Raw processing software developer Iridient Digital has updated its flagship Macintosh MacOS product Iridient Developer to version 3.1.4. Iridient Developer is reportedly favoured by photographers seeing to gain the sharpest, most highly detailed renderings of raw files from Fujifilm cameras with non-Bayer X-Trans sensors.
Iridient Developer also supports non-X-Trans Bayer sensor-equipped cameras, notably Fujifilm’s recently released GFX 50S medium format camera as well as over 620 other cameras.
The list of new cameras supported by version 3.1.4 of Iridient Developer includes:
- Canon – G9 X Mark II and EOS M6.
- Fujifilm – GFX 50S, X-T20, X100F and X-A10.
- Leica – M10
- Panasonic – DC-GH5 and DC-FZ80 aka DC-FZ82.
- Pentax – KP
- Sigma – sd Quattro H, DNG format only.
Iridient Digital’s other software product, Iridient X-Transformer, is currently under development and has been updated to beta version 3. Iridient X-Transformer converts Fujifilm X-Trans and non-X-Trans RAF raw image files into open standard DNG raw files.
- Iridient Digital – Film Style Preset Pack 5 for Fujifilm APS-C model cameras
- Iridient Digital –Fujifilm Film Style Preset Pack 1 for Fujifilm compact model cameras
The color presets for APS-C models have been improved, especially for the extreme ends of the tonal range (dark shadows and bright highlights). The Vivid style in particular should show much better results in dark shadows and very bright colors in many cases should show more gradual transition to clipping and better saturation.
These film emulation style presets are intended to produce a similar look to the X-Trans in-camera conversion styles for Classic Chrome, Standard/Provia, Soft/Astia, Vivid/Velvia, ProNegStd, ProNegHi, Monochrome, Monochrome+Ye, Monochrome+R, Monochrome+G and Sepia.
