FR-readers roundup: a year with the X-PRO1, 60mm review, NYC and wedding photography

– Khoral: “Hello! Thanks for the blog, that’s my main source for Fuji news. Just did a post you might be interested into, my personal feelings after a year of use [click here to read the article].  Cheers! Khoral” From the conclusions: “I have a great time with the X-Pro1 and never miss my DSLR. The X-Pro1 is more compact, discreet, delivers top quality shots all the time. The only thing that would make me regret buying it is… the X-Pro2, granted it provides more accurate AF.

– Lorenzo” […]I suggest my profile ( http://500px.com/LorenzoTazzioli ): All last pictures are taken with X-Pro1 (with different lens) and x100. And soon I will upload new 18-55 photos. Thanks ”

– Gergely: “Dear Patrick, I wrote a little review about the 60mm macro, for nature photographers, with many pictures. If you are interested, please feel free to post it! 60mm macro review. And I have a late X-E1 review for nature photographers too. X-E1 review (click here).” Here is another one who sold his Nikon.

– Nick: “I am a professional wedding photographer. I was based out of Richmond Virginia until a few weeks ago and now I am based out of Manhattan. About one month ago I bought my first fuji. A used x100 limited edition black from B&H. Everything was in great condition except I recently discovered the little front thread ring missing. (hear thats a common piece for people to lose. Anyway the point in writing was that last night I did a blog post of some of what I have shot here in NYC my first few weeks. Since all the photos are from my x100 I thought I’d let you know incase you wanted to check it out and share with your readers. Most are from Raw some jpeg some without the wide angle attachment some with.” Nickkessler.com  – x100 in NYC

Evert: “hi Patrick, First, my compliments with Fujirumors.com! I’ve been following the site for a few months now and I’m really enjoying it :) It might’ve been the trigger to get a Fuji X100s (and who knows what’s next in the future…) Anyway, I though it’d be nice to share a link of a recent wedding I shot as second shooter (I’m a professional photog shooting weddings and commercial events and portraits), but not with my Canon kit: I’ve shot it completely using the Fuji X100s. It was a remarkable enjoyable experience with great results I think. My opinion? Fuji mirrorless could be a really great alternative for a complete DSLR kit for wedding- and event photographers. Here’s the link (translated version). all the best and good luck with the site!
Best regards,

The source was right! Now start downloading and leave your feedback in the comments. Download LR 4.4 here. or Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw RC 7.4 here.

Rico Pfirstinger updated his RAW converter comparison with two samples that were processed with Lightroom 4.4RC. Click here, read the article, and see the images.

There is also the first dpreview test: “In the ACR 7.3 rendering, the foliage takes on a distinct ‘watercolor’ appearance, and the white text of the sign is ‘filled-in’ green. As you can see, the new processing approach in ACR 7.4 RC offers substantial improvements in both areas.” (thx MJr)

Lightroom 4.4 Release Candidate and Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 7.4 include a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Fujifilm cameras with the X-Trans sensor.  This specifically impacts the following cameras:
