  3. Apparently my last comment to you was too harsh in the eyes of the moderators of this site and thus deleted, so instead I will politely ask you this time to re-read the article, comprehend the contents and then reflect upon your comment.

    What all of you have missed is the fact that Camera RAW file structure, (patented, I think), changes from camera to camera, month to month, and year to year.
