X100 RAW processed - it's terrific
Mar 2, 2011

We've all been waiting to see what the X100 can do in RAW, but have been unable to open the samples in any programs.

In this thread, http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1020&thread=37858823 , user ncruzes did us a big favor. He used a special patched version of a RAW converter to convert the RAWs to PNG.

I downloaded those PNGs from his dropbox, and converted them to TIFF in iPhoto.

Then used Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS4 to process the TIFF as I would any RAW file -- denoise, sharpening, adjusting exposure, color, contrast, etc.

For those who complained that the X100 produces soft, flat images -- rest assured -- the RAWs can deliver the goods.

Here is a link to download the "before" (unprocessed TIFF) http://db.tt/uM3tnCm and the "after" (post-processed TIFF) http://db.tt/dvXlxHS
