Are there any information regarding the support of the new Fujifilm X10 RAW files?

Unfortunately the RAF files are not the same like the X100.

 

There are already some rumors out there, that Apple is not going to support the X10...

Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Only Apple can answer those questions and no one here is from Apple, so you'll just have to wait like the rest of us.

    Your best bet is to request for the X10 RAF file support via the Aperture feedback menu item.

    Even worse Lightroom JUST released its latest version, which supports the Fuji X10 RAW files. Come on, Apple! I'm being forced to pay for an update to LR when I'd far rather stick with Aperture.

    You reaize you can convert the RAW's to DNG's and use the DNG's in Aperture untill Aperture supports the camera?

    Frank, I think that's been discussed elsewhere in Support, and the conclusion was that Aperture didn't convert Fuji's RAW files into DNGs. If I'm missing something here, I'd love to know.

    Aren't you guy super tired of being apple slaves?

    I hate to be doing what they decide for me.

    Now I can't use aperture with this because they don't want to work on it.

    Now they don't translate this because they don't want to.

    Too much loyalty from me but they get the cash and I got what they want me to get.

    I don't like lightroom, but why is Adobe always acting WAY faster than apple in customer support?

    Tell Fuji.

     

    And if you'd like, tell Apple:  "Aperture→Provide Aperture feedback".

     

    As mentioned already in this thread.

    Those were just the cameras from the 3.9 update released in November, before the X10 was widely available.

    This isn't Fuji's problem. This is Apple's. Adobe has long ago updated LR and ACR to read Fuji X10 RAF files. And yet still we await Apple.

    Fuji and Apple are corporations.  They make agreements.  Every camera company uses their own RAW formats, and usually changes the RAW format for each camera.  If Fuji wanted to use an open standard, they would.

     

    I'm not saying that the deal couldn't be done if Apple wanted to -- but I am saying that after exhausting your influence with Apple (via "Aperture→Provide Aperture Feedback"), you are well advised to complain to Fuji as well.

    It could very well be that Adobe gets pre-release camera's to characterize. Or that Apple's policy says to wait for full production release - we really don't know.

     

    Do you expect your local Garage to be able to fix a Chevy Volt right now?

    Frustration over the months of lag on Apple's part is quite legitimate. As noted Adobe released updates that accomodate the Fuji X10 quite awhile ago. Apple dwarfs Adobe in size and clout worldwide. I don't believe for a micro second that Adobe has an edge in RAW technology access. This is 100% a matter of Apple priorities, and frankly, makes Apple look bad. I personally made the decision several years ago to use Aperture instead of Lightroom. Now, to convert my Fuji RAW files, I've been penalized for that decision, and forced to buy (for $100) an alternate software package to make decent RAW to TIFF conversions. And I'm still waiting on Apple.

     

    As much as I love Apple, this is SO typical. And a case for a rant being justified.

    If *Fuji* made decent RAW software (like DPP for Canon) you would at least have a decent work-around!
