For this post I’m asking a simple question… and I’m asking it of MYSELF, for your mileage may differ….
The X-Pro2 offers a new black and white film simulation: Acros.
Much was written about this look when the X-Pro2 first landed.
It was pretty much universally praised…
Can it really be that in this day and age of RAW and RAW convertors and books, articles, and videos about post processing that a camera can really deliver images that we’re PERSONALLY happy with Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC)?
Is this really a new way of working?
Let’s dive in and see some SOOC examples!
So MY answer to MY question?
SOOC Acros is superb, occasionally I’ve given it a tweak in post, but literally that – a tweak.
For me the answer is an emphatic ‘yes’ – Acros is a new way for ME (your mileage may vary)
I’ve always personally found it a little trickier to get the monochrome look (than I do with colour processing) that I want from my RAW shots, and Acros has definitely made this process a lot easier for me.
A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d considering making a donation?

One way you could help me is if you want to buy ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING from Amazon, (that’s anything; cameras, books, shoe polish, whatever) if you do so using the links below, then I will receive a small percentage of your expenditure, and you will pay NO MORE than you would have paid anyway.
This will also work if you USE THOSE LINKS to click through to your own country.
To do this, click a link above, scroll to the bottom of the page, then select your country from the drop down menu, as shown below
Another way you could help, especially if you don’t like Amazon, but do like me, is by making a donation
The donate button is in the top right hand corner or can be found on the link below
Thanks Very Much!
