It’s great that we can finally import photos from an SD card on iOS. But why on earth are the photo previews cropped to a square aspect ratio???? This makes it impossible to selectively import photos.

They're not on mine. Are you sure you don't have your camera set to square ratio? That would explain why the built-in previews would be square.

Have tested as well (on my iPhone ) and format is rectangular like on the camera.

Update: Thanks for checking, all. I tested some different cameras and formats, and this seems to be happening only with RAF files from Fuji X-Pro3. JPG files, and RAW files from other cameras do show the proper aspect ratio.

(Is there a way to update the title of the original post?)

Interesting! Because I have tested it with a uncompressed RAF raw file created by my X-T20.
Have you used an uncompressed RAF as well?

Yeah they're uncompressed. RAF files from an X100F preview just fine as well.

I will reword/resubmit this as a bug report. Thanks for your help!
