Fuji X-trans sensors and new ACR
ACR 7.4 and Lightroom 4.4 are out, with new and improved support for X-trans sensors. The x10 is not technically one of those, I guess, but I'm pretty sure that it uses the same technology. Has anyone else taken a look at reprocessing x10 files with the new ACR/LR? (What does "reprocessing" mean in this context, anyway?) To me, revisiting x10 raw files does not seem to end up with different results, but I have no idea what to look for, or how to be sure that I'm actually using the updated code. I'm not even sure if I should be seeing anything different!

I have not checked carefully, and I actually can't really find a picture where the difference would be noticeable and worthwile.
To be sure what process you're using, I guess it's the last entry (bottom right) in the "develop" module. I can choose from 2003, 2010 (introduced with LR3 I imagine) and 2012. Switch from one to another while zoomed on a face (it seems that there were problems with skin tones) on a .raf photo, that should allow you to see if there are any differences.
As I have written here above, I have tried to find an image, but I can find only .jpeg files that would correspond. Silly me!
EDIT: I have found one or two, but mostly in such high ISO sensitivities (800 to 3200) that noise absorbs any differences I may otherwise notice... And after noise reduction, you can imagine how smoothened the image is!
Jetez un oeil à ma galerie if you feel like it! And it's a bit void as of now, but I also have a Nikonians blog
Auta i lomë! And my Nikon's only awaiting daylight...
