FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO

Features

“FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” is Fujifilm’s new RAW conversion software which offers alternative functionality to existing RAW conversion software. Once a compatible digital camera has been connected to a computer, “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” allows users to:

  • Quickly convert RAW files. Converting RAW files with FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO takes around the same time as taking a photo on the camera, regardless of the performance of your computer, because the FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO system utilizes the image processor in the camera instead of the CPU in the computer.
  • Retain the exceptional image quality from the camera, including the tonality, color reproduction and noise reduction.

2. Connect the camera with your Mac or PC via USB cable

Use a USB cable to connect the camera with your Mac or PC. If the camera and your Mac or PC are compatible with USB3.0, connecting via USB3.0 cable is recommended. USB3.0 cable allows you to convert RAW files in a shorter time.
