    Hi Andrew,

    Capture One for Fuji won't be bale to read and edit RAW other than coming from Fuji bodies, unfortunately. You could try to transform your Fuji RAW into DNG and ask C1 to read and edit them, but I am not sure it would work....

    As Robert has indicated the Fuji only version will NOT support non-Fuji RAW files but jpg, and TIFF should be fine.

    DNG is a slightly odd one since some cameras use DNG format for their RAW files and have the RAW file embedded - which helps Capture One's editing abilities BUT probably means that you would need the Full Pro version.

    Generic DNG pre-converted from other formats without the embedded RAW data would probably be fine BUT there are a few different standards of DNG in existence and I seem to recall that C1, like most other converters, tends not to support the less popular of them successfully.

    HTH.

    My experience of converting to DNG is horrendous. I have had to trowel through backups to find my original RAWs and restore them. The problem is CO does not handle DNG very well, this is not necessarily CO’s fault For instance the Lightroom DNG converter simplifies the lens name in the exif data so CO does not recognise it and cannot apply distortion correction etc.

    Interesting David.

    Does the LR DNG converter burn in the camera supplied lens adjustments in any way at all?

    If it does not that would seem to be a surprising omission. I could perhaps understand them not paying too much attention to whether they retain stuff from the RAW file that other applications might be using for their own purposes bit it would seem a little strange not to bother to include the lens correction data from the manufacturer.

    For instance in a dng converted from RAF that I am looking at now in Metadata/Vendor Specific Lens is given as XF14mmF2.8 R while the original RAF has Lens as Fujifilm Fujinon XF14mmF2.8 R which is what CO is looking for in Lens Correction/Lens/Profile. As it happens this is not to important with this particular lens as it is almost perfectly optically corrected and at least the manufacturers lens correction data seems to have been preserved in the dng. The position is different for Nikon NEF, for instance CO might expect to see Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G if that was the lens used but the DNG converter truncates the lens description to 24.0-120 mm f/4.0 which CO does not recognize. In this case there is no manufacturers lens correction data so CO reverts to generic, as a user one then has to select the correct Profile manually.

    Thanks David. Interesting and useful observations and information.
