Hi! Please include the Support of Hasselblads 3f-Files in Adobe Camera Raws! These Files were supported until a few Weeks ago, but with recent ACR-Updates the Support is gone. Those who use Hasselblad or Imacon-Scanners need those Files for their Raw-Workflow!
Thanks!

Which version of Camera Raw are you using where the profiles disappeared?

Also, what platform are you on? (just in case that makes a difference)

Hi! I use Win 7 (64bit) on a PC, ACR Release Candidate 6.6 (6.5 didn't recognize the 3f-Files either) and an Imacon Precision ii Scanner (Imacon is Hasselblad now). The 3f-(or fff) Files are the Raw Files that come out of the Imacon-Scanners (or the newer Hasselblad X1 or X5-Scanners) as well as the Hasselblad Digibacks.
Thanks!

ACR 6.5 and later should read 3FR files from the Hasselblad digital backs, as well as FFF files exported from Phocus software.

I don't use Phocus. I use Hasselblads Flexcolor-Software. Why can't ACR open these 3f-Files straight into Photoshop (like it did until two months ago)???

It does work (if the 3F-plugin is installed as it had to be before).
You need to open the file from Photoshop and then (after selecting your file!) change the format-dropdown in the open file dialog from "camera raw" (which comes up automatically when you select a 3F file) to "imacon 3f".

I had the same problem and I can confirm it is working now on CS5.1 with ACR6.6.

and by the way: scanner 3F files and digiback 3F files are two totally different formats.
