Why don't you show him what you can do with RPP?

I'm not really sure how to get the most out of raw so wondering if anyone has any pointers, particularly when compared to the OOC jpg from the X-E2.

Anyway, my query is how would you go about getting more out of such a shot using the raw file and information.

I would use DCRAW or/And RPP for the RAW File.

Here is an excerpt, quite easy to follow for a novice http://www.raw-photo-processor.com/RPP/Overview.html :

You may use RPP for these carefully chosen operations:

  1. •4-channel white balance - this is probably the most important operation in Raw processing and it has to be applied at very early stages. RPP supports various ways of working with white balance - automatic detection, “as shot” (taken from camera), custom white balance from neutral areas and color tone adjustments on “cold - warm” scale.
  2. •Linear and compressed exposure compensations - another very sensitive step, should use high precision math to preserve shadows and highlights and it is almost impossible to make it properly during post-processing in Photoshop. Compressed compensation allows to preserve highlights in more film-like style instead of clipping used in traditional linear exposure compensation.

He uses Capture One on a trial basis! Maybe helpful to read the OP title, before you come up with this "I would only read the bible in hebrew" ...

He says: (again in the title) Getting started ...

I have downloaded his file and will give it a try too, but not tonight too late, but there are already a fewacceptable conversions. How about this: Why don't you do a conversion and post it here? I work in IT so would be genuinely interested - as I am sure would be others.

What do you say??
