    I wonder if anyone else with a Fujifilm X-Pro 1 or X-E1 and who uses LR4, has experienced the same problem as me when importing files.

    All my .RAF files from my X-E1 are cropped when imported into LR4. They are all cropped from 4896x3264 pixels to 4896x2760 pixels. The shortest side is cropped equally at each end. This happens despite there being no import setting to do this. It only happens with my X-E1. The .RAF files from my Fujifilm X-10 and the .NEF files from my Nikon D300S both have their files imported without any cropping.

    This makes me think that maybe the issue is an in-camera setting but I can't for the life of me think what it may be.

    I should say that fixing the problem is not all that difficult. A reset of one followed by a synchronisation of the rest sorts it but its just a bit of a mystery what is causing the problem.

    Any advice or insights would be welcome.

    Thanks

    It would appear that you have got the camera set on 16x9 in format settings.

    Re-set it to 3x2 or 4x3

    Thanks for the reply Roger. I should have aid that I normally shoot RAW. With "Image Quality" set at RAW the "Image Size" function becomes disabled thus making it impossible to change the aspect ratio setting.

    If I shoot JPEGs then I have no import problems and the files display with the appropriate aspect ratio.

    Sorry for not providing all the info'

    I used to have this problem with my X10 and Photoshop CS5. It sounds like Fujifilm have updated the RAW format again, and you're waiting for Adobe to catch up. The only way I got around it, was to work in JPG mode until I bought Lightroom 4 - you may have to wait for the next update, I'm afraid...

    Ah! That could be it. Looks like I'll just have to be patient. Thanks.

    You could try Adobe DNG converter, once in DNG format lightroom will be fine.

    Hi Stephen (steveh5). I thought you might like to know that I just tried your suggestion but the DNGs were still imported as cropped files in exactly the same dimensions as mentioned earlier. Not really a big deal though because LR4 easily re-sets the raw files (whether RAF or DNG) but I would like to know why it's happening.
