Here's one photograph of my nephew. Had shot this a while ago, went back to process it today. To be honest, the SOOC Jpeg was so good that I didn't bother processing the RAW. Yeah, the BG sucks, I should probably have managed it a bit better .

The image is underexposed and I didn't have time to use a reverse ND. I will post the original file as a JPEG. I don't have enough knowledge or experience at this point.

If you want to give it a shot, I would be interested in what you can do with this.

I'll give it a shot, but I can't do anything with a JPEG version...I'd need the RAW file to try and extract some detail in the blown channels.

Jordan,

OK. I only reduced the RAW file to a JPEG to upload the file. All of the information should be there to the best of my knowledge. If you can't work from that, how do I upload a RAW file to the forum?

You did blow the red channel a little bit too much for full recovery of data, but I got a lot more out of it. In lightroom, the highlight and shadow recovery sliders are your friends. The X-trans RAW files are calibrated so that they don't have quite as much highlight headroom as some other cameras, but the files have huge dynamic range, which means you can push the shadows a TON...so err on the side of underexposure. The red channel also clips a little earlier than the green and blue on this sensor. Wish Fuji would put in an RGB histogram.

Anyway, here's what I got with a few quick adjustments on the RAW:

Jordan,

Thank you. I knew I could pull more out of the shadow area and could have increased the exposure more. I just wasn't sure how far to go.

I decided to go back and try my hand at this image again of the Sunset in front of my house in Pennsylvania taken with the X-E1 and my Leica 35-70mm f4 Vario Elmar lens processed with LR 4.4. I increased the vibrancy a slight amount more, opened up the shadow a slight amount more and increased the contrast a little.

I think that I like this rendering.

Well, DpReview compared the new Lightroom candidate to Capture One and out-of cam Jpg's here: http://www.dpreview.com/articles/1550547764/adobes-fujifilm-x-trans-sensor-processing-tested

Looks like LR is now much much improved, and has less artefacts than CaptureOne. LR may look softer, but really has higher resolution than CaptureOne. Silkypix 5 still has the least artefacts and the highest resolution, but LR has so much better highlight and shadow recovery, better user interface etc. A step in the right direction, perhaps it will be tweaked even further before full release?

Please, PLEASE, Apple-- give us RAW support. Shooting jpgs and editing in Aperture works fine (or at least I think my samples show that), but I'd love to get even more DR headroom via RAW, and not have to set up parallel workflows for my cameras.

Great image, the colour tone works well with the subject. What did you develop the image with (or is it SOOC jpg)?

My EOS and FD adapters arrived today, so now I've got a lot more lenses I can use on the X-E1.


This is interesting - there are adapters for Canon lenses to the X-E-1?

Please tell me more (I'm seriously considering an XE-1 and have a few Canon lenses.

Yes. They are dumb adapters, though, so are best used do manual EF lenses (like my Rokinon, or in conjunction with other adapters (like my OM to EF adopter)). With AF Canon EF lenses, you won't have AF or aperture control.

FD, of course, works fine since all the lenses are manual anyway.

You know, the thing about being able to shoot in the dark is huge pupils...
