This post follows my last YouTube video (here on top) in which I’m trying the new Fujifilm X Raw Studio converter.
What I’m covering in the video:
• What is Fujifilm X Raw Studio and why a Fujifilm user should use it?
• Getting started with Fujifilm X Raw Studio: an overview of the interface.
• File handling of the Fujifilm X Raw Studio.
• How it compare Fujifilm X Raw Studio vs Lightroom.
• Astia and Velvia color simulation in Fujifilm X Raw Studio and Lightroom.
• How to export the file from Fujifilm X Raw Studio.
• My own final consideration about Fujifilm X Raw Studio.
On the file below, you can notice the differences in colors and rendering of the details between the Fujifilm X Raw Studio vs Lightroom.
I’ve to say, in my opinion, that there’s no this huge difference between the two software, and Lightroom has an overall advantage on the speed side compared to Fujifilm X Raw Studio!
Waiting to hear your opinion about it in the comments!

Ciao, penso che il software x raw studio sia il migliore per lavorare i file raf di fuji perche conosce bene i file, ma il fatto che bisogna collegare la fotocamera al computer per elaborare le foto,. Non e una cosa buona secondo me. Poi se hai fotocamere diverse devi collegare per i file la propria fotocamera.
Non si potrebbe fare presente a fuji di migliorare questo software rendendolo meno macchinoso con interfaccaccia tipo lightroom?

Very useful. I have the old LR6 standalone and I was hoping that if I bought an X-H1 this software would allow me to preview, select and convert my RAW files before exporting the TIFs to LR which does not support the new model. It seems though that that is not the case. I guess I may be able to use the Transformer X eventually but last time I looked it had not yet been updated.

Hello Andrew, I think that now the Fujifilm X Raw Studio support the X-H1 camera for sure. The problem is, that this software wasn’t born as an archive or file selector, the process is far too slow to use with that propose. You should use it just to edit some raw that you’ve already look and selected in other way. Let me know if it work for you and for your workflow! 🙂

Thanks for having such a close look at the new software.As you said, it’s the first version and changes/improvements will come soon (as we know FUJIFILM). You should mention that the GFX is also supported right now. This is especially interesting, as Capture One (the preferred .RAF converter for many Photographers when it comes to FUJI files) does not support GFX.RAF files.
On my wishlist::
* 16-bit tiff export
* setting a different EXPORT folder
* fine-tuning of SHADOWS and HIGHLIGHTS (not only +1,+2, but also maybe +1,3 or 1,6 or even continuous…)
* ANY camera with X-Processor connected should allow processing of any supported camera.

yes, I forgot to say about the amazing GFX that is also supported!
Well, your wishlist is absolutely shareable to all of us Fujifilm photographers. I would like also a better user interface management in the software and the star/flag to be able to select/filter the photos on the film strip! 🙂
