    HELP PLEASE ....FUJIFILM Finepix F600 EXR raf RAW file conversion

    Hi, folks I need someone to help me here before I go nuts:

    My best cameras are a SONY A55 and a PANASONIC LX5.....I have no problems at all converting their RAW files to DNGs in ADOBE DNG CONVERTER:


    Very recently I acquired a RAW shooting FUJIFILM FINEPIX F600 EXR compact camera to use as an always in my pocket shooter....GREAT! I thought....until that is....it came to dealing with its quirky RAW files which save with a ...raf file code.

    These raf RAW files won't open in any software but the horrible/nasty ...MY FINEPIX STUDIO....and then after that if I want to process them in my very familiar PHOTOSHOP CS3 raf RAW files won't open.....sooo.........FINEPIX RAW FIE CONVERTER has to convert them in to TIFS which takes an absolute age...its driving me .....NUTS!

    Please is there a way that I can get those FUJI raf RAW files converted in a quick and easy way to work in PS CS3?

    The FUJI camera is a great little tool, but the supplied image software is RUBBISH:

    HELP!

    You could try RawTherapee 4.0.9 its a free program use by Linux users but is available for Windows and MAC users.

    Thank you folks...

    Not much success as yet.

    I have PHOTOSHOP CS3 .....I don't think the ADOBE updates work for it.....unless someone knows better?

    I did download RAWTHERAPEE to my Windows XP Pro PC ...... I get shots in there but then it crashes.

    This is so sad and frustrating because I have a great little all round compact camera that shoots RAW....that aren't compatible with the two main photo editing softwares, namely ....ADOBE BRIDGE and PHOTOSHOP SC3.

    Anyone have any other suggestions please?

    Cheers!

    Go to the Adobe website, & look in the DNG Converter list of cameras covered to see if your F600 is covered ??.....maybe an update to the programme
    might help ?????

    Good luck !!

    Might be worth trying "FastStone" as a stopgap. It's a free download and claims to work with RAF files.

    It allows files to be opened,adjusted then saved as TIFFS, Jpegs, etc.
