WCL-X100 Conversion Lens for Fuji X100 Corrections?

Discussion in 'Mirrorless Digital Cameras' started by eric friedemann, Aug 13, 2013.

  1. I have the Fuji X100 and love it. I bought the WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera that turns the 35mm f/2.0 FF-equivalent lens on the camera into a 28mm f/2.0 FF-equivalent lens.
    The design is amazing- the 28mm-equiv. lens takes the same filter and hood as the camera with standard lens, and the fit and finish are perfect. With the wide conversion lens, as best I can tell, results are as contrasty and tack-sharp as without.
    That said, with upgraded firmware, the camera corrects the wide conversion lens' correctable- but noticeable- barrel distortion in-camera, but, of course, doesn't do the same for RAW images ... and I almost always work from RAW images.
    There is no Adobe Camera Raw automatic correction for the X100 with the wide converter- at least not yet. Has anyone worked out a correction for the X100 wide conversion lens in Photoshop's Lens Correction? If so, what correction are you using? Thanks!
     
  2. Have you checked DxO for corrective ssoftware?
     
  3. Charles, I haven't, and I wouldn't buy another processing program just to get RAW lens correction support for one lens on a camera I use mostly for grab shots.
     
  4. If you have the time and patience, it may well be an interesting exercise to try to create one for yourself using Adobe Lens Profile Creator.
