Larger Raw Pictures In Picasa?

08 November 2012 - 10:29 PM

For a first and quick view of my photos (Panasonic GH2) I use Panasonics PhotofunStudio. Silkypix Pro 5.0 is my editing software. I was quite satisfied, untill I had the audacity to open a RAW file in Picasa. I discovered that both Panasonic and Silkypix literally don't show the whole picture. About 3 to 4% from the edges (it is hard to be exact) have been cut off. In some RAW photos I find a little discoloration near the edges, but others are perfectly allright. Does Panasonic play safe for a good reason? Is it common practice? Are Canon and Nikon and others doing te same? I understood RAW really meant RAW, including all raw data. What is the technical story behind it?

Panasonic Gh2 Viewfinder

On my Panasonic GH2 both the evf and lcd are locked on to the 16:9 aspect ratio, even when I choose a different setting f.i. 1:1.
Shots taken in 1:1 are correctly displayed afterwards. Has anyone encountered the same problem? Did I unintentionally change a setting? Cant find anything in the manual. I have tried changing lenses, removing the battery while camera is turned on.
A few days ago I took several nightshots, but exposure time never exceeded 1 sec. so I doubt the processor got overheated.
Suggestions please.
