New Silkypix Developer Studio Pro 8
« on: November 30, 2018, 12:59:48 PM »

Has anyone used:
Silkypix Developer Studio Pro 8 and how does it compare to LR when shooting with Fuji X trans cameras.  I use LR and Iridient X-Transformer and they work a treat.  Silkypix Developer Studio Pro 8 is at a Very reduced price at the moment.

I have used v8 and now v9, which came out about 2 or 3 months ago.  It is a full featured race converter and works particularly well with Fujifilm cameras.  It is a bit quirky and does not have the more polished user interface and experience of Capture One, for example.  It does a lot of behind the scenes automatic analysis of each image to apply various levels of demosaic sharpening and noise reduction, etc.  There is a series of YouTube videos made by a guy named Mark Rouleau that goes over most of the basic controls and there is a small Facebook group that is very responsive to questions, bug discussions, etc.

I find that it does struggle with Fujifilm files that are underexposed by more than a couple of stops, primarily in that the color desaturated significantly as a result of pushing the exposure in post (or, as it is often called - pushing the ISO in post, for isoless sensors). 

v9 adds some tools but start with v8 and see how you like it.

His voice sounds synthesized and is not very pleasant.  So much so, I couldn't stand watching the whole video.
