Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling JPEG image quality, part of Fuji X-T1: Tips and Techniques.
- When you shoot in JPEG mode, the raw data…that the camera captures is converted to a JPEG file,…a process which involves a lot of the same types…of corrections and edits that you might make in Photoshop.…If you're unclear on exactly what the difference is…between raw and JPEG, check out my Learn Photography,…Shooting in Raw Mode course.…You'll find a number of features in the X-T1's menu…that only affect JPEG files, because they are options…that let you take some control of the…in-camera raw to JPEG conversion.…First and foremost among these, are the film simulation…options found in the first shooting menu.…
Right down here at the bottom,…film simulation.…These give you 11 different options.…Some of them modeled on actual Fuji films of old.…I usually shoot in raw format, but I have to say…that the JPEG quality of the X-T1 is astonishing…and the color and contrast treatments…provided by these film simulations…are sophisticated and beautiful.…I could give you descriptions of them,…but a better way to learn about them…
In this course, photographer and educator Ben Long demonstrates a set of customization strategies aimed at making the Fuji X-T1 far more responsive and effective. That way, you can focus on composition and creativity, and let your camera handle the rest.
