Fu­ji­film an­nounces raw con­ver­sion soft­ware

Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

FU­JI­FILM has an­nounced it is de­vel­op­ing soft­ware that will work in con­junc­tion with its cam­eras to con­vert raw im­ages.

The Fu­ji­film X RAW Stu­dio will en­able pho­tog­ra­phers to con­vert raw files quickly once a cam­era is con­nected to a Mac or PC via USB cable. Util­is­ing the X Pro­ces­sor Pro in the cam­era, rather than the CPU of the com­puter, it prom­ises to re­tain ex­cep­tional im­age qual­ity.

As raw files have in­creased in size, batch con­ver­sion of mul­ti­ple im­ages can be ex­tremely time con­sum­ing but by work­ing with the X Pro­ces­sor Pro, batch pro­cess­ing is han­dled much more ef­fi­ciently.

Also an­nounced is a set of free firmware up­grades for a range of Fu­ji­film mod­els, in­clud­ing the X- Pro2, X-T2, X100F and X-T20. The up­grade brings with it sup­port for the new Fu­ji­film X RAW Stu­dio soft­ware, as well as a host of other im­prove­ments.

The com­pany says it has spo­ken to ex­ist­ing X-se­ries users to de­velop the up­dates, based on the needs and feed­back of pho­tog­ra­phers. There’s AF im­prove­ments for mov­ing sub­jects, sup­port for teth­ered shoot­ing and ad­di­tions made to 4K video record­ing for the X- Pro2.

The new soft­ware is due to be avail­able from late Novem­ber, while the firmware up­grades will be ready to down­load for the X-T2 and X-T20 from late Novem­ber, and late De­cem­ber for the X- Pro2 and the X100F.

The new soft­ware will mean batch pro­cess­ing will be more ef­fi­cient
