Perfect! Just take any dumb photo and put it on a web- or ftp-server for 
me to download from.

I don't have ambitions for actually decoding/processing the RAW image 
data currently, so it is mainly for thumbnail/preview extraction and 
meta-data. Right now the only meta-data item I read out is the rotation 
for correct thumbnail display, but ISO, shutter, aperture, focal length 
and whatnot would be nice too of course.

Any idea how different Minolta RAW files are for different camera
