Darktable currently supports most Panasonic cameras that output RW2 type RAW files. The m4/3's sensors in these camera's unsurprisingly have a native aspect ratio of 4:3. Most Panasonic cameras have the added possibility to crop the RAW file in the camera body. These special "cropped" RW2 files are often not very well supported yet.

Usually each camera has four "crop" modes:
- 4:3
- 3:2
- 16:9
- 1:1

To help us add support for these, we need a single RW2 file for each of these aspect ratio modes.

Each shot needs to be at a low ISO, and should be reasonably decently lit. Contents of the shots doesn't matter too much. Please provide something with some structure and detail, and please avoid submitting shots with recognizable people in them.

While not directly related to Darktable we'd also appreciate it, if you'd check if already has a sample for this camera, and if not, please submit a sample to them as well.

Apparently already has aspect ratio's (except for 1:1) for this particular model:

#2 Updated by Pascal de Bruijn over 5 years ago

Apparently the original LX3 did not have a 1:1 capability, but that was later added with a firmware upgrade:

So we're still interested in a complete set (of four) of samples produced with the latest camera firmware.
