Fuji XT5 HIF Format



  • Martin Tolley

    According to the userguide at only .RAF files are currently supported for XT5

  • Stackin

    I have an X-H2 and was using HIF files until I recently purchased Capture One. It appears that Capture One only supports 8 bit HIF files and those created on the Fuji X-H2 / X-T5 are 10 bit files. 

    I'm a little disappointed that Capture One does not fully support this standard as the Fuji files have better colour depth and are half the size of similar JPG files.

    Is there any update on the situation?

    I am on Capture one 23 and the latest version of OSX.

    Same question here -- it's disappointing C1 still can't import Fuji HIF files.


  • Chris Barker

    I remain disappointed that I cannot use HEIF from my X-T5.

  • Paul Pound

    I have the same problem on windows 11.  I can view the .hif files from my xt5 in windows photo viewer but I can't import them into capture one pro 23.

  • Corbett Hix

    I agree with the above. This is really disappointing for professional software. In addition to the reasons above, HIF will likely replace JPG as a standard. Let us know WHEN 10Bit will be available, no more silence!

    Same issue! I was wanting to switch from Photo Mechanic + to C1, but lose all compatibility with the HIF files in my catalog. Would be great if C1 could catch up with the other main players in this area.

    Just crashed into this, thought my files were corrupt!
    Z8 .HIF extension, don't appear in C1 at all. Had to resort to Lightroom  for this one :/

    It's been more than a year since xh2/xt5 release when I bought the licence... only to get disappointed. Probably should have stayed an adobe customer and use Lightroom until c1 is feature complete.
