Fujifilm X-Pro2 Raw Conversion: X-Pro2 vs SilkyPix vs Adobe Camera Raw vs Iridient Developer

Get Fujifilm X-Pro2 at B&H Photo.

Updated: added Iridient Developer (conveted Fujifilm compressed RAF to DNG to enable).

Well, after hours of work with ACR, I came to a conclusion I did not expect, and I think I now understand why Fujifilm shooters just go with JPEG (though my recommendation remains RAW, or RAW+JPEG, if only to use the X-Pro2 camera body as a processing engine—and why can’t I just hook it up and use it that way form the computer BTW?).

Fujifilm shooters will definitely want to read this piece.
