I've been religiously shooting in RAW (ARW) and processing in C122 Sony and quite pleased with the results I'm getting. The main issue I often find is noise now that I have been made aware of it!

Where C1 has a reasonable noise manage system, Topaz is definitely far superior having used it several times (trial version). Unfortunately the full version is way out of my price range - is there another, good, cheaper software by any chance?

I use DxO PureRAW in combination with C1, a very effective combination for any iso value up to about 3500.

It is 129 € https://shop.dxo.com/en/dxo-pureraw-2.html

DxO has sales from time to time, with discounts in the 25-50% range. It's likely that PhotoLab 6 will be released in about a month, and there's usually a discount on all the DxO products at that time. I don't know if PureRAW will also get an upgrade at the same time.

..could well be and interesting for TS to look for. I am using PureRaw and had a trial version of PureRaw-2. From image quality I could see no difference. Since I am using an old GPU my computer uses the CPU instead and it does not take advantage from further "GPU acceleration" claimed for PureRaw-2. Actually I don't care too much since I process all new images in a batch (and take a nap, beer or coffee...).
