I've got a macbook air Processore  1,7 GHz Intel Core i5, Grafica  Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB, Software  OS X 10.9 (13A603), Aperture version 3.5.1, raw 5.01 build 718.1, digital camera raw support 5010, build 91.8.

When browsing thumbnails of the raw files from Fujifilm X100s or Fujifilm xpro-1, the image disappears and a meesage comes out saying that file type is not supported. Sometimes they work for a while than suddenly get into the error and don't work any longer.

Is there a solution or shall I throw away Aperture and move to Adobe?

Thanks in advance for your attention.

    Hi,

     

    I just got a FujiFilm X-E2 and when I imported the RAW files to Aperture 3.5.1 on a MBP Retina running 10.9 I get the same thing? They appear as thimbnails as long as I don't click on them. Then I get the same Unsupported File Format message.

    On Apples's site at http://www.apple.com/aperture/specs/raw.html it says that Fujifilm X-E1 is a supported raw format(plus the xpro-1 & x100). I can't imagine the format is different for other Fuji cameras?

     

    Pat.

    Raw support is camera specific - it needs to take into account the sensor characteristic, and if possible, the lens.

     

    The Fujifilm X-E1:  http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilm-x-e1

    Fujifilm X-E1 key features

    • 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor
    • ISO 200-6400, 100 - 25600 expanded (JPEG only)
    • 2.36M dot OLED electronic viewfinder
    • New kit zoom: 18-55mm F2.8-4R
    • Same control layout as X-Pro1, including top-plate shutter speed and exposure compensation dials
    • 2.8" 460k-dot LCD
    • Built-in pop-up flash
    • Full HD movie recording with built-in stereo microphone
    • 2.5mm stereo microphone socket
    • Compatibility with wired remote control units (via either the USB port or mic socket)
    • Available in silver or black

    http://www.dpreview.com/previews/fujifilm-x-e2

    Fujifilm X-E2 key features

    • 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor
    • EXR Processor II
    • ISO 200-6400, plus 100 - 25600 expanded (JPEG only)
    • 7 fps continuous shooting; 3 fps with continuous AF
    • Lens Modulation Optimizer (for sharper JPEGs when shooting at large or small apertures)
    • 2.36M dot OLED electronic viewfinder
    • Top-plate analogue shutter speed and exposure compensation dials
    • 3" 1.04M dot 3:2 fixed LCD (non-tilting, not touch-sensitive)
    • Built-in Wi-Fi for image transfer to smartphones or computers
    • Full HD movie recording (1920x1080, 60fps, 36Mbps bitrate), with built-in stereo microphone
    • 2.5mm stereo microphone socket, also accepts electronic remote releases
    • Available in silver or black

     

    The sensors do differ, the lenses are treated differently, the X-E2 can record 14bit raw. It definitely needs a different raw support.

    I also tried to open this file in Photoshop (CS6) and it couldn't open it either. On Adobe's it also says it supports raw file from the X-E1.

     

    So has anyone any idea why these application don't support these raw files?

     

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the info. I see what you mean. But Apple says it supports the cameras Benconti has?

    Gianluigi,

    are you using the NIK plug-ins?

    There are several threads describing problems with raw no longer being recognized, after editing with NIK plug-ins, e.g. Till now Aperture worked well in mavericks, "suddenly?" the import of raw files from Nikon D700 is no more supported, only jpg's are accepted. Any idea what happened?

    What kind of trouble-shooting have you tried?

    After the problem with the NIK plug-ins I'd be suspicious of the integrity of the Aperture library and repair the library, just in case. (Repairing and Rebuilding Your Aperture Library)

    Also, have you reprocessed the raw images?  Seelct the raw images in the Browser and from the main menu bar use: "Photos > Reprocess Originals"

    Another (unpleasant) option that works is to create a new Aperture Library and import the images to that.

    My raw files on a fuji X-E2 don't work too. I hope apple fixes this soon.
