Je ne peux pas traiter les fichiers .ARW

Recommended Posts



Tout d'abord, excusez-moi, mais je ne sais pas l'Anglais:(


Je viens d'acheter un Sony a7R ILCE-7RM2


Je ne peux pas traiter les fichiers .ARW avec Photoshop CS 5 :( ni avec lightroom 5


Quel très bon logiciel permettrait de les traiter convenablement



Je suis sur OSX mac 10.8.4

Photoshop CS5


Un grand merci

What good software would treat them properly

Capture One Express est gratuit, très fonctionnel et très bon dans sa version de base (pour débloquer les fonctionnalités avancées il faut acheter une licence), sinon il te faut mettre à jour Photoshop/Lightroom. Si tu étais habitué à Lightroom et si tu gères tes catalogues avec, c'est peut-être le plus simple.





Capture One Express is a free software, very functionnal and a nice performer in its free version (to unlock the advanced fonctionnalities, you have to buy a license). Upgrading PS/LR would enable you to read your ARW too, and if you were used to it and the cost of the licence doesn't matter, it may be the most reasonnable choice.

moi aussi j'ai essayé de "développer" ces fichiers ARW.

J'ai téléchargé la nouvelle version Image Data Converter et j'ai une version non officielle de Lightroom 7.

Ben c'est horrible, je n'arrive pas à obtenir AU MOINS la même qualité que le jpg.

Oui, je sais, hors Raw point de salut, paraît-il.

Du coup je me fous complètement de ces trucs compliqués, ça ne m'intéresse pas de passer une ou deux heures sur un même fichier vu que je n'exposerai jamais ni n'utiliserai mes photos pour quoi que ce soit, donc les magnifiques jpg de mon A7rII me comblent et f... the rest.

Photoshop 5, Capture NX2, LightRoom 7 et Aperçu, sur iMac 24" 3,06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, El Capitan, tout ça c'est hyper largement suffisant pour un simple photographe qui prend du simple plaisir à faire des photos.

Si tu veux persévérer dans le Raw, bon courage.

I reply in English and hope you can do a machine translation.


Cardinob is correct. While you can process A7 files in Lightroom, their camera profiles are not perfect for Sony. In my opinion you lose a lot in the treatment of colour tonality.


Therefore a better option will be to use Lighroom as a catalogue by importing images there. Then you can open the images you want to process in CaptureOne for Sony. It is free and has much better treatment of the raw files. You can even do a basic development in CaptureOne and imoprt it to Lightroom as a tiff. Then you'll get a better starting point than if you let Lightroom develop the raw file.


Of course, it is perfectly possible to get good results with Sony files in Lightroom only. It just takes more manual fine-tuning and the final result may not be quite as good as CaptureOne.

    • I mostly see posterization artifacts, which are the result of lossy compressed RAW files (or bad jpeg conversion). Unfortunately, the A6400 doesn't offer uncompressed or lossless compressed RAW. The noise might indeed result from the smaller sensor than what you're used to. If you're not shooting at max aperture, you could try shooting at wider aperture and lower ISO. When you're not shooting at max aperture, fullframe versus APS-C shouldn't matter much in terms of ISO-performance combined with depth of field: at the same ISO and aperture value, fullframe offers better noise performance but with a narrower depth of field. This can be offset by choosing a larger aperture and lower ISO on the APS-C camera. If you want a fullframe camera the size of an A6400, try the A7C(ii).
    • ..unfortunately, the lighting was correct. The shot required deeper shadows. The K1 ff didnt have these banding issues [yes, I know the sensor is larger]. The film shots had details in the same light. The sony files, both the jpg and raw, had this banding/noise - with NO retouch or post adjustments [straight out of the camera]. the camera was purchased new a few years ago and I am trying to determine if there is something wrong, or the settings are wrong, or the camera just cant handle this kind of lighting [studio + softbox]. No shadow detail is one thing... banding/noise in the shadows is unacceptable. Does sony have a body this size that is FF ? Im wondering if that would make a difference..  dw
    • The root causes for banding are uneven lighting, incorrect exposure settings, or compression artefacts or certain kinds of artificial lighting, especially LED lights. Also the lens used plays a role, I have noticed it more with my sharpest lenses, looks like they outresolve the sensor when I have a uniform blue sky. There is more than one solution, and ultimately post-processing, but the root cause has to be identified first.
