Hello all,


I have noticed that the RAW files from the Fuji X100 when opened in Aperture (v. 3.5), compared to the in-camera processed JPEGS:


1) are significantly more saturated, especially in the BLUE channel (but also in the red one)

2) show a noticeable vignetting

3) show chromatic aberration (while the in-camera JPEG don't)


Did anybody else notice that?  It seems clear that Aperture does not correct for vignetting and chromatic aberration (which is NOT good), but also tends to blow out the saturation for the blue....


thanks for any comment

    giuseppe, does the recent raw update change anything for this problem? Is there any improvement?

    What should be have been changed, Leonie? Aperture has no automatic lens correction for CAs or vignetting, nor does it support in-camera picture styles with custom color settings. Maybe a future version of Aperture will. Lens correction and perspective control are highly desired features, I hope Apple will release that major update in a not too distant future.

    The over saturated colors. I did not expect lens correction to be added by a simple raw compatibity update, but we have seen problems with oversaturated colors been caused by faulty raw updates, for example  Camera Raw update (4.08) : 


    See My 2012 iMac is on acid NEF files stopped being displayed on iPhoto and Preview, and all pictures are turning red in my library for examples.


    This problem was fixed with Camera Raw update (4.09), but it may have introduced a problem with oversaturated colors, as seen in the examples above, that is why I have been asking -hoping that a new raw compatibility update might solve any such problems.
