    Any update on ProStandard profiles for Fujifilm cameras?  X-T2, X-T3, X-T4. X-Pro series, and GFX-Series would be excellent.

    Christian,

    As I recall there was a  comment some months ago that point out that with Fuji cameras and especially where the Film Simulations are available, the entire processing engine used was, in effect, the engine functionality that has subsequently allowed new colour profiles to be provided for other cameras. 

    So the understanding from that was that the colour profiles developed for Fuji cameras (or certainly recent Fuji cameras for which the Film Simulation have been made available in agreement with Fuji)  were effectively using "ProStandard" all the time.

    In that case the question then becomes  - what do you think could be improved in the Fuji interpretations?

    My personal observations looking at files for older cameras from other manufacturers for which ProStandard options are available alongside the previous profiles is that the changes are not usually easy to see other than in specific use cases and typically for specific colours and needs. However, what I have looked at was very limited and may have missed discovering situations where differences were more obvious and useful.

    Putting that aside, I would suggest maybe making a Feature Request that describes the shortfall you observe in colour interpretation and maybe add the same observation to this thread as well to cover all angles that would communicate your suggestions to the development team.

    It is my understanding that ProStandard Camera Profiles and Fuji Film Simulations are entirely different things.  The film simulations are 'Styles' that can be applied to whole images to provide a certain 'look' after RAW conversion, just like C1's own Styles work.  The ProStandard Camera profiles, however, are a second generation RAW conversion engine.  This was explained in the launch video, where the example of a blue sky was shown that had areas of different brightness, where the original RAW processing engine would sometimes introduce a different hue into the lighter parts of the sky.  The aim of the ProStandard engine was to more faithfully preserve the colours in processing the image, to avoid the need to correct the change in hue using masks etc.  It is good that C1 have taken the step to improve their RAW processing software, but it is not good that they have made no attempt to roll this out to all but a few cameras, none of which are Fujifilm ones.  It is also a worry that technical advisors respond repeatedly to requests for Fujifilm ProStandard camera profiles by saying that we should be satisfied that we have the Fuji film simulations instead, it suggests they do not understand the product they are advising on.  C1's failure to offer Fuji ProStandard profiles has been noticed by DxO, who have now taken the decision to invest in developing a RAW processing engine for X-Trans sensors.  Their Beta version is decent, and will surely improve in the weeks ahead.  If C1 don't deliver on the enhanced processing engine they announced, they will soon see users move away to other software products.
