My New Capture One Fuji Guide is now available

I’m happy to announce that I’ve finally finished my new Capture One guide for Fuji shooters. Called “Processing RAW files in Capture One 12” - snappy title, I know! - It is written to provide Fuji shooters with enough knowledge to get the best results when working with Fuji RAW files in Capture One.

Video - Capture One Express For Fujifilm: Getting Started and How to Use it

With the launch of the new free version of Capture One for Fuji shooters, I figured a lot of people would be trying the software for the first time.

With that in mind I created a video to give you an overview of how to use the software.

Understanding the Difference between Iridient Developer and Iridient X-Transformer

One of the questions that I get regularly from readers and viewers is: “what the difference is between Iridient X-Transformer and Iridient Developer?” If you are considering one of these for converting X-Trans files, it may be confusing for some people as to which one to choose, so here is what I hope will be a simple guide to deciding which software to use.
