ADOBE Improves Detail Rendering for FUJIFILM X-Trans RAW Files in Camera RAW 11.2

Adobe X-Trans Support Improved

Adobe has just released Camera Raw version 11.2, and it is potentially a very important one for Fujifilm X shooters, since it literally says:

Enhance Details is introduced in Adobe Camera Raw 11.2. Powered by Adobe Sensei, Enhance Details produces crisp detail, improved color rendering, more accurate renditions of edges, and fewer artifacts.

Enhance Details is especially useful for making large prints, where fine details are more visible. This feature applies to raw mosaic files from cameras with Bayer sensors (Canon, Nikon, Sony, and others) and Fujifilm X-Trans sensors.

Do make sure to test it and let us know in the comments. Share also comparison images. And here is the link to the Adobe page.

It’s your choice, guys. Do you want to miss the news or be the last one to know, or do you want to be the first and best informed Fujifilm X shooter on earth? If it’s the second one, then make sure to follow FujiRumors on Facebook, Instagram, RSS-feed and Twitter.

Thanks to the FR-reader for letting us know.

Fringer EF/FX Smart Adapters Firmware ver 2.60 Support for Sigma Lenses on Fujifilm X Cameras Added and Improved

Fringer just released Fringer EF-FX Pro and EF-FX adapters’ new firmware ver. 2.60.

It mainly addresses the following issues.

Version 2.60

  1. Fixed PDAF issues for some of the following lens models: Lens didn’t get recognized by the adapter after upgrading lens firmware to version 2.0.
    – Sigma 150-600/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports/Contemporary
  2. Bug fixed: Some telephoto lenses, e.g. EF200/2.8L II, don’t work properly with 2X TC. When setting shutter speed to ‘A’, LCD or viewfinder is always too dark or too bright, so that it’s hard to see the object being shot.
  3. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    Sigma 105/1.4 DG HSM Art
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 1.4X
    Sigma 120-300/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports + 2X
    Sigma 18-200/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    Sigma 17-70/2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary
    EF 135/2L + 1.4X
    EF 135/2L + 2X

Be noted: Before upgrading to V2.60, make sure current firmware version is V2.x. If it’s V1.x, please upgrade to V2.10 first.

Please visit Fringer’s website to download the firmware file and release notes.
