Comparing Lightroom and Capture One Fuji RAW Processing

I compared Lightroom and Capture One Fuji RAW processing. These are crops from the same Fuji RAW image processed using Lightroom and Capture One. Both have a lot of noise at ISO 12800 but, to my eye, the Capture One image looks significantly better. I am thinking seriously of switching my RAW processing to Capture One. I love Lightroom but I cannot argue with the results of this test, which is typical of what I am seeing.

  • Camera: Fuji XT-3
  • Lens: Fuji 18-55 f2.8-4
  • ISO: 12800
  • Shutter Speed: 320
  • Aperture: f5.6
  • Focal Length: 24.3 mm
