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.

DPReview Fujifilm Managers Interview: “No Need to Open X Mount, AI and Global Shutter are the Future, GFX100 Within End of June”

DPReview interviewed Toshi Iida, Makoto Oishi and Shin Udono. Here are the main points (full interview at dpreview here):

Medium Format

  • Full Frame and Medium Format will coexist
  • GFX 50R sales look very promising
  • FF is 1/3 of market in terms of value, slightly growing
  • MF was 1%, but doubled after GFX introduction
  • 70% of MF buyers were coming from other brands, mainly DSLR, and the GFX is their additional system
  • 20% of GFX users are professionals, 80% non-professionals (especially GFX 50R users)
  • Fujifilm wants to increase professional base, also thanks to Capture One support and with future GFX 100
  • Fujifilm GFX 100 should show the potential of medium format
  • FF can reach 70-80 Megapixel
  • GFX lenses designed for 100MP resolution
  • Fujifilm GFX100 will be available before the end of June
  • Fujifilm GFX100 target is commercial photographers, fashion, landscapes, but also more general purpos
  • GFX 100 will shoot at 16bit RAW. Benefit noticeable mostly at low ISO and deep shadow detail. 4 times the amount of data, 14 bit lets you shoot faster, which is appropriate for APS-C
