  • It's no longer free - sorry. 14.99 USD Super Denoising - Photo Noise Reduction By XiuXia Yang at https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1016781856
  • I have the iPhone app - I haven't tried it (yet). It looks like it records a few images and then 'fuses' them together to remove the noise(?) Anyway, please do report back here on your results with ...
  • The app is available/downloaded from the Mac App store, so I think it's not likely to be dodgy (if that's what you're implying :/) - I have something in place that allows me to block apps reaching ...
  • I think you need to zoom 100% and view on a (fairly) decent monitor connected via DVI (digital to digital). I'm surprised you cannot see it - check the background flatter areas. Left is denoised, ...
  • https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1016781856 Just spotted this - had a quick download and play around with a 'sandy' dpQ file. I have not tested it fully but thought it was worth a heads up here. (Not ...
  • Something else you can try - depending on what editing software you have: 1. Duplicate the image into a new layer 2. Average blur this layer 3. Invert this layer colour 4. Set the mode of this ...
  • I have a grey lens cleaning cloth which I use to set the custom white balance, on some occasions I have also used a white sheet of paper to set it. It's fairly easy to quickly set the CWB. I would ...
  • Have you tried playing around with the white balance setting in SPP? Or perhaps before you take a picture, set up a custom white balance for your scene?
  • I've bought dozens of bags...and what I settled on... I wrap the camera in a microfibre cloth and then put this in a drawstring toiletry bag - this I then place in a zipped makeup (?) bag (which ...
  • I use the EZShare card with my iPad Pro (ShutterSnitch app) - I find it really useful to check sharpness, focus point, exposure etc. when I'm shooting with models. It also allows the model to ...
  • Download the following x3f_wrapper_mac_deploy.0.56.2b.zip form https://github.com/Kalpanika/x3f_wrapper/releases/tag/0.56.2 Extract and copy the x3f_wrapper.app into your Applications folder. If ...
  • Try disconnect all external drives including network ones, restart mac before opening up SPP (first thing). Maybe (temporarily) move the files away from the folder set in SPP, so there's only a few ...
  • If you're on a mac - have you tried removing the SPP 6.5 using something like AppDelete? It removes all extra files, prefs list etc. http://www.reggieashworth.com/appdelete There are other app ...
  • I looked into this a while back, and the best option I came up with is to use the mobile camera to take an extra photo with the GPS turned on. Then use this to indicate where the Sigma photos were ...
  • Hi Roger, Quick answer no, but I mostly output to tiff then export to jpeg in another app from the original raw files. So, can you upload an example of your jpeg? Indicating exactly how you ...
  • Thank you Andrew, your post has been most useful...now about that pint ;)
  • You did not misunderstand me :) So, I wonder why we even have the sRGB/AdobeRGB option in the camera? For the embedded JPEG? ...and I agree if indeed there is a lot more RAW 'information' is ...
  • I probably don't understand, but if the sRGB in fully inside AdobeRGB, if the raw is captured as sRGB then exporting out as AdobeRGB will simply cut out the wider parts of gamut? I.e. You won't ...
  • I have my camera shoot in AdobeRGB, edit in that Color Space and then convert to 8-bit sRGB jpg as a last step for the web. I have yet to print any of my work. So, someone is probably asking why ...
  • For what it's worth, I thought your post was very useful. I've not had a chance to play around...but I'm interested in how this may potentially 'subdue' the Quattro 'fizziness'. I think you ...
