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.

Capture One for Fujifilm

Now that Phase One fully supports Fujifilm (and film simulation support already announced to come too), Capture One Pro is quickly finding its way on the computers of many Fujifilm X Shooters (mine included).

One of the Fuji X shooters, who enjoys to Capture One, is Omar (video above). He compares Capture One to Lightroom and Luminar. But there are many more, so high time for a Capture One specific roundup.

Another day, and another breaking news here on fujirumors.com ;).

Adobe has just released the DNG Converter 11.0 with support for the Fujifilm X-T3. You can download it for Windows here and Mac here.

Thanks to the DNG converter, it is now possible to convert X-T3 RAW files to DNG and work with them in Lightroom.

Another workaround to finally edit your Fuji X-T3 RAW files in Adobe, is to get Iridient X Transformer and convert X-T3 files to DNG using Iridients superior X-Trans demosaicing.

And if you consider leaving Lightroom, Capture One 11 now offers a standalone Fujifilm version.
