Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Spring came out of nowhere 3 weeks ago, bringing with it small and tender leaves and flowers. I got photography fever… Then I got worms when editing my Fuji X-T2 raw files with Lightroom...

 

Here is my journey.

I settled down with Irident X-transformer with these settings:

RAW process : more detailed

sharpening:none

Luminance noise reduction: Low

Color noise reduction : medium

Dng baseline : adobe default

Apply all corrections to the image. (all checked)

All the turn off lightroom checkboxes checked.

 

as for sharpening and further noise reduction I use NeatImage ( a Photoshop add-on)

Capture One is the best overall solution. Seems you're figuring that out. Dump Adobe.

your post intrigued me because of the use of the word "worms" in that it described exactly what I saw when I took some images of some archways at a local mosque. The archways are white plaster, nothing more. But when I got the images home, at 100% in LR the images seemed to consist of, well, little worms. I tried to clear it up and submit an image to a stock agency and it was rejected for artifacts. That never happens to me. Ever. So, am I suffering from the Fuji v Adobe issue. 

 

I wish I could upload an image to show you but I'm not at home right now.

I know this is an old topic. But i wanted to tell you guys how to avoid wormy artifacts in Lightroom. 

Under sharpening leave the "detail" slider at 0. Thats it. No wormy artifacts. No need to change your whole workflow...

    • The video features of any camera have absolutely no bearing on stills photography. None. Nothing. Ever. So having video in Fuji cameras hasn’t hurt you as a stills only photographer. 
    • YES, YES, YES!!  The direction Fuji has taken lately has been all for video and AF at the expense of ISO performance.  Forget about producing good stills, I'm not so sure they care.  The XT-2 was much better than the XT-3 and so far all I see is Fuji stepping back from image quality for the sake of AF and video. The "XH" series was supposed to mean "Hybrid" for both video and stills while the "XT" line was supposed to continue to be a camera, not a camcorder.   Now the XT-4 is simply the XH
    • I'll tell you what.  I DO NOT LIKE THE DIRECTION OF FUJI AT THE MOMENT.  If you want video, buy a camcorder, period!!
    • Hi, I’m passionate about underwater photography and I’ve been wondering for a long time why Fuji doesn’t invest much toward this category ?  Sony, Nikon, Canon, Panasonic and Olympus are excelling underwater with their vast choice of lenses ( especially native fisheye lenses with autofocus, close macro and ultra wide angle ) ans it’s really frustrating not to be able to use any x-mount camera to their full potential.  Any thoughts ? Are there rumors about that ?
    • I was not here when this thread happened and I did not take part in it, but having read through it now I would say that although epscott held his stance in a very military manner, which some others obviously could not tolerate well, he stated his opinions to which he had his full right and he did not deserve the negative reactions that he got. He addressed Fujifilm in his post and his requirements are obviously valid for a big enough group of users and that led to Fuji creating a camera with tho
