G1 X - From RAW to JPEG - Question on RAW converters and Workflow
Oct 18, 2012

No, I am NOT starting a thread on this topic!!!

Next week, I will start shooting with the G1 X. The good news: Capture One 6.4.x can read G1 X RAW files. The bad news: it looks like it cannot do lens correction from the box.

The result: Capture One is not as useable as DPP, which produces, in terms of geometry, at least, a much better picture. (Sorry I cannot share the picture because it is copyrighted.) See DOL topic.

The ugly: I am a long time user of Lightroom (3.6), to do my imports, keywords and overall picture management. LR also has a built-in lens adjustment, which may or may not work on G1 X (unless I spend US$80 to find out). Of course 3.6 does NOT read G1 X RAW files...

my question:

does it make sense to:

  1. Import RAW in DPP (3.12.40)
  2. Apply Reject/Stars in DPP
  3. Do some minor adjustments (WB, Picture Style, cropping/leveling) in DPP
  4. Save (in Batch) in TIFF, in case I need further adjustments and Import to Lightroom
  5. Add additional Keywords or do other final adjustments in LR
  6. Export/Publish to Web as necessary from LR (which is not as good as Capture One for JPEG compression)
That would skip Capture One, allow me to keep LR 3.6 and benefit from built-in DPP features.
Comments or suggestions are welcome!
