Capture One Pro 12 with FUJIFILM Film Simulations Released and TESTED vs Lightroom and In Camera

Capture One Pro 12

If you were waiting for Capture One Pro to add Fujifilm film simulation support, well, then your day to get the newly released Capture One Pro 12 has come! And of course you save 10% with code AMBFR on the standalone version, and 5% with code AMBFR on the subscription model.

NOTE: Apparently film simulations work only with cameras that feature an X-Processor Pro or X-Processor 4, so X-Pro2, X-T2, X-T20, X-H1, X-T3, X-E3, X100F, GFX50S and GFX5oR. Check out the full list here.

If you purchased Capture One Pro 11 from the 1st of November and later, you will get a free upgrade to Capture One Pro 12.

But Capture One Pro 12 adds more than just Fujifilm film simulation profiles.

Improvements, new features and new tools in Capture One 12

  • Powerful, refined interface
  • Revamped menu system
  • Luminosity masking
  • Linear Gradient Mask
  • Radial Gradient Mask
  • Redesigned Keyboard Shortcut manager
  • New plug-in ecosystem

Film Simulation Comparison

I have made a quick comparison between in-camera, Lightroom and Capture One Pro film simulation, based on the last Capture One Beta software available. I will re-test it with the final version, and update this article, if I see relevant changes.

IMPORTANT NOTES

NOTE 1: Images are compressed for web use. Hence, you might notice artifacts in some images
NOTE 2: I have bumped up the “Light Falloff” slider in Capture One Pro 12 to match the vignetting of Lightroom and In-Camera
NOTE 3: I can apply ETERNA to my Fujifilm X-E3 in Capture One, but since I can’t create ETERNA files in my Fuji X-E3 or in Lightroom, I will skip this comparison

IC = In Camera
C1 = Capture One
LR = Lightroom

CONCLUSIONS

Both, Capture One and Lightoom, make a very good job.

However, looking at the high-resolution images on my retina display, I consider Capture One film simulations a bit more faithful to the original Fujifilm film simulations, since Lightroom tends to add a tiny bit too much warmth to the images.

There are only two film simulations, where the warmer Lightroom images are a slightly more faithful to the original Fuji film simulations: Acros and Monochrome.

Keep in mind I used a Beta C12 version, and Phase One might have fine tuned it further in the meantime.

SAMPLES (and What’s NOT Included)

Here is the In-Camera vs Capture One vs Lightroom Fujifilm film simulation comparison.

For the sake of your readability (and page loading time), I compared all film simulations, except for Monochrome Standard/Y/G/R, Acros R/G/Y and Pro Neg Hi.

I have all the comparisons done, so if you absolutely insist, I can upload them. But I think the images down below already show how good Capture One’s film simulations are. And you can always download the free 30 days Capture One Pro 12 trial, and play around with them by yourself.

And beware: those who ask in the comments for a Sepia comparison, will be immediately banned ;).

With that said, these are boring images (the ones I am proud of I share them on my Instagram), but I think they are good images to compare the film simulations.

Fringer EF/FX Smart Adapters Firmware ver 2.60 Support for Sigma Lenses on Fujifilm X Cameras Added and Improved

Fringer just released Fringer EF-FX Pro and EF-FX adapters’ new firmware ver. 2.60.

It mainly addresses the following issues.

Version 2.60

  1. Fixed PDAF issues for some of the following lens models: Lens didn’t get recognized by the adapter after upgrading lens firmware to version 2.0.
    – Sigma 150-600/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports/Contemporary
  2. Bug fixed: Some telephoto lenses, e.g. EF200/2.8L II, don’t work properly with 2X TC. When setting shutter speed to ‘A’, LCD or viewfinder is always too dark or too bright, so that it’s hard to see the object being shot.
  3. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    Sigma 105/1.4 DG HSM Art
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 1.4X
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 2X
    Sigma 18-200/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    Sigma 17-70/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    EF 135/2L + 1.4X
    EF 135/2L + 2X

Be noted: Before upgrading to V2.60, make sure current firmware version is V2.x. If it’s V1.x, please upgrade to V2.10 first.

Please visit Fringer’s website to download the firmware file and release notes.

Fujifilm Camera Remote App: Which Improvements Would You Like? POLL

Fujifilm Camera Remote

I think we all agree, if I say that the Fujifilm camera could definitely need some improvements.

Personally I use it for geotagging (I wrote a geotagging with Fujifilm tutorial here), transfer images to smartphone, remote control my camera (rarely), and for these basic functions it works just fine.

However, other apps like Cascable show how much more such a camera App can actually do.

Now FR-reader Uwe contacted me, asking if I could launch a poll about Fujifilm’s camera remote app. And since your participation and contributions are the spine column of FujiRumors, and I am so greatful for your help, I am happy to share Uwe’s requested poll here on FujiRumors.

Now word, to the community :)
