Fujifilm X-T2 RAW

I can't open the RAW files from the Fujifilm X-T2.

I get a file with a bottom black half and a white upper half. I can not open it.

I am forced to shoot JPG only now.

 

Is there a sollution for this problem?

 

With best regalrds.

Too New for DCRAW 9.22

One way is to use Adobe Raw convertor found here --> https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cameras.... where the camera you mention is listed.

 

Here are the cameras supported by the latest DRAW program -->  http://ufraw.sourceforge.net/Cameras.html (Your camera is not listed)

 

Hopefully updates will happen soon.

Thanks Steve,

Thanks Steve,

In the past i made the choice that my privacy was to impotant to me to just give it up, so i am running GNU/Linux.

Adobe does not care about people running GNU/Linux so it is imposible for me to run any Adobe software.To bad because i would  stil be using Ligtroom. So i guess i'll keep shooting SOOC JPG for he time neing.

 

With best regards.

Other options

Dcraw is still missing your camera on the supported cameras list. The main problem seems to be the compressed raw format. Even LightZone can open uncompressed photos (although the colours are wrong). Darktable opens these files fine, so does the PhotoFlow/Gimp combo.

For the compressed format, RawTherapee seems to be the best option. You can then pass the photos to LightZone or Gimp for further editing.

DigiKam's raw importer can also process both formats. (Tested with ver. 5.6.0.)

Adobe's DNG converter should run fine under Wine. Converted photos can be edited in LightZone.

Have a good day!

I just received my X-T2, and can confirm that neither LZ nor GIMP 2.95 will open the compressed raw files.  RawTherapee will do so, however, but what is the procedure to then be able to edit them in LZ?

Do I have to export them as jpegs, which will lose the raw details?  Or as 16-bit tiffs?  Or ???

Adobe DNG

Here is the list of cameras supports by Adobe DNG.  Both Windows and Mac version exist.  New cameras do take a while to be added.

Take a look at the download page of Adobe DNG

From RawTherapee,

you should certainly export 16-bit tiffs. In Therapee, I would use the program's superb noise control and highlight reconstruction. Plus lens distortion corrections, defringing, CA correction and similar things, when needed. You can do almost anything except local editing and luminance/chrominance masks, so RT can often be enough, but if you prefer LightZone's tools and approach, you can export very nice and clean tiffs for editing in LZ.

I run Linux on all my machines, so this will not work.  Thanks anyway!

I can open the compressed X-T2 raw files in Rawtherapee, however, and then export them as 16-bit tiffs to GIMP.  But getting them into LZ is something I have not been able to figure out, yet.

Jacal
In RT Preferences,

General, External Editor, choose Other command line. In my case, /usr/bin/lightzone works. It creates a 16-bit tiff in /tmp and opens it in LZ.

Thanks for the tip, Jacal. 

Thanks for the tip, Jacal.  Works a treat!  Only issue is that if LZ is already running, this will open the tiff in another instance of LZ.  Can that be avoided?

Use Wine in Linux for Adobe DNG Convertor

Have you tried Wine?

Your camera is not supported yet

Hi

 

Your camera is not on the supported list of cameras yet. LZ uses dc-raw for working with RAW. It has not been updated in allmost a year. Hopefully this will happen soon.

Jacal suggested Rawtherapee. It is a good solution if it works. It is a native Linux program so it should work for you. In case of problems tell me your distribution and version. I am on linux myself

 

Have a nice day

Rawtherapee

is a very nice program but is a complete resourse hog on my low to medium end Ubtuntu 16.04 OS desktop.  For me I had to completely stay away from Tone Mapping, even though that feature produced great results it crashed my machine more often then not.  The help section will tell you which features are the most resourse intense features.  I figured why use a software that I wasn't comfortable I could use all the features. 

 

YMMV

Are you using the latest version,

Steve? On my 5 years old PC (i5, 16 GB RAM) it is fast on Windows 7 and Ubuntu Studio 17.4. No problems with tone mapping. The retinex module is rather slow.

RT people are yammering about lack of manpower, but they actually have a nice team of developers, updating the code daily. One of them has a kind of specialised on making the critical parts faster, with good results. (Not good enough to edit 50 MP photos with 4 GB of RAM, though.)

LightZone is rather slow in zooming with multiple demanding tools active. I often export multiple full-sized lzn jpeg pictures and compare them in an image viewer.

RT Version 4.2-4

Jacal,

I double checked and my RT version is 4.2-4, which is the only version listed for Ubuntu 16.04 in my Synaptic Package Manager as well as my Ubuntu Software manager.  I think that your 16 GB of memory advanatge over my 8 GB of memory may be the difference between our processing speeds.  My desktop came with 4 GB of Ram and I upped it to 8.  I'm not even certain it will allow further update, I'd have to look it up.

 

You're correct, LZ can get bogged down as well but trying to convert tonemapping in RT nearly always crashes my desktop.

Steve, this RT version is very old,

if you decide to install from PPA, you will notice the difference. Both latest "stable" version (5.2) and "unstable" (development) version are available for Ubuntu 16.04. Works decently also on my laptop (i3, 8 GB RAM) on Ubuntu 17.04.

Jacal, I Upgraded My RT to 5.2

I'm looking into it now but it sure looks different then I remember it.  It has some similarities to Darktable in appearance.  It looks like a learning curve is order as well.  I'll test what I can and get back to you when I can.  My time is limited though.

 

Thanks!

Any news when (or if) the compressed Fuji X-T2 raw files will be supported?

Not yet

We are waiting (and have been for some time as you know), on a new dcraw version. Lets hope it will be out soon ...

 

Have a nice day
