Darktable noise profile for X-T30 needed

Recommended Posts

The photo editor Darktable have added support for X-T30, however that support currently lacks a noise profile. It would be great if someone would be able to assist them by creating one for them. There are instructions on how to create such a noise profile here https://pixls.us/articles/how-to-create-camera-noise-profiles-for-darktable/

I do not have all the pre-requisites for the photo-part of the process, but I can assist with the non-photo parts of the process if needed.

This looks like what I do in Astrophotography  with software like Pixinsight.  The link you sent is where you create your own darks for your particular camera.  If it is like AP photography, the darks are used to calibrate your normal light frames and are specific to each camera as every sensor is a bit difference in noise.  I can't see much point in using the profile of my X-T30 on somebody else X-T30, it would improperly remove noise.

You need to make your own files and move them into Darktable per the instructions.  Frankly, looks like a pain for normal photography.

Well, from what I understand it is more about creating a profile to know how much noise reduction a specific camera needs for each OSI level, so they can make it easy to apply noise reduction. So it is not required to be unique per camera, but only per camera model.

      I recently picked up the x-t30 after finding the Sony X100 Mark 7 point and shoot was a bit soft.  I don’t know much about photography, but I love taking pics of flowers, family, pets, and travel.  I realized that my x-t30 refused to take macros, so I got the mcex-16 to aid in that.  I tried auto, manual, everything under the sun (I think), to try and take pics of my new African violet blooms.  But my camera simply won’t budge when I press down on the shutter button.  What am I doing wrong?  Or is the Mcex-16 broken (it did come in a banged up box)?  Also, I’m pairing it with a 18-55mm Fujinon lens, which several people were doing in the reviews for the extension.

      Hi All, 
      I recently entered the Fuji world and I'm trying to find my way to develop raw files.
      I used Dxo Photolabs and the Google Nik Collections to develop raw files, but since DXO does not support RAF files, I have to find an alternative.
      I am now trying the following software:
      darktable capture one express With darktable I can manage local adjustments through masks, parametric masks etc etc, but Capture 1 Express can't do the same.
      Question for C1 Express users: What tools do you use to manage local adjustments? What is your workflow?
      Thanks and sorry for my English!

      Hey, this is a new member and new entree into the Fuji-clan. I am Oliver. Actually, I am a music composer based in Germany, through my travel and work, I noticed that I can’t stop to take pictures on the way. After the last 8 years only shooting with a smartphone, I purchase for the first time a new digital camera, a CANON 200D, in this month I got my first Fuji-Camera, an X-T30 with kit lens 18-55mm F2.8-4.0. I am pretty happy with it, to be honest, it is not the fastest system, but I also like the surprise which this system creates. With this cam, I could work on my portrait more with my own sensitivities on the people, especially for male portrait.
      I would like to know if any the photography association could join especially for me in Germany.
      For exchange I am glad to see you visit my instagram:
