I ask again, What Version of Silkypix are you using?

The Free Version? or Silkypix Developer Studio Pro or Developer Studio? 

There are several versions of this software.  Don't expect much from a free version of anything that is why it's free.

The included versions of the Silkypix software with Fuji and Pentax are very basic packages, and it would not surprise me if you can't save to prophoto.

In the Full version of the software, you can save to Prophoto, per my screen shots, and you can give the file a custom name.  These screen shots are from the Silkypix Developer Studio software, not the "free" code. 

Here is link to the site where the full code is located.

SilkyPix Developer Studio Pro 7EUS.  Please show me a screenshot that explicitly says ProPhoto. It's not there. 16 bit tiff for retouching is still aRGB.

Wow.

Trust me it's there. As Dennis stated its there. I have exported pretty much everything to prophoto from developer pro.

As Dennis stated. See my previous post with the screen shots.

If you say so. I don't intend to bother with an app that costs nearly a hundred bucks and is so clunky and mystifying . Iridient serves all my RAW needs in a straightforward manner without requiring very much post.
I finally figured out that you have to set "convert to designated space" first. Why would ProPhoto be in the list twice?

If you can't figure out the software's Japanese-centric mindset you lose. It's still the best software for working with RAFs, albeit, slowly.

No, it isn't. Iridient is fast and complete.

Good news for Windows users. Iridient Digital has scheduled a version for this year according to this article off Fujirumours. Should be interesting

Yes, very interesting. Looking forward to some shootouts between Iridient Developer and Capture One. The sharpening options (RL based deconvolution) in ID also are a benefit. CO could do with an upgrade of the sharpening method used (and its integration with Printed output with previews at final output size).

Cheers,
Bart

There is a special US/Canada distributer who has a special discount on now for the upgraded application Silypix Studio now. A 30 day trial is available. There is also a special upgrade from the Camera manufacturer supplied application. I think this is the best option for Fuji users. http://www.silkypix.us

This link was still offering v6 Silkypix for $24 in late November, and I went for it. Looked at it again today, and the offer still seems to be available.

Over two weeks, and I still havenít installed it!

They are offering 6 PRO for $24, which is quite a deal.  I believe it is fully upgradeable to 7 at whatever the usual upgrade price is.

Silkypix is worth serious consideration. I am now using it as my preferred raw software with both a Pentax K1, where it is pretty much essential with pixel shifted files, and a Fuji GFX 50s.

You have to work through the cluttered non-intuitive interface, but with both these cameras, different as the are, it is far superior to lightroom in my opinion.  With GFX files, the decoded raws have less noise, and better colour ( P1, or Film Simulation, Provia for the best reds and to adjust the very slightly cyan cast to some GFX file skies).  Just reduce sharpening from the default 30 to around 15-18 or so.  With Pentax pixel shift files, you simply cannot use Lightroom on a shifted file, but Silkypix understands subject movement - say, a waterfall - and for moving elements of a scene, will compensate appropriately.

Silly name it may have, but it does a good job  ;)

Looks promising, but strictly for those with more time than I have to experiment with.
