A Few Photos From Galway and a Rant about the X-Pro1 | Thomas Fitzgerald | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it
I was in Galway a few weeks ago and I took a good few photos while I was there with my X-Pro1. Unfortunately, I haven’t really been that happy with them for a number of reasons. First of all, the weather wasn’t very good and so the light wasn’t very good. But more than that I’ve been having a bear of a time post processing them. As it stands, this is a real problem with the X-Pro1. Each method of dealing with the files from this camera has its issues. Some people swear by the JPEG output, saying it’s as good as RAW and so on. In my opinion this simply isn’t true. While the JPEGS are very clean and free from artefacts, they suffer from some serious colour bleeding. This leads to a processed and somewhat cheap look. It’s fine on some images, but anything with areas of strong colour contrast just bleeds, and in my opinion it’s quite significant. You don’t even need to zoom in to see it which makes me wonder how everyone says the jpegs are perfect?
