Lightroom 4.4 and Camera Raw 7.4 are now available here.

– The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.4 update includes these enhancements:

Improved demosaic algorithm for better raw file support on cameras with X-Trans sensors. This includes the Fujifilm X-Pro1.

Additional camera support for 23 cameras including the Canon EOS 1D C, Nikon Coolpix A, and Samsung NX300.

Corrections and bug fixes for issues introduced in previous versions of Lightroom.

– Camera Raw 7.4  includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Fujifilm cameras with the X-Trans sensor. This specifically impacts the following cameras:Fujifilm X-Pro1 (*) / Fujifilm X-E1 (*) / Fujifilm X100S / Fujifilm X20 (click here)
(*) Based on user feedback, the default sharpening amount applied to Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Fujifilm X-E1 raw files has been increased between Camera Raw 7.4 Release Candidate and the final Camera Raw 7.4 release. (thx for the link Imgurian)

[UPDATE] Fujirumors posted first rumors about a cooperation between Fujifilm and Adobe to improve image processing of X-Trans back in October, 26 here). Now this cooperation has been officially announced at Fuji’s website here:

“FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) announced that Fujifilm and Adobe Systems Incorporated have been working together to improve image processing of X-Trans and EXR-Sensor based raw captures. X-Trans CMOS has a new type of sensor filter array developed by Fujifilm to improve image quality. The release of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 4.4 and Adobe Camera Raw 7.4 today offers significant improvements in the processing of X-Trans raw files for the X100S, X20, X-Pro1 and X-E1, resulting in better Moire reduction and enhanced performance in color reproduction.

“We worked closely with Fujifilm to increase the quality of image processing of X-Trans and EXR-Sensor based raw captures,” said Tom Hogarty, group product manager, Adobe. “Lightroom 4.4 and Adobe Camera Raw 7.4 demonstrate the results of this cooperation and provide remarkable improvements in the raw file rendering.”

Aperture, Lightroom…Capture One! Finally the Odyssee ends. This is the title of nicolestuppert’s post (read it here) He posted also some LR vs C1 comparison pics: “​So finally after months and weeks I came to the decision that I will work with Capture one & Aperture! Capture One – because of the fantastic RAW Converter & Aperture for the interface, the file managing and the plug-In’s (VSCO, Nik Software) I use.” Check out the Nik Software offer (70% price drop here).

have a great day!

  • I didn’t yet find the perfect NR settings for my X100s in LR4.4. Why are the NR settings null by default?

    Sweet vindication my friends!

    The battle was long, we fought hard and whinged even harder… but the day has come where we no longer have to shy away from the question of RAW support.

    A belated pat on the back for Fuji and Adobe and a big middle finger to all the haters.

    To the editing suite!

  • Nice!

    Is it safe to convert .raf to .dng?
    Will be get Lightroom approximations of Velvia, Provia, Astia, ProNeg?

    Not sure about a real gap btw the release candidate and the official one. I’ll run it tonight and compare with Capture One, i hope for the best cause i have my best tools on LR but i know in advance that in term of raw editors, Capture One is still better… Fellas, my workflow is sof**ked uo since i work in capture one… it’s painfully slow and when i must use some presets LR is so easy, you can’t craft to much when you working with deadlines, that said, i respect and LOVE the great effort of phase one, a lot of pros are working with it and i can imagine why…

  • I just posted some test with LR4.4 and X100s
