Scanning with Fuji: RAF vs DNG

Is it okay to use Fuji’s RAW format when inverting negatives in NLP, or is it advisable to convert them to DNG first?

Thanks in advance!


You can use either.

I use a Fuji XT2, and I typically use “Photo > Enhance Details” first (which creates a DNG file), and then I convert the DNG file. But there is nothing wrong with just using the original RAF file – I just find that in some cases, using enhanced details helps prevent “worm artifacts” that you can see in some situations with Lightroom’s default interpretation of RAF files.

Hope that helps!
