I’m using my Sony RX10 iv and I have taken the advice of many here and downloaded dxo trial version and capture one free version. I just came home from a trip to the mountains and have about 1200 photos to go through so I’ll try these and see which one works best for me I’m sure I’ll have more questions as I go

Thank you so much!!

I think DXO's main advantages over C1P (not the free version) is in lens correction and it has miles better noise reduction, which might be useful with the small sensor.

C1 does tend to give nice popping images more easily.

C1 is a lot more expensive... especially if you have the full version, here's my history (note if you don't need new camera support you don't have to upgrade any of these):

Capture One Pro upgrade prices (there are deals sometimes, these are all deals):
v11 full £200
v12 upgrade £126.65
v20 (aka 13) upgrade £107.10
v21 upgrade £139.30
Total = £573.05
Passing on v22 upgrade at £199

DXO upgrade prices (there's always a deal):
OpticsPro 11 upgrade £55.00
PL1 Elite upgrade (new name for OpticsPro) £55.00
PL2 Elite upgrade £54.99
PL3 Elite upgrade £34.99
PL4 Elite upgrade £49.99
PL5 Elite upgrade £44.50
