  • 25 June 2024 It's Lightroom update time again! See What’s New in Lightroom Classic 13.4, Mobile & Desktop (June 2024)? for the bug fixes and new lens profiles. Warning... this is a minor dot release and does NOT fix some of the bugs introduced in 13.3, so if you reverted to 13.2 due to bugs (e.g. sync issues), we'd suggest you stay there for now.

Issue: When inserting a CFexpress card with photos from my Fuji X-H2 the card gets recognized by LR but klicking on the icon in the import from window results in a black screen. The photo on the card ist there, but no preview ist shown. If I navigate to the folder manually everything shows up fine. Please see video at https://youtu.be/GbX3SBthJnQ.

Anyone else with the same issue?

Best regards Johannes
A couple of items might help to know

• are you shooting raw?
• do you have the latest updates to Lr?

Good point! Normally I am shooting lossless compressed RAW and tried if the same issue appears shooting JPEG. And it does not. If I take one Raw and one JPEG, the preview is visible for the JPEG but not for the Raw .
LR is is the latest version.
Yes, it is listed as supported.
If you see the video, LR is able to show the previews of the RAW files, but only by browsing them through the filesystem not by opening the card directly.
