Woohoo!!! Finally – the best raw developer software on the market just made the best cameras on the market even better. Phase One and Fujifilm have teamed up to give us Fujifilm users all the goodness the Capture One raw converter software has to offer. Yep. Everything. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. Even….. *drumroll* TETHERING!!!
There will be a free (YES – FREE!!!) Fujifilm only software solution called Capture One Fujifilm Express, without tethering and some other functions, while the full software package will give you everything you need. Including tethering. Did I say we just got tethering?!
I’ve been hassling both Fujifilm and Phase One about this since 2014, so I feel it’s time for some bubbles! Cheers! And if you decide to switch to the best raw converter on the market (I can promise you – no worms here!), feel free to use the AMBEIVIND discount code when buying Capture One for an even better price.
Now if you excuse me, I have to go and tether…
As many of you might have guessed, Capture One Pro 10 is my favourite choice for processing rawfiles from Fuji cameras, both the X-T1, X-T2 and X-Pro2. But many prefer Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw because then they have built in support for the excellent Fujifilm film simulations. I don’t know if Phase One is working on their own version of the film simulations in the Capture One software, but I really hope they are. In the meantime, there are a few third party solutions out there, so I’ll give you a couple of links here to ICC profiles that can be downloaded and installed.
There is one set mentioned in a discussion thread on the DPReview forums, and you can download those by clicking here. I haven’t tried these myself, but the download should include ICC profiles for both the X-Trans2 and X-Trans3 sensors. ***UPDATE 8. Jan 2018 *** These profiles are the same as the ones below (thanks to Ivan for letting me know in the comment section).
And then there’s another set mentioned in the Fuji-X-Forum for the X-T1 and X-Pro2, and those ICC profiles can be downloaded by clicking here. I have used these with both the X-Pro2 and X-T2, and they seem pretty good. I can’t say how accurat ethey are compared to the in-camera profiles or the Adobe ones, but they seem ok. PS! To make these work for the X-T2, you just rename the XPRO2 part of the filename to XT2. So for instance, if the filename of the profile is “FujiXPRO2-ACROS_ARGB_V2”, you just rename it to “FujiXT2-ACROS_ARGB_V2” and should work just fine.
For both of these you will find details on how to install them in the forums threads, but the short version is that on my Windows 10 machine I just copied them to the “…\Program Files\Phase One\Capture One 10\Color Profiles\DSLR” folder on my computer. On a Mac I believe the correct folder should be “Macintosh HD/Library/ColorSync/Profiles”.
