New RAW Converter ‘Fujifilm X RAW Studio’

September 7, 2017

FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) has announced that it is developing a new RAW conversion system, “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”.

“FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” enables users to quickly and easily convert RAW files with outstanding image quality, once a camera is connected to a Mac or PC via USB cable.

Exceptional image quality is retained, as the X RAW STUDIO system utilizes the X Processor Pro in the camera instead of the CPU in the computer,

Due to the increasing size of RAW files, users have found batch conversion to be an issue, as it takes more and more time as a result. However, using the high performance “X Processor Pro” processor, this batch conversion is handled far more efficiently as a result.

This new software is due to be available from late November 2017.

Main Features

  • Convert RAW images on the computer (Single / Batch Process)
  • Preview converting images
  • Save, load, or copy conversion profiles.

* Specifications, window images subject to change without notice.
* RAW conversion is compatible with a RAW file taken by the same model as the connected camera.

Due Release

Application Software “FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO”:

  • for Mac : Late November 2017
  • for Windows : Late January 2018

“FUJIFILM X RAW STUDIO” system compatible camera firmware:

  • FUJIFILM GFX 50S: Late November 2017 (Ver.2.00)
  • FUJIFILM X-T2: Late November 2017 (Ver.3.00)
  • FUJIFILM X-Pro2: Late December 2017 (Ver.4.00)

XF16mm f/1.4 As Macro Lens?

In this post, I’m testing the value of the Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 as a macro lens. I used a tripod and natural light from a south-facing window in the afternoon. I ran the same test with both the X-T2 and X-E1. All photos are JPGs from RAW, with no editing. The zoom-in shots are 100% crops.

XF16-f/1.4 (X-T2) 3.0 sec at f/8.0, ISO 100. Click to enlarge.

XF16-f/1.4 (X-T2) 100%

XF16-f/1.4 (X-E1) 1.5 sec at f/8.0, ISO 200. Click to enlarge.

XF16-f/1.4 (X-E1) 100%

Preliminary thoughts: The 16-1.4 allows me to get within inches of the subject, and the results are excellent. I saw little IQ difference between the X-T2 and X-E1.
