This it the latest instalment in my ongoing series looking at how various raw converters handle raw files shot on one of Fuji’s cameras with an X-Trans sensor. In the past I’ve written a good bit about using Iridient Developer and Lightroom for Processing, but a reader asked if there was a workflow for getting good results with just Aperture. I’ve been working on it over the last few weeks, and here’s the results of my experimentation. Overall, Aperture does a good job with X-Trans files in my opinion.
