Brian Thomas: re: No in-camera Raw conversion option

Sony claims to offer a free downloadable app that will give the a6500 in-camera Raw conversion. Has anyone tried this option? Does it work?

https://docs.sony.com/release//Manual_4690670111.pdf
In the section devoted to PlayMemories Camera apps at the top of page 31 of the a6500 pdf version of the manual it says:

Image Data Converter
You can develop and edit RAW images using various adjustment functions like tone curve and sharpness.

On article Gear of the Year: Richard's choice - Fujifilm X-T2 (172 comments in total)

Richard,

As you probably know there is a growing sense of disappointment with the "frustratingly slow" joystick echoing thru the Fuji online forums. Some users restrict the number of focus points available to deal with this perceived shortcoming. Previously, in comments here below one of your Fuji articles you suggested that a properly implemented touch-screen might be a better way to navigate a sea of 400 focus points. However, while your early criticisms of the "laggy" Sony a6500 touch screen implementation have been "seconded" by almost every review I've seen, I haven't seen any formal reviews criticize the speed of the Fuji joystick. So, I'd appreciate it if you commented about that here. Are you truly as satisfied with the Fuji joystick's utility as the above article implies?

Brian

damian5000: An AF point joystick...:/ how quaint. Welcome to 2006, boys.

So, Richard, as a left-eyed shooter (like me) on the X-T2 your nose doesn't get in the way of the joystick?

Or to put it another way, the joystick isn't any easier for you to control on the X-pro2?

Once again the central question about the iPad for photographers is not addressed. How effectively can you use it to upload RAW files to the cloud? This is what traveling photographers need to do. Sort thru their pictures & upload the real keepers to a safe place.

The rest is pretty much in all the ads & spec sheets. I don't have an iPad to try this out.

Thanks, Richard for answering my question about the shutter sound. Interestingly, in your video presentation, your subjective statement that the shutter sound "is about average" is the most valuable piece of information for me.
