  1. Hello, My RAW files are not being recognized in Lightroom Classic - I've updated it to the latest version but only the jpegs are being recognized. Am I missing something? When I go to import a download (I generally shoot in Acros B/W jpeg + RAW) the RAW files get rejected as not importable? Thank you, Anthony
  2. I recently purchased the Fujifilm Tether Shooting Plug-in for Mac, from Adobe website, redirecting to fujifilm website for downloading. Problem is that the download file is .exe, which obviously don´t work on Mac. I can´t find the download for mac, even though it says that the download is for mac. Adobe custum service sucks! Can´t get in contact thorugh chat, so I desperately ask you guys if you know what to do. The plug-in file is called FUJI_PLUGIN.pkg. http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/hsv5/plugin_01/ http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/hsv5/plugin_01/download.html Kind reagards Leidolv
  3. My powerful workstation laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad W540) with an i7 processor and 32 gigs of RAM on W10 struggles HARD with my RAF files from my X-T2. Every adjustment lags, and even scrolling down my photos in the Library module is choppy. Hard quick adjustments like spot healing skin or masking adjustments takes multiple seconds per click to see my adjustment show up on the preview, no matter what I do. I've got a 40GB cache, I've turned GPU processing on, and back off, to see if it makes a difference (it doesn't) and nothing I've done seems to make any difference. My drive has 40% free space, I only have about 6000 photos in my catalog, and I back-up and Optimize regularly. In hunting for solutions, I found someone suggesting that I could import all of my photos to a fast external drive, render Smart Previews, then disconnect the drive, and work exclusively with the smart previews, which are supposedly smaller, lighter, and faster to work with, and then when I'm done, re-connect the drive, apply the changes, and export/work in Photoshop from there. Wondering if anyone has any better tips for speeding up Lightroom when working with RAF files, or if anyone has tried the Smart Preview method described above to tell me whether it provides any advantages?
  4. I've just written up a new blog post here, outlining the settings I've worked out to get the most out of Iridient Digital's new X-Transformer conversion software. I did some rather rigorous testing over the past couple of days, to see if I can find an optimal starting point when working with Iridient + Lightroom. I was searching everywhere for suggested settings, but it being such a new product I was unable to find any real direction. Please have a read, and let me know what you think! I think the results are wonderful, but would love to hear others opinions. This is just a base starting point, prior to any further processing, but it makes a freshly converted X file look perfect. Cheers; Isaac
  5. I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly and getting everything I can out of this software. Having to purchase an extra plugin and opening different windows just to take a picture makes this feel like something's not right. I did watch the instructional video but it sort of stops right at the point where you start using the software. I guess aside from the tether program acting completely disconnected from Lightroom, I can't get focus to work. I'm on LR CC and have purchased the Fuji Tether Plugin Pro v 1.602. My XT-2 is on FW 2.10. I open LR and start a new tethered session; File > Tethered Capture > Start new Tethered Capture. I get a control window that pops up once it recognizes my camera and I can take pictures with the 'shutter' button. These photos show up in my Library in LR. I can also go to my menu bar and select Show Fuji Tether Plugin Pro. This brings up a window which, by default, is on Camera (USB) on the left and Preview on the right. This view does absolutely nothing. I can select PC from the menu on the left which also at first does nothing until I select LIVE VIEW on the right. Now I can see my camera and make some exposure adjustments. So, when I want to view what my camera sees, I should not use the menu that says Camera and instead use PC. What It seems I can not do is use the AF/MF Settings. Once I turn on Focus Area, I can click in my frame to designate a focus area but that doesn't actually tell my camera to focus. When I click on my shutter button, nothing happens. I can not take a picture with the AF/MF Settings turned on. In the Preferences for Fuji Tethered Plugin Pro, there's an option to "Specify action of clicking on the Live View window". The options are Move Focus Area, Instant AF, and Instant AF and Shoot. The first one is the only one that results in a proper action. If I exit out of the Fuji Tethered Plugin Pro and just use the built in LR capture tool, my camera will focus as expected. Please let me know what things I'm getting wrong. All I want to do is see a large view of my subject, click to focus, and take a picture. I've spent too much time and money trying to make this work.
  6. First, a comparison between X-Transformer's rendering, and straight Lightroom. Settings are exactly the same between the two images. I've always struggled with the weird rendering of detail that I get with my RAF files in Lightroom. I've tried a few different processors to get my fine detail, but they either don't do much to solve the problem (Capture1) or are incredibly cumbersome to use (Photo Ninja) or are not available to me on Windows (Iridient) I recently found X-Transformer (By Iridient) and found that it works more or less perfectly, and lets me keep my Lightroom workflow, so I thought I would share my process for anyone else interested or struggling with the same issues I was. THE METHOD I'm on Windows 10, using Lightroom CC I went and got X-Transformer by Iridient I then set it up to work as a plugin for Lightroom CC Then, in Lightroom, once you find the files you want to work with and get your detail out of, you just choose to edit them in X-Transformer And then put in these settings which strip out the horrible noise reduction and sharpening, and demosaic the data much better than Lightroom. Then, once it's done running through X-Transformer, your image is back in Lightroom as a TIFF that you can treat exactly like your RAF files, except it's got fine detail in it. It's the least cumbersome method I've found so far that gets really really good detail out of your shots, without forcing you to learn a crazy new half-broken editing software. The other program I found that gets this level of detail is Photo Ninja, but it is really difficult to work with, and feels almost like an Alpha for the first version of Lightroom. I don't advise it. Many photographers won't care about the improvement, and that's fine. Fine detail doesn't make or break a photo if the rest of the content/light/processing is good. But for those that want their full 24 megapixels worth of data, this is a great solution without having to give up Lightroom. Disclaimer: I haven't used the brand new CaptureOne which supposedly does very well with RAF files. Links to two full res comparison photos
  7. Hi; This has to be me, but I have the X-T1 connected to a MacBook Pro running Lightroom CC 2015 with all updates. I plug the camera in and seek to import - Camera shows up in Lightroom as "USB PTP Camera" but "No Photos Found". SD card imports directly OK. Is it me? Thanks Bob
  8. hey guys. I rated today's shoot in camera X-T2, now those stars dont show in LR. I'm amazed how little is on the net at all, and no real answer. Nobody doing that rating in camera? Thanks for your help ! cheers
  9. As you photographers know, taking images of shiny things or surfaces is a nightmare. Every light source is reflected back into the lens. In this post I share ideas and in camera setting suggestions for shooting Ceramics, which other Fuji users may find interesting. Clive Bowen is one of the most renowned U.K. potters and I am privileged to make and share images of his work. Photographing Ceramics with the Fuji X system https://gallerylefey.wordpress.com
  10. Hi, Proud new owner of an X Pro 2 here... As I'm getting to know the camera one of my first tasks is to learn the various Film Simulation modes. I have figured out both how to change the film "stock" and also to bracket film simulation modes (great feature!). However, when I bring the jpegs into the latest version of Lightroom CC there is no field that says which film mode the photo was taken in, so there goes my learning process. Is there any way to display this information in Lightroom, or if not, in perhaps some other software? Worst case scenario I will have to write down the name of a film stock and walk around taking photos with the sign in the frame -- talk about old school... Another related question: I feel I read somewhere that Lightroom can do its own post-processing using simulacra of Fuji film stocks. Is this a pug-in I need to download and install, or Presets that need to be downloaded. Thanks for any help.
  11. I just can't image how some people claim that the newest Lightroom version CC 2015 1.1 is doing a better job with Xtrans RAF files then before. I did make some test images today, specifically looking for the "foliage watercolor problem" to see if anything has become better with this latest Lightroom update. Just take a look at this 2 photos and look at the smearing and watercolor in the foliage. It is just looking very bad (in my opinion...) https://www.dropbox.com/s/235o9vagw51o6nz/01.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/vmdt8thlz01m9yu/02.jpg?dl=0 Crops from these 2 pictures with watercolor/smearing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9gek02xc080w64h/crop01.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/yx4krq52qgsaaht/crop02.jpg?dl=0 I personally can't image anybody being happy with Xtrans RAF files being edited in Lightroom. These same images look a lot better in Capture One, where the smearing and watercoloring is gone! I find the combination Xtrans/LIghtroom totally useless. I wonder if anyone that is using this combination can show me an image with foliage without this terrible smearing/watercolor effect? I believe it is not possible... I really like the Fuji x cameras, I have an X100s, X-E2, 14/2.8, 35/1.4 and 60/2.4. I am a professional wedding photographer and I always work with Canon EOS 5D camera's and I still do today. I use the Fuji set as my lightweight everyday/travel set. But... I am now close to the point of selling my Fuji stuff. Okay, in Capture One this smearing of foliage is gone, but there are other problems instaed. I don't like the way Capture One is rendering the skin tones from RAF files, these are much more red compared to the great skintones in the OOC jpegs and the skintones in Lightroom. I also don't like the UI from Capture One and the fact that I have to buy and learn antoher raw converter because of this Xtrans sensor problems... (althought a lot of people cal it an Adobe problem, but I am not totally convinced about that). Any people here to share my thoughts? Or thinking about selling their Fuji's because of this?
  12. Hi there! I'm new to fuji and this is my first post after reading for some weeks in this forum. My brand new xt2 has arrived and is going to replace my broken pentax k5. I am very interested in mobile raw processing workflows, since iOS 10 and the newest lightroom mobile seemed to make a bis step in the right direction. I was following the tutorial of Elia Locardi on Petapixel, and I think I would be happy with this workflow (and even consider to buy an iPad pro), if it would work! http://petapixel.com/2016/09/01/pro-photographers-raw-workflow-lightroom-mobile/ But there is one thing that seems not to work as shown in the tutorial. And I can't figure out why: On my iPad Air 2 (and as well as on my iPhone 7) I am able to import the RAW files from the xt2 via the SD-lighting-adapter. But during the import (and in the photos app as well) iOS does not show/preview the pictures. As soon as they are imported from photos app to lightroom mobile, everything seems to works fine. But without seeing which files I am importing to the iPad the whole workflow is ridiculous. A bit to much being in the dark, at least for my taste. Does anyone have a good idea why it dies works as the video suggests? Matthias
  13. Everyone knows that loading RAF files into lightroom takes a long time, and while it sucks, that's not my problem. Once everything is loaded up, and I'm trying to browse/edit my photos, it's like moving through molasses. Even moving to the next photo in the library module can take two or three seconds. Transitioning from Library to Develop module takes around 10-15 seconds before it's usable. After adjusting the exposure slider, there is around a two second delay before the adjustment appears on the screen. More intensive sliders take longer. I make an adjustment, and I have to wait and see if it looks good, and then go back and re-adjust, because it won't happen live. Moving to the next photo in the develop module take five or more seconds. I'm using a Windows 10 laptop with an i7 processor, 32 gigs of ram, and a fast SSD with tons of free space on it. I haven't made any major changes to the performance settings in Preferences. I guess my main question is, what are the chances that I'm doing something wrong with my settings, or my library? It seems impossible to me that it's just this bad for everyone. Trying to intensively edit 30 or more photos leaves me with a sense of dread.
  14. A couple of days ago, Adobe released Lightroom Mobile for IOS 2.4. Big new feature is a technology preview that allows for importing, organizing, reviewing and editing of RAW-images, including RAF from the Fuji-cameras. And the really great feature is that all the photos you add to lightroom mobile will be uploaded to Creative Cloud and automatically added to your "Lightroom Desktop". I think this can be the start of a very efficient workflow when travelling light. What do you think? If anyone is interested in more details, I've written a short post about my experience so far.
  15. Adobe released their latest version of LR and ACR today. I noticed this in the "what's new": Need to try it and see. This has been a very slow process for me at least. Hope it's faster now. Source: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/whats-new-in-lightroom-cc-2015-6-and-lightroom-6-6/
  16. Hi there, Back in January I went to my favourite camera shop (London Camera Exchange in Plymouth) with the idea of trading in my Sony NEX-5 for an a6000. I also took my old Canon EOS 350 & associated lenses along with a Leica D-Lux3 compact, just to see if I would get a decent part exchange valuation against the proposed new Sony. They gave me a good quote for the old gear, so I was *just* about to seal the deal on the a6000 when I said to the assistant "Is there anything else I should consider as a Sony alternative?" They showed me an Olympus OM D (which was very nice) & then showed me the Fuji X-T10 - Wow! What a brilliant camera. I was immediately knocked out by the build quality & the whole feel & appearance. Needless to say I walked out with the kit with the 18-55 & 55-200 lenses; what a revelation the Fuji system has been - no regrets at all. I have one main question re' processing the Fuji RAW files. At present I have a 9 year old iMac which means I'm restricted to using Lightroom 5.7.1, which can't handle the RAW files natively (I have to convert them to DNG before Lightroom will touch them). I've had a look around online & Iridient Developer seems to be well regarded for handling the X-Trans RAW files; does anyone have experience of Iridient or, come to that, any other RAW processors? Apologies for rambling & if this needs to be posted to a more relevant thread please let me know. Thanks.
  17. Hi Guys, I understand most of the discussions here are on RAW post processing. How about the Jpegs? I really love the colors I am getting from the jpegs and with the highlight tone ,shadow and DR settings of the X-pro2, I really don't need to use RAW. Except for when I am in a rush, the scene is challenging and I don't have time to meddle with the settings. Anyways, my question is, when you edit your jpegs in Lightroom /photoshop- more like retouching, cropping , minor contrast/exposure adjustments, what settings do you export your jpeg as? quality at 100% ? I'm thinking jpeg's already had compression, exporting at lower than 100% will lead to even further reduction of quality? How about sharpening? JPEG files starigh out of camera should have had decent amount of sharpening so I figured it should be zero (unless you want that really sharp look) With RAW source files i usually export to JPEG at 76% with DPI of 300 and Standard Sharpening. Thanks in advance!
  18. When I import from my X-T1 into Lightroom only the RAW files seem to be imported as no Jpgs are listed. With my previous camera (Nikon) both were automatically imported. Have I missed a setting somwhere? I've checked the SD card and it has both images on it.
  19. Does anyone uses lightroom or other software for their libraries analytics? Ever since I switch over to Fuji for my "LMV (Lean, minimalist & value for money) Project", I have been trying to find out what are the statistics of the photos I've been taking. I do know what genres I took the most and have some ideas of what cameras, lenses, settings I took. Anyone?

    Recently we ran a photography holiday to the Lake District in the UK. It was one of the most successful ones we have done to date with 12 people attending. We had some pretty wet weather but of course we braved the conditions and it actually made for some quite atmospheric images.

  22. Here's a comparison test between two CFA with new Adobe method. Sorry, written in hungarian, but click to pictures bravely And a previous test: old Adobe X-Trans method vs new one.
  23. Hi all, Behind the intentionally provocative title lies a genuine frustration of mine, which is the following: I have a Nikon kit, and a Fuji X-Pro1-based kit. I use Lightroom (5.7) to develop my Fuji RAWs. Because of the whole Adobe extort subscription scheme, I had to quit using Camera RAW to develop my Nikon RAWs, and so I also use Lightroom for those. Now, when I process a Nikon RAW, Lightroom gives me, in the Lens Corrections tab, the option to apply corrections based on the lens that was used to take the picture: This is true for Nikkor lenses, but also for compatible thirs-party lenses such as the MF Zeiss I use. I can "Enable profile corrections" or not, or only some of them. For example, for a given photo, I may choose to leave vignetting correction alone because I find it nice to keep the vignetting, or some degree of it. Now, when I process a Fuji RAW, I don't have that option. When I try to to to the same tab, this is what I see: I understand that the lens corrections are "built into"... the Lightroom software itself? the RAW file? Well, they're built into something anyway, and applied automatically. Good. One less thing to do. Yes, except that one of the reasons we guys use Fuji X bodies is because we like to retain as much control as possible, if and when we want to apply it, and the ability to do everything manually every once in a while if we feel like it. In fact, we don't mind being given more control. Right? On another forum, I was told by very knowlegeable people that it was not Fuji's fault, but Adobe's choice, and that they do that for all mirrorless cameras. I wonder why, and I wonder if there are other X users like me, who'd like to simply have the choice: . either to have corrections applied automatically "in the black box" to their photos, . or to select manually which corrections should be applied, to what extent, with the ability to assess the effect in real time as the correction is applied and adjusted, just like what happens with DSLR RAWs. This forum (and Patrick's great rumor site) is apparently listened to by Fuji, and if Fuji could be persuaded that the way Adobe are doing it doesn't make much sense compared to the way Lightroom handles DSLR RAWs, then maybe Fuji could help convince Adobe to change policy... What do you think?
  24. I'm new to the fuji system and just wanted to get some input on which software does the best job.
  25. Hello, is there any sign or news of improvements in LR6 regardnig X-trans treatment? I think the answer is NO, being this a pseudo-upgrade...but never say never....
