Welsh: If the new camera (at whatever price point) had a Bayer-patterned sensor, I would consider getting back into Fujifilm…

@RJGee: in CaptureOne, you get the Fujifilm's "File Simulation" right in the software directly using RAWs.

Well, everything is subjective. DXO does a fair job too.

stevevuoso: Congrats on 10 years. Now give us Bayer sensors.

Just use the free of charge CaptureOne. Solved.

Nikoolix: Now lets hope they return to the X-T2 type 2-way tilt display on X-T5 as it's much quicker to adjust for waist level shooting. The swivel variant can be kept to the X-S lineup for vlogging.

Indeed. It makes the difference between immediate purchase or just keep the X-T3!

Nicolas Det: Soldered RAM, soldered SSD, missing important ports (for me), not reparable...

I would prefer a cheaper more flexible PC. Even if it last not so long on battery.

Impressive chip anyway!

Ask Apple!

Class A: Disappointing to see such "one click" approaches to stitching and HDR. There is no way to tweak the end results and users are already experiencing examples where such manual tweaking (e.g., manually tweaking control points or locally masking images) is necessary.

There should have been more general support for combining multiple images, allowing one to locally blend in parts etc.

I hope this isn't a further step towards dumbing down C1 so that it becomes more appealing to LR users.

N.B., the keystone tool is till broken, so current users cannot get their software fixed, even if they paid for the C1 22 upgrade. I'll be sitting this one out.

For HDR, you get the whole adjustment in C1 using the DNG. To me, it's a lot of better as others tool.

brycesteiner: I purchased C1 21 earlier this week and just a few hours later they send me an advertisement for C1 22. I asked if I could get the upgrade, otherwise I would have waited. They said no since it was buried on their website. Only the people who purchased it earlier between October and November specified dates.
That is disappointing.

I'm pretty confident they will upgrade you licence.. Make a request.

Raist3d: Capture one, I love your highlight recovery and how you render, but call me when you have Dxo deepPRIME level noise reduction and can edit directly from a memory card without having to import first.

But good for CaptureOne lovers.

You can actually edit directly from the cards (or anymore actually) and use PureRAW to "clean" high ISO files.

FujifilmXT3: I can't see why anyone would buy this over the new Apple MacBook Pro. And why bother reviewing this slug ? Did Dell pay for the review ?

People habe different tastes. I personally prefer the Razer PCs
Windows 10 is usable.

X-T30. Or better X-T3 !

Screen and controls are really not mind on the X-S10.

wilberforce_1: Forget the top spec model used by the author, at least for photo editing. I bought the base 14” model for $2000 a week ago and it positively flies through lightroom and photoshop, fantastic screen. I tried to bring it to its knees by running about 20 memory and processor intensive apps simultaneously and it just kept going without the slightest hiccup or stutter, barely hear any fans, amazing. Faster and more efficient than my 2020 imac

@Terrano:
the newer MBP have better displays and the pictures just look better. However, the old MBP could be calibrated and it's pretty accurate (even if missing contrast in comparaison).

dlb41: I bought a Macbook Pro last year to replace my PowerBook from 2003. I find the keyboard impossible to use and I'll have to buy a separate keyboard. I don't use the touchbar and would have preferred the F keys.

because of hours using them and compare them together.

Fortunately (or unfortunately), modern western people use a lot of computers..

Hi!

I guess it depends of ones needs. To my taste for "standard" editing (CaptureOne, and some raster editing), it's enough. Although, I would not really merge panoramas, or high resolution HDR using an old MBP.

PS: My MBP 2012 is actually faster that my friends's 2017's..

CaPi: That the 11th gen Intel CPUs are not great just adds to this success.

I recommend skipping additional graphics cores in favor of battery life.
There is an impact

Intel got some issues with their fab. But still, the 10th and 1th generation are not very far away, and with Alder Lake they could fill the gap.

I'm really impressed that Intel can still compete even if they have a more complex core (x86 instruction set) and worse fab (for now)... This is really an accomplishement.
With the new Alder lake (new architecture, new fab) Intel will probably beat the M1 or stay in the benchmark head. Hardware scheduling assistant looks impressive.

Current computers are really fast for office/photo work, in my opinion. I am still using the MBP 2012 (!), and it works great for that purposes.

Newer and fast computers are only really needed for 8k, 3D rendering und co (?)
