Keith Cooper's recent activity

  • Replied in Cars
    Who knows? Maybe if one of the things wandered into where I was testing... :-) However, you'll need to look at other reviews/tests than any I'm likely to do, to see any. It may be heresy around ...
  • Replied in Cars
    Sorry for the delay - work and a family holiday intervened ;-) Anyway I've been looking more carefully at the lens working, and hope to have a review before too long. The lens exhibits very little ...
  • Replied in win10
    Ah, I've not tested it on a PC at all I'd suggest dropping them an email - they are pretty good at sorting stuff
  • Replied in Win or Mac NT
  • Another update... V2 includes a big update to GPU code with a claimed jump in performance. I'm away at the moment, so I've not tested it rigorously - but it's a free update. Next I'd like to see ...
  • Replied in inside view
    I've 'real' work to do, but whilst getting ready, the 24mm keeps nagging at me to find uses for it ;-) So, here's the view inside the tip  of my shoe. Not for any other reason than I couldn't see ...
  • I've just been sent the new Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens to have a look at for a review. It's been changed a bit from the version I briefly tested in 2017 in that the LED lighting and ...
  • No - I disagree I think I can evaluate it quite well thank you... You just need to appreciate why you are using it for any particular scaling and base your evaluation on the use you intend. I have ...
  • Created discussion thread Topaz AI GP updated to V1.1
    Topaz AI GP has been updated (free update from within software). CPU only processing is supported and the scaling now has settings for images with more or less detail/noise from ...
  • A free update, adds CPU processing (slower) if your GPU isn't up to it. The processing contains more image modelling under the hood, and options for images with different levels of blur and noise. ...
  • No offers with this one - I did get a 15% discount code I've mentioned in the review at http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/topaz-ai-gigapixel-review/
  • Yes, but I always hope most people skip over it... It's quite a few years since I specifically looked at resizing software, and my recollections (always suspect) are that it used to get more heated ...
  • With the PC building notes, I thought I'd just mention the old Mac Pro that I've been using for AI GP testing The Mac is a Mac Pro (Early 2009) OSX 10.11.6 (900GB SSD) Processor: 2 x 2.26 GHz ...
  • This is something I've wondered about - my quick answer would echo the previous reply - ask here ;-) I'm lucky enough to do quite a bit of printer testing and there are 2-3 factors at play here (I ...
  • It seems the concept of 'better' is as flexible and ill defined as it ever was. ;-) Having tested the software for a variety of uses I'm inclined to say that some may be and some may not be - your ...
  • Replied in Made up detail?
    I'm minded to inquire ...Why? The best example for 'plausible new detail' I've found was one I posted on the printing forum (since making huge prints is why I'd most likely use AI GP) I've included ...
  • Yes AI Clear is something I would like to add to my collection of Topaz reviews. However it will be primarily looking at it on its own. For the combination you've got, I'd suggest getting the demos ...
  • Yes, the new detail on the skyline (in my B&W example earlier) is impressive. I've tried several tests of images with lots of tree branches and you can sometimes see patches of more/less detail in ...
  • Yes, and others are putting this in some context ;-) Where people thought it was mysteriously turning 25MP into 100MP, then yes reality will catch up ;-) Given the software is specifically creating ...
  • Can't speak for others, but... No, not really - these are issues I looked at in the original review, where I noted the difference between RAW converter choice and whether to use any sharpening. Per ...
