Re: What programs for panorama stitching Mk II photos?

Affinity Photo will give you integrated panorama stitching, focus and exposure stacking, for less than £50. Cheaper than some of the stand-alone tools or Lightroom add-ins. I use mine in conjunction...

Re: Fujifilm X-H1

Re: Affinity's raw processing

I think the problem is that raw images are dull and flat by nature. Raw engines apply some sort of pre-processing on import to make them more palatable. I haven't come across any apart from Affinity...
