Value of S7000 RAW Mode?
Jan 19, 2004

In his Review, Phil wrote:

"The only RAW conversion tool provided with the S7000 is the disappointing 'RAW File Converter LE' which simply allows ... to convert them into 8-bit TIFF images."

Agreed. There are no tools for adjusting exposure, color, or ANY image parameter. It simply converts the raw data into a TIFF file.

"Fujifilm does have the more advanced RAW File Converter EX but chooses to sell it as an option. ..."

True, but the EX software is not compatible with the RAW files generated by the S7000. Nor is Adobe RAW 2 in Photoshop CS. I own both software and tried, but neither was able to open an S7000 RAW file.

So, for now there is no software on the market for manipulating S7000 RAW files. Perhaps in future.
