  • Thanks. I am short one plug-in from owning the whole collection (Re-style). I suppose it will be cheaper to spend the extra $10 if I really like Glow (still in trial) than to pop $60 for a plug-in ...
  • This sounds enticing. I'm downloading the Ultimate 8 trial in faint hopes that it will work on my 3-year-old AMD Phenom II system (Pro 8 would not - kept crashing - though Pro 6 ran just fine as do ...
  • I have not seen this available for $40, just the discount to $49. How does one qualify for that? DJB
  • Commented on Nikon D7100 In-Depth Review preview

    Too late to edit, but I realized that the high ISO noise difference in these older tests is nowhere near as obvious as is the "new" studio scene comparison, and that's against the D5200 here, not...

  • Commented on Nikon D7100 In-Depth Review preview

    Unless I'm hallucinating, there seems to be a noticeable difference between the 5300 and the 7100 in terms of high ISO noise in RAW images, with the D7100 being cleaner. I did not expect to see...

  • Replied in A quick update
    I responded in another thread last week that I couldn't get v.9 to work in either plug-in or standalone mode. (Same issue - "stopped working.") That was on my AMD Phenom II machine which runs v. ...
  • Replied in Lightroom 5.7
    NEF files produced by the D610 opening and processing with no problem in LR v. 5.7 here.
  • OnOne support actually got back to me. They haven't solved the problem yet (I'm rounding up a bit more information), but are asking relevant questions. I'll report back if they can solve the ...
  • Nope, you're not alone - I installed the trial (alongside my existing 8.5 premium installation), and haven't been able to run in standalone, or as a plug-in to Lightroom 5.6 or PSCS6. AMD Phenom ...
  • This response may be way off base, and if so I apologize. If you haven't used DxO as a plug-in before, it's easy to miss if you're looking for familiar evidence that it installed.. Unlike ...
  • In my case, just sentimental, I guess. I expect to indulge in some small system expansion on the Nikon side, more likely in the form of one or two low-cost primes (like the 85mm 1.8 G) rather than ...
  • Sold my Canon gear (5D mk ii, 7D, and an assortment of L and non-L lenses). Kept the 700D Rebel and its the trio of surprisingly competent STM zoom lenses, for casual shooting). After a bit of ...
  • Thanks, Tony - I was never adept at math. Good catch. 290 seconds/95 seconds is indeed a 3.05 to 1 ratio. :-) Still, a subjectively noticeable difference, and that will bring value to the upgrade ...
  • I looked through all posts here so far, so if this was already specifically touched on, I missed it - sorry. Just ran a quick test of the time it takes to run Prime noise reduction between v. 9.5 ...
  • Long story made short - I just sold my 2 kit equivalent lenses - 18-55 IS and 55-250 IS (1st generation), as well as the EF-S 10-22, and picked up the STM versions of the 1st two and the EF-S ...
  • Puts a giant smile on my face. DJB
  • 3 seconds. i7 2.4Ghz (Toshiba Satellite S75t-A), 12GB RAM; 64 bit Win 8.1.
  • Excellent. I think you'll find great tools there. Later, check out DxO Optics Pro 9.5 (or whatever version is out by then). It does several things very well (most notably now noise reduction on ...
  • I was going to go into a long and painfully complex treatment about how DxO is in a different product class than Nik and Topaz, but I'll let someone with more patience and expertise tackle that ...
