Adobe Camera Raw 11.2 “Enhance Details”
11

In today’s update to Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic CC, Adobe introduced a new feature. Here’s some of what they have to say about it:

Enhance Details is introduced in Adobe Camera Raw 11.2. Powered by Adobe Sensei, Enhance Details produces crisp detail, improved color rendering, more accurate renditions of edges, and fewer artifacts. Enhance Details is especially useful for making large prints, where fine details are more visible. This feature applies to raw mosaic files from cameras with Bayer sensors (Canon, Nikon, Sony, and others) and Fujifilm X-Trans sensors.

I tried it on some of my informal lens test shots, and was unimpressed. The good news was that it appeared to do no harm. The bad news is that it didn’t do much good.

Then I tried it on a Siemens star image. Here are some highly magnified shots:

Standard processing

Enhanced details

That is very impressive. Most of the false color has been removed, with absolutely no loss in sharpness of unaliased detail.

Here’s another pair:

Enhanced

Next up was some fabric:

Those are GFX 50S shots, but it should work about the same with the Z7.

Here's another pair:

It doesn't seem to do anything about Z7 PDAF banding, though.
