DEALS

These are the last 3 days where you can stack the X-E1/X-PRO1 offer with the following XF lenses,[shoplink 12888]14mm[/shoplink], [shoplink 12889]35mm[/shoplink], [shoplink 12891]18mm[/shoplink], [shoplink 12887]18-55mm[/shoplink], [shoplink 12890]60mm[/shoplink], and save a lot of money. If you are one of those out there who was waiting to see how the X-M1 would be and decided that a smaller and cheaper body with WiFi, bigger, better and tiltable LCD and EXR-II processor is not enough to justify the missing viewfinder, then this could be the right moment to make the switch to the X.

Check the crazy-X-superkit deals at AmazonUS, BHphoto and Adorama [Adorama offers a lot of accessories]

If you decide to switch and buy the X-E1/X-PRO1 with lenses, then you should definitely purchase Rico’s book too. It will make your switch a lot easier! Mastering the FUJIFILM X-Pro1” (Kindle Edition) (Apple iBook Store) (German version)

Iridient Developer (2.1.1): New native X-Trans support + Iridient (2.1) vs ACR (thevisualexperience)

Share

I’ve already told you that Iridient Developer (MAC only) now supports X-Trans RAW files here. The latest 2.1.1 version is now available with all “new, native demosaic processing for the Fuji X-Trans models!” Check it here and download the free trial here!  “Fuji: X-Pro1, X-E1, X20 and X100S now natively supported by new demosaic process in addition to existing support using Apple RAW libraries“.

Iridient Developer vs ACR

thevisualexperience made a comparison between ACR and Iridient (2.1). The question here: “is it worth in a Lightroom based workflow, to add this other piece of software or not?

Here are some of his findings: “White balances are different. Many differences in color rendering btw the two RAW processors […] The IRIDIENT output, in the same conditions as ACR, give a darker and more contrasty image. […] There is some “vignetting” in the IRIDIENT output. […] The details extracted from the RAW by IRIDIENT  blow out ACR

Now, it’s worth to add Iridient in your workflow? You can find the answer in part1 and part2 of his review (includes also a nice video comparison).

enjoy your day

Fujifilm X-M1: Pre-order at AmazonUK

Share

 

The X-M1 is now available for pre-order at AmazonUK here.

You can read pixelogist thoughts about the new Fuji camera here. From the conclusions:

“For the price, the X-M1 looks to be an excellent product. The feature list speaks for itself: the awesome X-Trans sensor, the EXR II processor, fast 5.6fps shooting, 1080p video with the option for an external mic, built-in WiFi, and even an improved contrast detect AF system that is supposed to be very fast. All that in a beautifully designed rangefinder-style body that goes for $699. Or $799 for the kit However, I didn’t’ love everything about it. The lack of any sort of viewfinder will be a big negative for some. Me included. That’s part of the whole draw of the X-series mirrorless system, isn’t it?”
