Re: Must see, comparison for detail NEX-5N out of camera jpeg, DXO Optics 8 and Photo Ninja

Scott,

May I suggest 2 things

(1) You change the setting of the 'preset' to 'neutral'. The main effect this has is to move the colors to something approximating what you might find in LR. (Personally I prefer this for a lot of my photos in any case.) But I think you will find that setting best for comparison purposes.

(2) You should really look at PN's ability to reclaim highlights (even totally blown highlights). On this particular feature it is without a doubt far better than LR and DXO. (I actually bought the program on the strength of this feature alone - not being totally blown away by it initially - and it was only after further use that I got to like it in its entirety.)

An example....

Lightroom with highlights at -100

Photo Ninja

Of course, this maybe a feature that is of no use to you.
