be able to see these picture files.

    can anyone help with a good suggestion of a program that is easy to use??

  • Hi,

    Based my research, Adobe Lightroom or Google Picasa may open the RAW2 files.

  • Every camera manufacturer includes one or more software utilities to read the RAW format files.  You need to read the user information included with your camera or contact the camera manufacturer's Technical Support.

    Go to to download the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack.

    Since your questions are really about your camera and not really Windows 7 problems, why are you not posting your questions in the Panasonic Support forums?  That is exactly why Panasonic established their support forums!

    This is a Microsoft forum, not a Panasonic forum!
