Using RAW with a Fuji S5000

Hi guys,

I know the RAW topic has been covered many times, but I can't seem to find the answer to my query.

I am using a Fuji S5000 and I am keen to start using RAW. Problem is - software to read it ! The software which came with my camera seems to convert it directly into TIFF (or JPEG, can't remember) with no options at all, which seems to miss the point.

I have downloaded a trial version of Capture One LE but it doesn't seem to "see" the RAW files ??? It will show me images of JPEG files which are on my computer, but not RAW.

The other option would be Raw Shooter Essentials, but a) this doesn't seem to work on my computer and b) I don't believe it supports Fuji.

Does anybody have any other options for me, or perhaps any ideas what I am doing wrong in C1 ??

Thanks !!!

C1 and Rawshooter don't support the Fuji RAW format.

I used to have an S5000 and used the RAW converter that came with Photoshop elements 3. That worked fine.

Thanks for your reply, Paul, at least I know that it's not something I'm doing wrong ! Unfortunately I have only got Elements 2 or Photoshop 7 ... neither of which seem to help.

Does anyone else have any other suggestions ?

Thanks !

As there's now a Photoshop Elements 4 you could probably pick up a PSE3 at a good price.

You might wanna ask your question on this Fuji s5000 specific forum, there is a wealth of knowledge from fuji owners on there.

I may still consider it, thanks - but I have just been given a Canon 350D by my very clever husband (he knows how to make his home life comfortable Wink so it does rather resolve my problem !
