If Capture One Express for Sony is still free of charge than that is a perfect way to start with RAW processing. However, I read at DPR that C1 stopped with this free version. But I would say just give it a try.

At this time I would not recommend a full C1 to start with; DxO PL-5 with DeepPrime NR would be a better choice for non-professional use.

Why wouldn't a professional use it? Yes, Photoshop is preferable for publishing but most professionals are not in the publishing industry.

C1 has the tethering option; in C1 you see real time the effect of NR (okay, that would also be possible with DxO non-AI options)..

C1's NR is really inadequate; I'm often shocked at the poor quality images it produces. I couldn't tolerate using C1 for that reason, quite apart from the clunky UI.

Tom, I am sorry to say so but I am really afraid that you did not master to use C1..

The problem was I couldn't get the Noise Reduction I wanted at a higher ISO, the primary reason I wanted to shoot RAW. PL5 Deep Prime gave me great results at ISO 3200 and acceptable results at 6400 with my RX10iv with no effort at all. So you are right. I wasn't willing to put the effort into mastering C1.
