Photo Ninja is quite impressive.

If you can deal with the time it takes for Photo Ninja to convert the image, I personally think it is better at getting a true color and detail than C1,Lightroom adn PS6. I tested all three and PhotoNinja is getting more detail out of my 5D than any of the other programs. It also seems to be more accurate at the color and shadows. I wonder why no one is really talking about it. It seems alot easier and less complicated than C1 Pro.
You definitely need a quad core processor and at least 8mb memory or it will slow down your computer.
