dmcgaughey has written about it in his post Fuji X-Trans RAW conversion conundrums and delivers some nice evidence on how bad it is.
What I will do until Adobe releases a better conversion algorithm:
- Shoot RAW & JPG
- Don’t convert RAW to DNG
- Do some in-camera raw conversion
I still believe Fuji should have included native DNG support in their X-line of cameras (like Hasselblad & Leica) and work more closely with Adobe and other software companies to bring perfect raw conversion to their products.
Please, Fuji & Adobe, do your homework.
Update 11.01.2013: Fuji Rumors writes that Fuji and Adobe are indeed working together on the issue! Let’s hope it’s true.
Update 28.02.2013: Adobe has released LR 4.4 RC and the problem seems to be fixed. Fujirumors has a nice roundoup.
Lr4.4 ACR7.4 RCs now available. Improved Fuji X-Trans support included: blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjourn…
