Get Fujifilm X-Pro2 at B&H Photo.
The findings here should be of keen interest to any Fujifilm X shooter. This meticulous look at in-camera JPEG quality versus using ACR raw conversion looks at overall look and feel as well as sharpness. It’s really a must-read for the Fujifilm X shooter.
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 offers in-camera raw conversion in which any raw file can be converted to a JPEG using any combination of settings such as white balance, sharpening, film simulation and so on. This offers a limitless variety of JPEGs derived from one raw file; the raw file remains intact for any number of conversions, saved just as if another picture had been taken. But are the in-camera JPEGs good?
Two raw-conversion variants are shown as well as three in-camera JPEGs at 3 different sharpening levels. Imagers up to full-resolution (24 megapixels) are provided as well as large crops of these variants. The green barn offers outstanding fine detail for assessing performance.
