It’s a day of constantly changing weather…

… and in the course of a couple of hours it turned from bright, hot sunlight to cloudy grey and cold. 

So I swapped between square images in colour with the Panasonic Lumix GX8 and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro and 16:9 monochrome with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF 50mm f/2.0 R WR. 

I processed both sets of images in the latest DxO PhotoLab Elite with DxO FilmPack Elite and DxO ViewPoint but chose DeepPRIME XD demosaicing and denoising for the GX8’s Bayer raw files and DeepPRIME for the Fujifilm X-Trans raw files. 

I look forward to the day when DxO PhotoLab Elite gains parity for processing Fujifilm X-Trans with the Lumix GX8’s Bayer raw files.

These JPEG files were exported directly from DxO PhotoLab Elite but I found that the X-Trans files needed to be exported as Bicubic Sharpen whereas the Bayer files only needed export as Bicubic.

Given the choice, I’d process everything with DeepPRIME XD for its greater detail and tonal separation especially in the low values and do without Bicubic Sharpen altogether.

The colour photographs are for a colleague and the monochrome one is for our project photographing local suburbs and their high streets as if frames in a movie.
