    A few weeks ago I photographed my first wedding with Fuji equipment, after using Canon for 24 years. Both the X-Pro 1 and the X-T20 gave me sharp, detailed files that mostly look better than the ones I was getting from my Canon 6D. The X-Pro RAF files were converted in Capture One, and the X-T20 files in Silkypix. I've been making final adjustments today in Photoshop.

    One thing that struck me as I looked through the files is that some of the men's faces seem very red. Is this a known problem with Fuji files?

    Not that I'm aware of Dave, and I've been shooting Fuji X series for a few years now. Perhaps the men had all imbibed rather too much! Seriously, are the ladies faces not similarly affected? Are you able to post some examples?

    Actually, blown out/exaggerated reds is a known Canon characteristic. It's never been an issue on the Fuji sensors. Nikon sensors are known to blow out blues.

    Never, ever experienced exaggerated reds in 14 years of Canon digital, shooting 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 5D, 60D, and 6D.

    Then consider yourself lucky. It's especially problematic shooting musicians.
