FUJIFILM has introduced FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO, new free conversion software that allows photographers to convert RAW files while maintaining image quality. Compatible with Mac and PC, image conversion is designed to be fast, as the software uses the camera’s X-Processor Pro engine instead of a computer’s CPU to process files, individually or as part of a batch conversion.

Additional software features include:

  • Image-processing settings are adjustable in the same way as in-camera RAW conversion
  • Before and After images are displayed side by side while changing settings
  • Conversion profiles can saved, loaded or copied onto another RAW image

FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO for Mac is available now; the PC version is scheduled for February 2018 availability.

Additionally, firmware updates were announced for the FUJIFILM GFX 50S and X-T2 and X-T20 cameras. You can read our hands-on review of the GFX-50S.

Here are a few highlights for firmware update v2.0 for the FUJIFILM GFX 50S:

  • Support for FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO
  • Third-party studio flash functionality has been improved
  • New functions have been introduced to improve operation

Here are a few highlights for firmware update v3.0 for the FUJIFILM X-T2:

  • Support for FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO
  • New AF tracking algorithm enhances AF-C to track moving subjects half the size or moving twice as fast as previous cameras
  • Third-party studio flash functionality has been improved

And among the feature updates for the FUJIFILM X-T20 with firmware update v1.1 is touch-panel operation while looking into the EVF.
