  1. Hello Everyone, I just picked up an XT2 and this is my first Fuji camera, really excited about using it. I've been watching a lot of youtube videos and reading forum post to familiarize myself with the camera and its settings. I am very impressed by the film simulations but really confused on how to use them in conjunction with RAW files. I was under the impression that if I shoot RAW+JPEG(Fine/Norma) with a film simulation selected (e.g. Chrome). Simulation is applied to JPEG only and RAW file is pure raw without any processing that I can edit however I want in post processing. But I took the camera out for the first time and realized the film simulation is applied to both JPEG and RAW. Is there a way to shoot with film simulation applied to JPEG but get unprocessed RAW files from XT2? Thanks for everyone's help in advance!
  2. I have a Lightroom subscription and have been ysing it for a while now, however the RAF didn’t seem very good, certainly no where as good as jpegs..then i tried to use enhance details and found almost no difference and in some cases a much smoother image as if it got compressed...i shifted to capture one pro 12 and that thing doesn’t even recognize any photos on my laptop when i try to import...can someone please help me, I’m feeling hopeless 🤕
  3. When shooting fine RAW with simulation set to b/w options the RAW file is in full colour. I want to be able to convert a RAW b/w image via Adobe Raw without converting from colour to greyscale first. Am I missing something here? Am I stuck with just the jpeg in say Acros? Regards, NeilC
  4. Hi all, I'm new both to the Fuji X cameras (but not Fuji film/chrome!) and after 2 days of reading, setting up, and doing field tests, am at the point of managing & viewing image files. I have hit 3 roadblocks which I don't see directly addressed via online search or forum search (so far, anyway). Any advice/suggestions appreciated, and I know full well everyone's work flow, software/hardware, and personal context vary widely. Apologies for greedily asking 3 questions, hoping one or more yields something useful for my situation. Thank you in advance. #1 - Exif/file info with reference to film simulation. (Note I've not yet downloaded the raw converter, and not sure which/how will give me the best and easiest tools and experience). So... I went out to take my "first roll" of images, shooting in both .jpeg and raw, mostly stills plus a few 4K vid clips, and emulating my beloved Velvia in some (fall foliage time here) while trying out some of the other film types. The thing is, when I downloaded - to a Mac, w/ iPhotos/Photos and Photoshop - I had no way to tell which film type was on each image, among shots I took several of to compare the results side by side. Problem #1: Neither the Mac file info nor Photoshop .exif info provides "Provia" or "Velvia" or whatever label, leaving me the arduous task of going to the camera and copying that info by hand into the image notes or filename. I see many reviews and how-to's with many photos, each listing the film emulation used. Is there anything I've missed in looking for the (.jpeg) setting? Any tips? Thanks. #2 - Raw - I've read a bunch and upgraded Photoshop to be able to read and work with the .raf files. HOWEVER, again maybe specific to my chosen tools (usually iPhoto for viewing and Photoshop/Elements for editing/post), but my issue here is lack of thumbnail display when looking through or importing .raf files. I see only the generic thumbnail, not an image, rendering the previews useless in knowing what's there, without referring back to the camera or finding the same file in .jpeg if I have it. Is there some fix for this either within Photoshop or via some Fuji software? #3 - GPS/Geotagging - Probably my biggest disappointment compared with what else is "out there", and compared against both my iPhone (which geotags and maps) or my Pentax camera which does it too. Automatically. Again, I read many posts, reviews, and manuals (like a good scientist), but while I get the idea of what's possible, still I'm not pleased with the "workaround". Obviously it wasn't a deal-breaker in choosing this wonderful camera (X-T2) but it would be real nice to automatically tag with location and/or GPS coordinates. I understand you need a GPS receiver to get this, so no firmware update is going to help, but.... I find the option to use a phone device and tether, constantly remembering to manually change the camera setting with each new location, let's say, cumbersome. (A pain!) Sometime the phone is useless, with no wifi or satellite nearby, but that's pretty rare for GPS. Anyway, I've read some suggestions (along the line of being sure to change the location manually with each new place, tethered to a phone with GPS/geotagging) and am wondering - though I've mostly resigned to forgetting about native, or easy, geotagging with this camera .... Any secret techniques for rather easily geotagging at least key places on a journey? Right now, though I'm not sure I'll have phone or wi-fi near me where I'm headed, one consideration is taking a phone photo at every camera session, just to get the coordinates and/or geographic tag. If that's all I can do really, I'd be interested in knowing whether I'd be able to add the GPS info from phone photo, manually or in bulk, AFTER the fact, when I return home or to base, or whatever. Any hints/advice appreciated. Those are my big-3 remaining questions before I venture out with this camera as my new main camera (replacing much bigger/heavier gear). My first forum query, and again, apologies for the length and breadth of my inquiry. Thinking this "the place" to ask among actual users of all stripes. Thanks!
  5. Hello dear fellow Fuji-x community, I'm a happy X-pro2 user, that's no doubt. Unfortunately I would like to refer a problem I have with capture one. After about 2 months of shared mailed with the customer service of C1, it appears that the raw files lens distortions of the X-pro2 can't be corrected for now. I also have to state that in the meantime they released 2 updates (9.1.2 and 9.2). Until now they stated that the problem was more complicated than expected and requested my patience. Somebody has the same problem I have ? to be honest I doubt it's a difficult problem to solve, and I begin to be very upset with the C1 company (I can't recommend the customer service, if someone is interested I can post the mail exchange I had). Thank you for reading, Quentin
  6. I for one hope Fuji keeps improving their video quality. This got me thinking, canon has the popular hack of Magic Lantern which enables full 14bit raw recording (albeit at lower realities and for limited time). However Fuji raw files are massive, but their jpegs rule. I wonder if Fuji has considered implemented a similar approach (ie 1080p jpegs at 24fps, or higher resolution and frame rates). And then maybe a incamera to stitch them together for people who want it right then. This is probably very niche, but Fuji doesn't have any video line to protect like most of the other companies. I really don't want to have two sets of cameras and lenses etc.
  7. 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.
  8. Hi All, I spent the last couple weeks throwing tough files (Fuji X-Trans 24MP, Sony 42MP) at the Luminar Jupiter update that was officially released yesterday (12 April) Skylum gave me an advance copy to do the testing so I wrote a review of this new release of Luminar, which I just posted on my blog and was also picked up by PetaPixel. I did my testing on an averagely equipped laptop and a fast desktop, both Macs. I have been hearing that Windows users aren't seeing speed increases as dramatic as on Mac platform. In case you saw Skylum's charts in their marketing, they make it look faster than my real world tests. But in all fairness, I don't know how they conducted their tests. I did mine with a digital stopwatch. I also covered most of the other significant changes in the update. BTW, this update is free to current owners of Luminar 2018. In my article I also have links and codes that allow you to piggyback discounts if you have an interest in purchasing or upgrading from the 2017 version. Skylum is also including a bunch of extra freebies, many of which look useful. Hope you like the review- the data part is empirical but of course I express my opinions about other aspects, both positive and not positive. Joel
  9. 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
  10. I just switched from X-T1 to X-T2 and I'm wondering if the lossless raw captures images in 14 bit. Based on this post, lossless is 12 bit https://alikgriffin.com/uncompressed-vs-lossless-fujifilm-x-t2/ I can't find the official information from Fuji
  11. I was shooting indoors with my Fuji X-T1 and 18-135 lens, no flash. I was bracketing and shooting Raw plus normal jpeg. I took about 300 pictures of a children's play, but when I got home, approximately 1/3 of the raw files were not generated in the middle of the shoot. The jpegs were ok, and the raw files which were on the card were fine. I can't imagine what would have caused this, but I am left with no confidence in the camera. Should it be sent off for repair?
  12. I have discovered a little know programme in these circles that I have been stress testing from the developer before going public for a few weeks. Unfortunately dpr does not have a sense of humour and didn't like the teaser!! https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58194503 The detail extraction is beyond irident in my opinion. Interested to hear more, stay tuned, I hope you guys are less cynical than many on dpr
  13. Hello Fufi X Forum users, After years of Canon dslr use I've made the switch to Mirrorless and Fuji (X-Pro 2) so like many others I have a sharpish learning curve to tackle. Here's a pretty basic enquiry that I hope someone can help me with to set me on my way : Can anyone tell me whether Fuji has its own proprietary software: 1) for Downloading images from camera to Mac (equivalent to EOS Utility) and 2) for initial processing of RAW files (equvalent to Digital Photo Professional). If not, any pointers / advice on this would be very welcome. Many Thanks
  14. 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
  15. Hey guys, after importing the first images to Lightroom (on a Mac running 10.11.2) after the update I noticed a weird behaviour: All RAW images are cropped to 16:9 after import. Changing the crop ratio to "Original" instead of "As Shot" fixes things. It's a small annoyance as it can quickly be fixed for all images but still it is kind of stupid. Has anyone else had that problem? The only thing I could find about it was this post on DPR: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3966021
  16. Hello all, RAW doesn't seem to be an available option on my XT-1 while I'm in using full manual settings ('fine' & 'normal' are the only options avail to me). Here are my camera settings: White Balance: 'Shady' (why isn't there a 'flash' setting??); ISO: L (because I'm doing studio portraiture - working with strobes); Speed: 125; Mode: 'S' (single frame). I'm sure there's something simple I am missing here. Appreciate everyone's sage advice to make me a better photographer!
  17. Hi, New to the forum and new to Fuji! I have recently purchased an XT10 which, after only a couple of outings i am really happy with. It was (and still is) a steep learning curve after shooting Nikon for the last 15 years, but in general really happy with the XT10. One question i do have and i just cannot get my head around is working with RAW files. I am currently running Photoshop CS4 and i have downloaded the Adobe DNG converter. When i go to open a RAF file, they are all greyed out and i just cannot open them. Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know of a workaround? Many thanks in advance, Lee
  18. Last Saturday, I took part in a marketing event jointly hosted by a local camera shop and Fujifilm Hong Kong. I had chance to try out X-Pro2 with XF100-400. It seems that RAW offers much more detail than JPG (NR-4). X-Pro2, XF100-400 @ISO 3200, f/5.6, 1/80, 400mm Provia, AWB, NR-4, Sharp+1, Shadow-1 LR 2015.4: Exposure + 1.0, Highlights - 20, Shadows + 20, Whites + 20 No further sharpening in LR. As I'm a newbie here, I'm not allowed to post photos. Comparison shots are available here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fujimike/albums/72157661789327693 Before trying out X-Pro2, I compared RAW vs JPG of X-T1 before. Using default sharpening settings (Amount = 25, Radius = 1.0, Detail = 25, Masking = 0), RAW conversion of X-T1 RAF file by LR gives a softer JPG. Many ppl are saying that LR is not good at RAF processing, and fails to extract details from X-T1 RAF files. Someone shared that the optimal settings for LR: [Detail section] Amount = 35->45, Radium = 1.0, Detail = 35->45, Masking >= 10). It really extracts more detail from RAF. I think Adobe has tweaked X-Pro2 RAW conversion, giving much more detail even using default settings.
  19. 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.
  20. I have a question that hopefully somebody can answer. When I shoot in the square format, 1:1 I can only shoot raw if I shoot raw + fine, or raw + normal, etc. I cannot shoot square and "only" raw. Is this an oddity of the Fuji XT1 or is it operator error? Any thoughts?
  21. I would like to get to the bottom of the issue with opening RAW files out of Lightroom into Photoshop. Sometimes I get a message saying something like "Unable to use the Camera Raw plug-in. It is not compatible with this version of Photoshop." Sometimes I get no message, and Photoshop opens but loads no image. I'm on a Mac, and I've tried v6.7, 8.8 and 9.3 of the ACR plugin in the folders under /Library/Application support/Adobe/Plug-ins/... Has anyone here had a similar experience, or know of a fix?

  22. About a year ago I sold all my Canon gear and bought an X100S. I started off shooting in both RAW and JPG, as was my custom with my Canon. I quickly discovered that the JPGs looked as good or better than the raw files, at least when viewed in Lightroom, so I turned to shooting in JPG exclusively. I never changed any of the JPG settings. Now I have acquired an X-T1 with a 18-55mm and a 14mm. I plan to use both cameras but for different situations. I started off shooting just JPG on the X-T1, as was my new habit , but I found that the images didn't seem as sharp as the ones I am getting from the X100S. I then reverted to shooting both RAW and JPG, and it seems to me that the JPGs look a bit soft (less detailed and less sharp) compared to the unedited RAW images, and softer than the JPGs that come straight out of the X100S (same film simulation on both cameras). I am using the default JPG settings on the X-T1. I want the image quality on the X-T1 to be nigh identical to the X100S, which I really like. Is there a difference in the way the two cameras convert to JPG, should I be using other settings, or does this sound like there could be something wrong with my X-T1? Does anyone have any similar experience?
  23. One of the frustrating things at the moment with the X-T1 is the Multiple Exposure feature. Great that it has it, but you can only use 2 images, it outputs as JPEG, and there is little control of the blending. It would be a great Kaizen feature for Firmware 5 to have: 1) up to 5 or 7 images (some manufacturers do 9) 2) Output as Raw 3) Blend control No idea how you submit features for consideration, but I have tried a few tweets. What is slightly frustrating is that the X-E1 had Raw output, but the flagship model doesn't. I guess too that this isn't restricted to the X-T1 as X-E2 owners would benefit.
  24. I'm a new X-T20 user . I found a most bookmarked thread in a forum suggesting picture profile settings inorder to gain rough RAW preview to facilitate ETTR. There was a reply saying this can be simply achieved by turning off the "picture preview effect" under display settings . But there was also a counter message saying it wouldn't work and it said to use your desired simulation (with settings if you want). do a test (by increasing) and find out the safe +EV range you can recover. I usually use exposure preview off with highlight clipping alert in order achieve ETTR. But some time I find although clipping warning doesn't come in evf, in post things are blown out and they can't be recoverable. Now I use 1/3 under than clipping highlight warning with "pic effect preview" turned off. Still I'm not confident. Which method do you use to achieve ETTR? Can you tell me if you are using provia simulation in x-t20 how many stops are recoverable in post? If you tried picture preview effect off method along with high light clipping option like me to get EETR how it is working for you? Thanks in advance
