I was doing a major organization of *all* my photos this weekend now that I got Aperture 2.0 Major is an understatement... pruning more than 45,000+ shots (of course most of them, snapshots) since the time I was snapping away and didn't know any better. I even found shots of past colleagues and such. Yeah Paul, that includes you.
And then I find a batch of Fuji F700/F710 RAFs. RAF is the Fuji raw format.... Aperture can't develop them, so I decide to give a spin in the LightRoom trial- Adobe always had issues develping F700/F710 SR raw files, they have improved *a lot* but still there's some issues. Nevertheless I was able to just test how well that "2 stops better than the market" dynamic range was.
Here's the original snapshot:
And here's the shot with -4EV's and a bit of the "highlight recovery" (hardly necessary to do even):
And this on a dinky ultra compact "point and shoot" camera... like this:
:-( Long live SR sensors on the P&S level, victims of the insane megal pixel race....
