New Monochrome mode in SPP 5.5
2

Hi

I have just installed the new SPP 5.5. I tested the new monochrome mode on some old high iso images. I had one ISO 6400 image of my daughter that previously looked like it was painted with a broad brush. Using the new SPP 5.5 monochrome mode and choosing mostly blue in the colour mixer really cleaned up the image a lot.

I'm wondering if the colour mixer is drawing from the three layers in the sensor. If one choose mainly the red the image get really noisy, green less so and blue the least.

I also tested a ISO 3200 image I had taken and there was a huge improvement.

Time for more testing.
