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.. Hopefully it’s helped you? Perhaps you’d consider helping me?
One way you could help me is if you want to buy from Amazon, 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.
If there’s a different product you’re considering, then perhaps you’d drop me a line and I can send you an associate link for it?
