Best RAW Converters for FUJIFILM Files in 2019, Why Capture One is Better than Lightroom (Sometimes) and More Comparisons


Fujifilm RAW Processing

In times, where tons of Fujifilm X shooters are migrating to Capture One Pro 12 (including myself) due to a massive 50% discount, I thought to publish a Capture One Pro 12 centric Fujifilm X Trans roundup.

Personally I currently use the last standalone Lightroom version (which still supports my Fujifilm X-E3) and Capture One Pro 12.

But as soon as I get my next Fujifilm camera (Fujifilm X-Pro3?), I will go all in with Capture One Pro Standalone. The only rent I am willing to pay, is the one for my little apartment, and not for software.

So, this roundup includes comparisons between Capture One Pro 12 and other software. Spoiler: Capture One wins!

Also, you will also find the link to a Capture One Pro 12 guide.

It’s all down below. I hope you can find something useful for you.
