  • Ever is a long time. Be careful what you pray for.
  • I have my Q2 Monochrom's auto-ISO max set at 12,500 but would not hesitate to go as high as 50,000 if necessary. The best solution I have found to high noise (color or B&W) is DxO's Deep Prime. My ...
  • The only thing that matters is the final output, and the Q2 delivers great output in spades. Who really cares if its digitally corrected? Everyone already knows about this, and  users of the camera ...
  • No surprise to me, but Deep Prime wins by a wide margin. Some people are under the misapprehension that noise reduction works by blurring noise (and detail). That may be the case with some of the ...
  • I have become enamored of one of C1's custom style packs--Beyond B&W. It is very versatile with lots of choices and can produce stunning results, but there is a learning curve, mainly pertaining ...
  • Correct me if I am wrong, but I seem to remember reading that DxO's Deep Prime removes noise before demosaicing. Is that even possible?
  • "Incomparably better image quality..." Considering that we're discussing small differences in very fine lenses, your statement deserves entry in the "Hyperbole of the Year" competition.
  • Strong thumbs up for Capture One. The UI is very flexible and intuitive, but where C1 really beats the competition is with its layered raw workflow.  It is so simple and so powerful. ON 1 PhotoRAW ...
  • You're right, I should not have made such a definitive statement. However, that is the opinion of a great many professional photographers and retouchers for whom Capture One is the raw ...
  • I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Capture One.  Not only is it a superior (IMO) raw converter with a layered raw workflow and the best color management of any image editor, but it also has a ...
  • In my mind, having a layered workflow in the raw stage is more than just "appealing." It is a game changer. For most images, it makes Photoshop superfluous. Of course, you can get good results ...
  • If you always shoot in decent light at low to moderate ISOs, then you will have little need for high powered NR programs. Some of us, however, shoot in low light at very high ISOs, so our needs ...
  • I have to agree with this assessment. I have been using both Neat Image and Topaz Denoise-AI for the past year or so. They each have strengths and weaknesses, but if was forced to pick only one, ...
  • I am finding the Magic Brush to be a fairly useful tool. Like all things digital, it takes time to become familiar with how it works.
  • Thanks to Digital Nigel for presenting this interesting study. The main takeaway message for me is that Deep Prime is an incredibly good program at any setting. In my own use, I tend to select ...
  • I'm trying to think of what new features or improvements to existing features I would want in C1-22, and the thing that comes to the top of my mind is noise reduction on a level with DxO's Deep ...
  • Agreed!  Until recently, I used ON1 Photo RAW as an all-purpose raw converter/editor and very rarely felt the need to open Photoshop. The same is true of Capture One, and I prefer its tools, ...
  • I have followed the advice of the some of the previous posters and tried PhotoLab 4 vs PureRAW. I must agree that PL4 does an overall better job than PR, even with default settings. Hence, the ...
  • Yes, I am aware of linear DNGs. However, I am OK with DxO's demosaicing on the very occasional image that I would put through PureRAW, just as long as I still have access to Capture One's editing ...
  • Where might the Deep Prime settings in PureRAW be found? They seem to be very well hidden.
