can not open RAF files via Mac OS Preview or Pixelmator Pro

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, I have new X-T30 II with latest firmware and I can not open RAF files on my Macbook Pro 16 M2 Max. My Mac OS is in the latest version and I also use Pixelmator Pro latest version.

I try to change settings on X-T30 II to uncompressed RAF file, also to lossless compressed and compressed, but the same problem. With older body X-T4 I have not this problem, only with this new X-T30 mark II.

Have you any advice?

Apart from wait none I am afraid to say. I had the same with the GFX 50 files to begin with. However, 'DxO Photolab 6' handles them perfectly. Also when you upload a file taken with a lens not yet in its database it will auto suggest you download the corresponding file. I have two Fuji cameras and 5 lenses all of them now recognised by this software which I am very happy with.

Frustrating - Apple does now support uncompressed raw from the X-T5 and X-H2 which were released a long time after your camera. (Compressed raw isn't supported from any FujiFilm camera)

Yes I know, that I must use uncompressed RAW format only to open or edit, but now, nothing works. Only JPEG 😕

According to this:


Apple does not yet support the X-T30 II. There are some options you can try.


Use this (it is free) to convert the raw files to TIFF, which you can then edit in your current editor.


Use an EXIF editor to change the camera name in the raf’s exif tags to X-T30 — version one — and then the Apple support should be there. I do not recommend this other than as a last choice option.

Hello Stefan,  Have you tried Adobe Bridge?  I believe it's a free download.  May want to try a free trial of Luminar, or Capture One as well.  You have nothing to lose but a few bucks if you decide to buy it.

    • I was laying in bed and heard a hooting outside my window and was able to get a shot of this guy.  The conditions were terrible, 1am, overcast and starting to rain so it was extremally dark.  400mm, ISO 12800, f5.6 SS 1.5s and heavily processed.  All I could make out was a dark shadow in the branches once my eyes adjusted.  The wind was also picking up so I couldn't lower the shutter speed anymore to drop the ISO.   I had to use manual focus and kept firing off shots slowing adjusting the focus each time time until it seemed in focus.  The photo is is obviously horrible but it's fun finally having some reach and very cool this owl showed up just after getting the lens.  I think I'm going to have to build some owl boxes and put them up around the property. I also need to learn to navigate through the settings in the dark.

    • Have you done all of these: - Set the Drive dial on top of the camera to Bracketing (BKT) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Choose the three film simulations you want to use and (most important) - In the Shooting Menu => Drive Setting => Bkt Setting => Bkt Select : Choose Film Simulation  
    • You have Clarity in the Image Quality menu set to something other than zero
    • I use back button focusing on X-T5 but only lock AF using Switch option. I have set both AF ON and AEL buttons to AF ON because I kept pressing the wrong button accidentally and I let the camera take care of AE Lock when shutter half-pressed. BTW I think Fujifilm could do also do a better job of locating the other Fn buttons particularly the one next to the shutter button as it is really difficult to get to. I;d prefer them all in a vertical line on the front so can easily feel which one I'm pressing!
    • Can anyone provide me with the answer. I am new to fujifilm camera.  I am using the XT4 and in single shot mode, everytime, I take a shot, the Lcd screen will display "storing" and I have to wait for the message to disappear before I can take the next shot! Is there a way to turn this off.
