  • I am very happy with On1 Nonoise. I should say that I am not a pixel peeper. I am an M43 (Lumix) user and it has given my photos (esp low light photos) new life. I should say that I also have PL5 ...
  • They have become very quiet.  Hopefully there will be some news soon. They try to release upgrades to all three products in their suite at the same time. I am hoping for a file manager, possibly a ...
  • Replied in Demosaicing
    I have all you have mentioned and will give that workflow a try and see if I can see a difference. I hope you try On1. The masking is so powerful one you learn it and the effects and sky ...
  • Replied in Demosaicing
    Let me cut to the chase. I dont use Adobe any longer. My central hub is On1 and I start from there. I have PL5 and affinity. I love On1 but the reviews sometimes ding it on its demosaicing .   I ...
  • Replied in Demosaicing
    My camera is M43 and I have PL5. I could try loading images I am really interested in PL5 and process there and then transfer the DNG(linear) ti On1 which is my preferred editor. I might try the ...
  • Created discussion thread Demosaicing
    I have been thinking about my processing and again looked over a bunch of reviews of several products and in many cases the weakness was thought to be the initial demosaicing. Is there any value in ...
  • Created discussion thread Looking for Affinity rumor's
    Happy Affinity user. I have had Affinity for several years as it went from 1.1 to now 1.10 each time without charge and with multiple user upgrades each time. I keep waiting for 2.0 and am ...
  • On1 is (in my opinion) not a replacement for photoshop but a replacement for LR. I made the switch from adobe and use ON1 for most LR tasks and go to Affinity for PS tasks. On1 has Limited (but ...
  • I made the switch from LR and PS 2 years ago and I am extremely happy with the workflow and results. I also use On1 as my base and use NIK and Topaz  and PL5 tools as needed. My NR results with ...
  • On1 is two major products now. I have for a long time now been On1 centric and it is my core processing program. I am happy with that. With the latest upgrade, I can round trip many, but not all ...
  • I am having good results from ON1. I switched away from Adobe+PS several years ago and Now use On1+Affinity. I have PL4 and have used deep prime, but my workflow is much simpler now. I am not a ...
  • Portugal was beautiful. Loved the North, Porto, The Douro and Obidos. Grenada and the Alhambra were fantastic. I got the number of lenses right.  I brought an arctic butterfly for lens cleansing, a ...
  • Just back from 3 weeks in Portugal and Andalusia, Spain. As usual, I over packed. I brought my 14-140mm and 25mm 1.7 for low light. I also brought my 8-18mm but never used it. I find that I can ...
  • Created discussion thread A reminder
    This is not in any way a slam against Nikon or ff  cameras. I was just reminded why I love the M 43 format. The new Z9 is 3 pounds without any lenses. My G9 is 3 1/2 pounds with my heaviest lens, ...
  • Replied in city backpack
    Given the size and shape of my bag, I went with the older flatter wider version of the insert. This already has rings for a shoulder strap. The downside is that this version  sits lower in the bag ...
  • Replied in city backpack
    Because there wasnt a good way that I knew then to easily carry photo equipment . I generally used wraps to transport but didnt have a good way to carry on my forays. I had other photo bags that ...
  • Replied in city backpack
    Since I posted above, I found the Tenba BYOB camera insert. It will fit into an LL Bean Ridge runner 25 backpack that I have been taking as a Travel backpack for years. It has a very good ...
  • Created discussion thread city backpack
    I like to carry a lightweight day backpack when I travel. I would like a recommendation on a city travel bag. Walk all day carrying a mirrorless usually out of the bag, 2 additional lenses (small ...
  • This is good news for LR users. It is a very powerful feature and appears well implemented. It is one of the reasons I chose On1 which has had capabilities like this for a long time . Steve
  • I am a long term former LR user and although I had PS really didnt use it much. For reasons that have been hashed out endlessly here before, I didnt like the subscription model and looked for ...
