    sebas1430 reacted to CatsAreGods in 70-300 lens arrived a week early!   
    Some handheld indoor shots at 300mm...first one at 1/5 second ISO 800, shot of my kit lens at ISO 1600 and (wait for it) 1/2 second exposure! X-S10 IBIS FTW!

    sebas1430 reacted to CatsAreGods in Question about lack of weather sealing   
    All I can say is what I went through in my own head before buying mine. I've had a number of fairly decent cameras over the years, both analog and digital, and shot in lots of different conditions including rain and snow and sand. I never even heard of a "weather-sealed camera" before a few years ago, but I never had any trouble because I always protected my camera with my outerwear or even plastic bags when necessary.
    I've carried a few disposable camera rain covers in my bag for the last 6 years or so, but never had the occasion to take them out of their package. But I'm sure that if I got caught in a downpour, they'd protect my X-S10 just fine. And if you also only encounter adverse weather on relatively rare occasions, that's probably all you'd need too.
    Edit: all my Fuji lenses are weather-sealed, so that's another thing to consider.

    sebas1430 reacted to James Thurley in Comparison of X-Transformer and Lightroom Enhance Details   
    For the parameters I basically tried to make the DNG as "raw" as possible, so that only the demosaicing would be done by X-Transformer and Lightroom would still handle everything else. If you look at this post I wrote I go into more detail on each setting and why I chose it and have screenshots of my X-Transformer configuration. I went to quite a lot of effort to make sure I understood each setting, so I'm fairly confident in the result.
    The built in lens corrections are passed through in the DNG for Lightroom to apply. Unexpectedly though the lens corrections come out slightly differently after going through X-Transformer: Even with "Include as DNG Metadata" set as the lens correction option, when Lightroom applies the corrections from the DNG the result matches what you would get if you got X-Transformer to apply the corrections itself, and doesn't match what you get applying the lens corrections directly from the RAF file. My guess is that when X-Transformer maps the lens corrections from RAF format to DNG format it goes via their algorithm in some way. Although this sounds concerning, in my brief test (again, see the post I linked to above for more detail) the lens corrections applied from the DNG were actually slightly better than when they were applied directly from the RAF.
    I'm not overly concerned about deleting the RAF files, as DNG is a more standard format anyway. It's just a shame the DNGs are about 3x the size, but that is unavoidable as they now contain RGB values per pixel rather than the single color value from the X-Trans filter that the RAF stored. Keeping the RAF files is only about 33% more space though, so keeping them isn't a bad option if you have the space.

    sebas1430 got a reaction from Chucktin in (Lack of) Speed of working with RAF Files in Lightroom CC   
    You can run a quick benchmark just to see if your CPU is working as expected. This standalone program http://www.userbenchmark.com/ is really usefull; it compares your computer with other computers with same specifications. A couple of days ago, This program helped me to find issues with my CPU.
     
    Also, do you have a SSD drive? Such drive can boost any computer and since Lightroom is writing all single action to its database, a SSD with high write speed will help.
     
    But keep in mind that unfortunately, Adobe is sold to Mac.... They don't put that much effort to optimize their Windows applications. Even their iOS apps are generally more complete than Android. But for me.... I willl never buy an Apple product, but that's me!
     
    Additionally, you can also download Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to get some stats from your CPU (temperature, frequency, turbo boost, etc.). Again, this helped me to figure out that the turbo boost feature was disabled.

    sebas1430 got a reaction from Franky2step in Iridient X-Transformer + Lightroom Settings for Great Results   
    If you open directly the X-Transformer app and convert a file, the result will be a DNG. But if you launch X-Transformer from Lightroom (configured as an external editor), the result will be a TIFF. But the result and size are the same.

    I'm interested into that feature but we don't have enough information yet to get excited. I would like that this feature creates a DNG or TIFF to pursue development in LR or any other software.

    sebas1430 got a reaction from TClair in Lightroom for x-trans... seriously?   
    There are many threads for this. I will resume the easiest solution (I personally use it). Buy X-Transformer for Windows from Iridient, it's really cheap and it doesn't change the workflow that much.
     
    1) convert your RAF with this tool
    2) import the DNG results into Lightroom
    3) work with Lightroom as usual (apply film simulation if you want)
     
    Some subject/pattern are less affected by this pattern so I don't use the tool for all images.
     
    The tool can be also used as a Lightroom external editor. In that case, you import your RAF, and you convert from Lightroom, it's even easier but requires minor configuration.
