That page was designed to be a supplement to the article
Here is a link to ImageJ plugin for JP46. Additionally it reads Exif
MakerNote field and un-applies gamma and analog gains, so ImageJ gets
floating point pixel data proportional to the number of photons the sensor

There are several here and there - made by ourselves (i.e.
but you can find much more processed stills made by others.

Yes, it could be applicable to other cameras too - JP4 is basically JPEG
with different color components and pixels rearranged for optimal
compression of Bayer data. Funny thing that I am not aware of any software
JP4/JP46 encoder - from the very beginning it ran in the hardware (
modified from the regular color 4:2:0 JPEG I implemented earlier. And there
are multiple software decoders.
