CR2 RAW does not import correctly into AF for iPad

Recommended Posts

CR2 files appear corrupted when opened in AF on iPad Pro (file is first imported straight into Photos on iPad Pro either via card reader or camera wifi). However, the same file imports fine into macOS /Windows version of AF. I've tried this with two cameras and multiple cards - same result.

If converted to TIFF on desktop, it imports back to iOS without issues.

Are your camera models on the supported RAW list for the RAW engine built into iOS that Affinity Photo uses? When you are importing from Photos is the file you're selecting have the RAW icon and if you was to view it in Photos, does it look correct?

Thank you for your reply. 

Yes, cameras are on the list: m5 and 7Dii. 

When imported to Photos, preview looks correct but only because Photos displays JPG version in the library. If I press EDIT, it pulls RAW and it displays incorrectly.

RAW file imported into Photos looks good. When importing to AF a thumbnail image shows RAW symbol in the lower right corner. Once imported into AF the file looks completely off. B4509E9E-A19B-44BE-A863-58F111FCAFED.thumb.jpeg.b44ccbc8e716808d5741ee8a99b4e976.jpeg344CB95A-7D28-44DA-9BD7-D9EBB4F15073.jpeg.c125f61f54e8429b7790c80f20abf43a.jpegC19F48E0-429D-4BB5-8F21-58049CF6BEC0.thumb.jpeg.1f326172a0a91bbfcd24b5941a687eb7.jpeg

I’d suggest loading a couple of your raw files here for moderators to test. I use Canon CR2 without problem.
