Default Fujifilm X-T2 JPEG vs RAW


I have just very closely scrutinsing the images from yesterdays shoot for ELLE magazine. I shot everything in RAW + Fine JPEG...

In a WORD or a few...DO NOT SHOOT JPEG if you really care about your images. The difference is flagrant. JPEGs are mushy almost renedering like a very subtle water color effect. Now when I imported my RAW either using Adobe ACR or Iridient and disabling both thesharpening and noise reduction defaults to zero and importing in to Photoshop and then sharpening to my taste at 180 % at 0.4 pixels....JUST WOW!!!! As good or close to as good to my eyes as my Nikon D800e until of course you enlarge to 100% where the Nikon file is obviously 33% larger.

Avoid JPEG!

Here are two screen captures. The first is JPEG and the second is RAW

Yes.... Fuji's do have a habit of being heavy handed with NR on jpeg's....!!
