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.

Fujifilm X-Trans vs Bayer Sensor Quick Blind Test Comparison: Which One do you Prefer?

X-Trans vs Bayer Blind Test

Little weekend game :)

Since we recently talked about Fuji colors vs Nikon, Sony and Canon, let’s do a fun little (and non scientific) blind test with you guys.

This time we compare the Fujifilm X-T20 X-Trans with the Fujifilm X-T100 Bayer CMOS sensor cameras.

Both cameras were used with the Fujinon XC15-45mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS PZ.

Keep in mind that this is not only a comparison between X-Trans and Bayer, but also a comparison between different processing engines.

I did the test, and my score is 1 to 5 for X-Trans. Only for 1 case I could not see a significant difference, in all other cases I went straight for X-Trans.

To my taste, the color rendition of the Fujifilm X-T100 was in some cases a bit exaggerated and less natural, for example in the cloudy sky or the rusty chain. Also, in my eyes, on the X-T20 green/yellow leaves overall looked more natural and less plasticky.

Maybe that’s due to the more aggressive processing applied by the processor used in Fuji’s Bayer cameras, which is something we have analyzed already back in 2013 here, when we compared the Bayer X-A1 to the X-Trans X-M1.

Ready to test?

Then go to the Chinese site dc.fever and drop your vote.

Fujifilm X-Trans Roundup: Skylum DAM Video and Tutorials, CaptureOne Tutorials & Tips, X-Trans on Lightroom, X RAW STUDIO & More

Fujifilm X-Trans Roundup

I am currently owner of Lightroom (standalone), Picktorial, Iridient and Luminar.

I think I will try Capture One next, since it made huge improvements in 2017 and in many ways is superior to Lightroom.

One day I will leave Lightroom completely, and luckily I have plenty of options to choose from.

So just like you, I try different software, watch tutorials, and try to make up my mind on which one will be the best for my life after Lightroom.

And in my search for the perfect software, I like to share the stuff I watch and study with you in dedicated Fujifilm X-Trans roundups.

Let’s start with the roundup.

The Evolution of Fujifilm Colors from X-Pro1 to Fujifilm X-T3 and Why DPReview RAW Lab Tests Don’t Show Fujifilm Colors

Fujifilm Colors

I am one of the few on this wonderful globe, to have had the privileged to own and shoot with all X-Trans cameras (except the X-Trans 4, until now).

And when in these days I read that the colors on X-Trans 4 might be slightly different from those on X-Trans 3, this does not surprise me at all.

In fact, Fujifilm has always slighlty fine-tuned and changed colors with every Fujifilm X-Trans/processor generation. And they even say it openly here, that they change colors trying to reach “the ideal vision” or “the ideal color reproduction” by taking advantage of new technologies (new sensors/processor).

It’s all about improving Fujifilm colors/film simulations, mostly based on customer feedback.

For example, when people complained that red colors with X-TransII in Velvia are too strong and lose texture too quickly, Fujifilm desaturated the reds a bit with X-Trans III.

So, there is nothing like “THE Fujifilm colors“.

Fujifilm colors change with every new sensor and processor generation. Then it’s up to you to see if they changed for the better or for the worst.

The Problem With DPReview Lab Test

The problem with DPReview lab test is that their Fujifilm X-Trans RAW samples we pixel peeped yesterday don’t show you the Fujifilm colors.

Why?

Because RAW file colors depend on the RAW converter you use (and in case of the X-T3 it’s even just a beta support). And as far as I know, RAWs don’t really have “colors”, but “luminance”. Colors are created during the demosaicing (correct me if I am wrong).

To get the closest results to “real” Fujifilm colors in Lightroom, you would have to apply to the RAW file one of the Fujifilm film simulations presets in Lightroom (Astia for example is great if you want the best skin tones), and then continue to edit your image from there… if there is any need for editing at all, given how amazing Fujifilm film simulations are ;).

Of course, the film simulation profiles in Adobe Lightroom do not match 100% the “in camera” film simulations (or “in X RAW STUDIO”), but they are Adobe’s attempt to get as close as possible to Fujifilm colors, which is already much better than their standard stuff ;) .

So when yesterday some of you compared the RAW file colors, just know that these are not really the “Fuji colors”.

Down below you will find the results of RAW and JPEG from X-Trans I to X-Trans IV, as you find them on DPReview.
