p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · X-Pro1 RAW development


I am new to this camera. I have the 35mm and 14mm lenses. In CS6 (latest ACR down loaded), there are no lens corrections for this camera or lenses. I have read that the Fuji lens profiles built into the camera firmware will make automatic corrections if shooting JPGs, but I prefer RAW. What is everyone using? I tried the supplied Silky Pix, but it is not obvious to me if it automatically fixes lens faults.
Thanks in advance.

I use the supplied SilkPix just to convert from RAW to TIFF.
All the settings are all minimized or off.
I also use dcraw and Capture One Pro in this manner.
I've been trying the free version of LightZone, though, I see it uses an older version of dcraw.
I tend not to use ACR on RAWs from FujiFilm X-E1.
Supposedly Iridient Developer for the Mac is the best, if there was a PC version, you can be sure I would have it.

I compared capture one, Iridient Develper, Lightroom/ACR and Silkypix. I Bought Iridient. It just produces the best files for my Xpro1. Works very well with my RAW files from my old and dated X100 too. I spoke to Brian of Iridient about my issues with my D800 files not being as good and after loading the correct camera profile, its excellent with my D800.
If you have a Mac to use, it's $75 well spent.

Iridient Developer simply uses Apples raw engine, like with Aperture, to support X-Trans. You'll get better detail than with ACR, although you do weird green/purple artifacts and speckle-y dots in some areas from time to time.

This.

I don't quite get the draw of Iridient over Aperture, but I haven't spent any time really digging into Iridient. For me, Aperture has by far the best workflow of any system for shooting/organizing/de-mosaicing of any similar system-- except for C1 Pro when shooting tethered (MFDB).

As far as I'm concerned, Apple RAW is leaps and bounds better than anything else out there for XTrans at this point-- and that includes the in-camera JPG engine, which is quite good. For most shooting, the SOOC jpg and Adobe RAW funkiness isn't a big issue, but it's a bigger issue than the high-contrast speckles Apple RAW produces.

Aperture for 90% w/ NIK plugins for the remaining specific situations, particularly B&W and area adjustments of exposure/contrast (which is, frankly, brilliant in NIK... I wish Aperture did this without needing a plugin and kept the RAW alive) is a great combo.

Actually, it doesn't. You can use it if you want, but from version 2.1.1 there's a new demosaicing algorithm that reportedly works very well:

^^^ That's pretty interesting. Would love to see an Iridient "native" vs. Iridient Apple RAW on the same file.

Maybe if I have a chance....
