Hi There -
The greens thread has been useful, but I thought it would be a good idea to start a new thread with suggestions - whilst RAW support is sketchy, it's nice to share ways of processing these files.
I'll get started:
Using X-T1 RAW files in Aperture
First of all - many thanks to Ario who got me started down this root. I've had some good results like this (and some surprising ones - see below).
First you need to get EXIFTOOL by Phil Harvey - then download and install.
I've taken to doing the conversion on my SD card before importing to Aperture - this will also make it easier for any of you who are not comfortable using terminal.
1. Load Terminal Applications / Utililities / Terminal
2. Stick your Fuji SD card into your computer
3. in terminal type the following:
exiftool -ext RAF -Model='X100s' /Volumes/Untitled/DCIM/101_FUJI/
- better still, cut and paste it - the spaces are all important. . . . after a bit it should say something like:
1 directories scanned
24 image files updated.
What you are doing here is changing the Model name in the RAF file to X100s, which has the same sensor, but which IS supported by Aperture
4. switch to your SD card in finder - delete the 'original' files (or move them somewhere safe if you like). As Chuck so wisely points out, back up any important files properly before starting.
5. Import normally - I choose Both (use RAW as original) (assuming you're shooting jpg and raw).
The only disadvantage is that the exif information in your files will say X100s rather than X-T1 . . . except that most of the time it won't
I really really don't understand this (perhaps Aperture is collecting the exif from the jpg file rather than the RAW file?) - but Aperture is using the RAW file to process as you can see, and it's reporting the camera correctly as the X-T1 - despite having changed the Model Name . . . . and it is changed - if you don't do the exiftool step Aperture won't read the file.
I hope this is useful to people - I'm pleased with the Aperture support,
to prove the point - here is the Garlic shot again with the exif intact.
Here you'll note that the exif Does say X100s - you can't win every time!
However, my feeling about this is that when Aperture finally does support the X-T1 it will be easy to use exiftool to change the Camera Model back again, and then just reprocess the RAW files
All the best
