Fuji X-Trans RAW Processing Done Right | Mark Soon

Recently, I purchased the Fuji X-T1 camera to act as my second body as well as my walkaround. It wasn’t until recently that it all changed for me, and now my X-T1 is my camera of choice, over my full frame Nikon D600. To me, that is a big call to make, considering that the D600′s IQ is known for producing beautiful dynamic range and details (aside from the D800 of course). The reason for that is that I’ve found the image quality of the Fuji’s X-Trans sensor to be outstanding, and for my style of shooting, it easily keeps up with what my full frame has to offer. This is not a camera review however, so I won’t go down that rabbit’s hole. There has been a lot of talk on forums about the X-Trans sensor producing RAW files with smudged details. Hence a lot of Fuji photographers have been shooting mainly in JPG, using the straight out of camera images instead. The problem stems from how Lightroom handles those RAW files and not the X-Tran files themselves……..
