Whenever a new camera is produced, someone must code a new raw format loader. This would be an endless task of updating raw formats. Many of these formats are undocumented (even for pro digital SLR cameras!! :evil:) and thus someone must spend a great deal of time reverse-engineering these formats.

Personally i have a Fuji S2pro, and the raw format of this one is extremely complex, as the pixels are aligned in a weird octogonal pattern which requires sub-pixel precision calculations. How complex this is, is obvious when you see how many failed attempts there have been in reading this format properly.
