How should I get the shadow details from X-S1 RAF files?
Oct 7, 2013


I recently started doing astrophotography using my Fuji X-S1. The OOC JEPG files looked very flat but a little tweaking in DarkTable showed a lot of stars from shadows. I always shoot RAW+JPEG so i immediately switched to RAF file hoping i will get better results and followed the same process as i did with JPEG but i am unable to get any details from RAF file (not even as good as OOC JPEG). Can someone guide me the process of getting shadow details from X-S1 RAF files? Please feel free to tweak and reload the file. I am attaching OOC JPEG, modified JPEG and OOC RAW. (I have tried both SILKYPIX and DarkTable.)


DarkTable exported. Applied Shadow recovery and little tweaking with base curve.
