Evaluation

This RAW conversion software has been developed specially for use with the company’s X series cameras. What makes it unique is the fact that it is not affected by the processing capabilities of the PC to which it is connected, using the camera’s own image processing engine to ensure high-speed processing. The level of consideration demonstrated in this software differs from the approach used in ordinary RAW conversion software, reaching a level only found in a dedicated product. The UI is similar to that of the camera itself, enabling intuitive operation, while the screen color scheme employs the gray used for the company’s lab products, facilitating judgments about the precise color of photographs. Once you actually experience how fast it is, you gain a powerful understanding that speed really is everything. And it is precisely because of that speed that the user can make adjustments based on trial and error without a trace of stress, helping to produce high-quality finished images, while further enhancing the appeal of the camera itself. We all accorded high praise to the attitude demonstrated by the manufacturer, who continues to steadily issue version upgrades, even though this software is a free download.
