While the Fuji JPEG engine is incredible, and I used it until Aperture support for RAW was implemented-- I find that my output from RAW via Aperture or Iridient is a significant improvement compared to the JPEGS. This is particularly so with DR, microcontrast, and sharpness control.

This was generally the reverse when I used the ACR or C1 RAW engines. In many cases, camera JPEG was better and I couldn't match or exceed it in a total way. But some of this is down to my high familiarity with Aperture after leaving ACR almost a decade ago.



Good to know. I recently switched to mac and debating on whether or not to get Aperture.


Do keep in mind that Apple has really fallen behind Adobe (Aperture vs Lightroom) when it comes to available tools-- and seems to be taking forever for the 3-to-4 (or X) upgrade. Apple does keep the RAW support relatively current, and does implement significant things in point-updates. But no lens profiles for distortion correction? That should have been implemented ages ago.

I still prefer Aperture for workflow-- by far. And I like the conversions best.




Yes, agree. After reading up some more, I see a ton of complaints due to apples lack of updates for aperture.

Thank you...

I also strongly prefer Aperture, but Apple has ignored it for so long that I uninstalled it. My love for Adobe can fit in a very small place, so *any* decent competition would make me switch, but Apple's pro-treatment has me frustrated.

Got my hands on a 14mm 2.8 last week. Been enjoying playing with it.

Michael49 "wrote: Nice Golden" Thanks and same to you as well!

MagicNikon: Great shots with the 14 2.8. I just picked one up on the buy/sell and it arrives on Monday. I had one rented one for a vacation and was really impressed with it. Going to NYC next weekend and looking forward to giving it a good amount of time.

Gorgeous! I've been to Morro Bay once, in the evening. Got some good shots.

Thank you, Jman13 (and Rob_O). Photographically speaking, it's hard to go wrong at Morro Bay.

This is a teaser from Sunday.


Family Fun - Muttart by Camtography, on Flickr

Did a family shoot, taken with the 35mm wide open. And with the new firmware update I had no issues locking onto my subjects. It actually worked well shooting kids!

Also, I just got a hold of the Helios 58mm F2.0, not bad but with the peeking I found it difficult to shoot people, but it's really enjoyable to use none the less.

Edit: I ordered the Nikon 105 2.5 non AI as well because I can't afford the 55-200...yet!

I love how that little hand is stretching up and grabbing the ledge, didn't catch it the first time I looked at the picture! I kinda wish the mom(?) was cropped out, or placed more into the frame though. Overall a good picture wich I bet will be valued in the future.

Jochen, welcome back! That's really beautiful. Great tones.
Rob_O, very nice set from Vienna, especially the third. Great colors and processing in all.
Oldraven, that's beautiful.
Camtography, cute! I agree with everything jshalvorsen wrote.


Back from three days in Sweden. Fantastic weather for being out, but not so good for photography (not a cloud in the sky most of the time), so I didn't take many landscapes. Found a nice abandoned farm house though where the bright sunlight worked well.

X-E1 and Fuji 14mm as usual. This lens amazing and have very little distortion (if any). Nice straight lines. Of course it can cause normal wide angle distortion though, as can be seen in #2 and 3. The windows weren't this wide in real life. However, I wanted to take in all of the scenes and the rooms were small, so it couldn't be avoided. Maybe stitching would have worked, but I have tried that in small rooms before and it's really difficult and takes a lot of time, which I didn't have here.
