X-Trans RAW Support - Complain Where It Counts
Nov 24, 2012

I see there are already a number of threads with many people complaining about the lack of (although debatable) proper RAW support for X-Trans from RAW Processing Software.

While I can totally understand the frustration being vented, may I suggest that all this effort could be put to much greater effect by going directly to where the issue really is.

Fujifilm do not own Adobe, DXO, Aperture or any other RAW processing software. The issue that appears to be frustrating a great many (which is actually in itself debatable) is that these software developers have failed to get off their lazy behinds and build in proper support for the X-Trans.

Fujifilm would be busting their guts to encourage these software developers to build proper support for the X-Pro1 and X-E1 in to their software as they would be fully aware that without it could potentially negatively impact on the X-Trans ability to gain traction in the market place.

To further complicate this it appears to be debatable as to whether some software support the X-Trans or not - so I will not touch on that one.

Complain to the people who can fix this issue directly ....

Adobe: http://helpx.adobe.com/contact/
Aperture: http://www.apple.com/support/contact/
DXO: http://support.dxo.com/home?locale=1

Perhaps some may like to provide further links to other RAW processing software.

The Fujifilm X-Trans sensor is a bold innovation that I can see with my own eyes delivers something much better than its normal Bayer pattern predecessor. I personally believe it is a stroke of brilliance, one that companies like Sony would not be happy about at all. Sony is locked in to the old Bayer pattern with nowhere to go - the extent of their innovation seems to be cramming more pixels in or making sensors larger.

So if you believe that software developers have failed to build in proper support for the X-Trans then why not vent it directly to the people who can supply you with a product that solves the issue.

Cheers
