Adobe Camera RAW 7.1 for Fuji X-Pro1

I have updated my review of the Fuji X-Pro1 to show the results with Adobe Camera RAW 7.1 in Photoshop CS6 (same as Lightroom 4.1).

The color rendition with ACR for X-Pro1 files is SPECTACULAR when it comes to flowers and other brightly saturated colors. Really impressive!

However, I am concerned that the Fuji X-Pro1 anti-moiré sensor design is a cure worse than the disease in the way details are rendered with some subject matter. But don’t take my word for it— use your own eyes just as soon as I post the images that show what I mean. Everyone can decide this for themselves, and the concern varies wildly depending on the type of subject matter.

(!) Images below in ProPhotoRGB — you must use a colorspace-aware browser and a calibrated wide-gamut display to appreciate them.

Thank you for the very quick and clearly executed job of the raw conversion comparison between ACR 7.1 and Silkipix for the Fuji X-Pro1.

The artifacts shown are instructive and disappointing for the Fuji Pro camera.

There is one strange thing I noticed at once. Most obvious in the Flowers and Food / Flower #6 image, the ACR conversion looks like some kind of montage. It looks as if the yellow/orange/red colors (flowers) are mounted into the image in Photoshop.

The whites/purples and greens look more clear, better defined with higher acutance. The Silkypix image shows a more believable image in this regard. Maybe it is just my observation on my system.

DIGLLOYD: well, I really dislike the SilkyPix conversions in most respects, and I prefer #6 from ACR in spite of its shortcomings. Perhaps you’re reacting to the sharper image, but I think more likely that it’s the odd digital edge effect I note on the Color Bleed page in the Moiré and other interesting effects example.
