Well, keep you wallet into position...
I read posts on this forum that came straight from the horse's mouth that X-Pro1 support is coming. To be more precise: in this thread.
Regarding the X-E1 the comms were not that explicit, but you should keep faith when you read between the lines. I am pretty confident that Phase One has the right focus here, to use our kind of language.
Message to the Phase One management team: We all understand that coming up with the key to unlock the potential of the Fujifilm X-Trans sensor is a very daunting task. Having spent my career in development, I understand the difficulties.
However, I think it would be prudent for the team to issue periodic updates as to the progress, as difficult as it may be to do under the circumstances. You have a large group of dedicated followers who have confidence in your abilities to come through with the right solutions. You owe it to them to keep them apprised of the situation. If you are at a stage where you are confident a solution is eminent but much further testing is required, please let us know. If there are still huge obstacles to be overcome but work is continuing, we would all appreciate hearing about that.
Capture One has a very good reputation and I'd suspect that most people would happily wait a little longer for a high quality conversion of the X-Trans data. Communicating progress with the customer base would help with the mounting frustration that some people may be feeling, just don't promise the earth.

We have access to the X-Pro as well as the X-E1 Fujifilm cameras. We would be happy to perform beta testing of the Capture One raw conversion software for Fujifilm X-Trans sensor cameras. Lionel, I cannot contact you via email since you don't have contact information in your profile.
Any news on release, after all it was P1 representatives who raised customer expectations on Dec 6th with a ....real soon now, and then on the 18th with a........Well, keep you wallet into position PS. I'd eagerly beta test....
I use C1 as my primary raw platform for all my camera systems (IQ160, P25+, Aptus 65, D800, D600) due to the need for LCC support for my tech cameras and general flexibility and performance of the converter in pulling out the best colour and detail from those systems. However, I'm stuck with my X-Pro1 & X-E1 files and currently have to shoot both RAF & JPG and use LR as my other converter just for those files - a very frustrating situation as I shoot a lot of street and travel using the Fuji's and a single tool would really, really help! It doesn't help that LR's RAF conversions aren't that great - reds bleed out horribly in urban lighting shots for me with no detail such that I will use jpgs instead of raws as a starting point.
If anyone has examples of superior red processing or would like to try some files to test I can provide some test examples.
I have also sent you an email to beta test the Fuji support. My X-E1 is all packed up and ready to be returned, but if Capture One can process the RAF files well enough, I might keep it. Hopefully I can test the beta before I have to return the camera.
I am new to the forum and was going to post to find out about a beta, but now i see all of that is below. At anyrate I am elliot stern and hope to learn a lot from all of you. Thanks and a happy holiday season. Elliot Stern
