X-Pro1 JPEG vs RAW
Jan 16, 2013

There has been a lot of discussion recently because of the CaptureOne release, around in-camera JPEG vs various RAW conversions.

I did the following tests with all 3 prime lenses back in the summer - comparing out of camera JPEG from the X-Pro1, with files converted from RAW using ACR into Photoshop CS6. The JPEGs were with the default camera settings for sharpness etc - seeing as default seems to be the theme of the day.

The results are as I'd expected, but do go against some people's preconceptions around the 'ultimate' quality of the Fuji JPEG files

All of these are 100% crops

18mm Lens - Top JPEG - Bottom RAW

35mm Lens - Top JPEG - Bottom RAW

60mm Lens - Left JPEG - Right RAW

Pictures are worth a thousand words etc - clearly if you're thinking that RAW and especially RAW via Adobe is in some way inferior to Fuji JPEG, these may give you pause for thought.

I'll just add that I did not use the default settings in ACR in order to get max IQ out of the RAW files.
