Fredrik Averpil’s Fujifilm X100s Camera Profile

Fredrik Averpil’s DNG Camera Profile and Presets for the Fujifilm X100s provide a more accurate representation of colors and makes Lightroom’s representation of colors more similar to Apple Camera RAW’s presentation. He bought an X-Rite ColorChecker so you don’t have to!

Please note, the camera profile has been made from a sunlight D55 and a fluorescent. I will replace the fluorescent with tungsten when I get the chance and provide such a dual illuminate camera profile as well.
