Fuji X Pro 1 Jpeg performance and quality.


All Pictures here are Jpegs with no processing either in camera or out.

The Fuji X pro 1 shoots some the the finest most natural jpegs I have seen in my time in photography. The colors are rich the files are not over processed or sharpened .
The X pro’s files tend to have a warmer more filmic look. I would compare this to a fine grained slide film of yesteryear.

This image above I shot with the provia film simulation it tends to make things look quite blue but hey if that is what your after the x pro can do it.

What amazes me is even in my days shooting with the canon 5d mark 2 I would never of considered shooting Jpeg as I never considered the engine good enough to produce color that didn’t need tweaking.

I whole heartedly believe I could work in Jpeg if I was away on tour with no computer. I feel the results would satisfy my demands.

As there are limited options for processing raw files from the X Pro 1 I am not in any hurry to stop using the jpeg’s.

You have silkypix , adobe bridge and not much else as options . Not even Apples Aperture yet supports the X Pro 1. Very disappointing Apple.
